NRG will coordinate the sequencing of multiple species and consequently assemble them into a high accuracy comprehensive and contiguous reference sequence. These high-quality assemblies will enable the different scientific tasks in the project such as genome annotation and comparative genomics tasks to be executed by other partners.
NRG is the world’s leading genomics company utilizing the power of cloud computing to deliver astonishing results and deciphering even the most complex genomes. NRG’s DeNovoMAGICTM is a unique assembly tool, in that it is currently the only solution capable of routinely, reliably, quickly, and affordably producing new reference genomes for even the most complex, large, heterozygous and polyploid genomes. Moreover, it is backed by a commercial-grade service provider that is responsible for the project delivery, timeline and quality of the results. To note a few of its accomplishment, NRG has successfully assembled the genome of tetraploid wild emmer wheat and produced the best assembly available (as well as the first) of hexaploid bread wheat for the International Wheat Genome Sequence Consortium (IWGSC) along with a dozen of other wheat assemblies made for the 10+ genome project lead by Prof Curtis Pozniak (University of Saskatchewan- unpublished). NRG also produced an assembly of the large heterozygote Italian ryegrass genome for Prof Bruno Studer of ETH Zurich (unpublished), 6 different tetraploid potato varieties for a consortium led by Dr. Richard Finkers (WUR NED unpublished). Other species worthy of noting are octoploid heterozygote strawberry, hexaploid heterozygote sweet potato, and grapevine for Prof. Sachiko Isobe (Kazusa DNA Research Institute, unpublished) and over 400 other genomes. NRG’s assemblies are of the highest quality and impactful in accelerating genetic research (as reviewed in the publication list).
