Review Articles

Assembler review articles

  • Assembly algorithms for next-generation sequencing data [1]
    Covers these assemblers: SSAKE, SHARCGS, VCAKE, Newbler, Celera, Euler, Velvet, ABySS, AllPaths, and SOAPdenovo.
    Compares de Bruijn graph to overlap/layout/consensus.

Technology review articles

  • Computational methods for discovering structural variation with next-generation sequencing. [2]
    A good 2009 review article on the state of paired-end sequencing. Includes some discussion of the difference between mate-pair and paired-end reads, the many types of of contig linkages they can produce, as well as discussion about data prossessing and available tools.

References should use the refnotes plugin (see the style page)

The formatting has been fixed; everyone please follow the new format. Use the level 2 header ( ====== ) for the categorization of review articles (e.g. Assembler review articles) and use bold for paper titles followed by a RefNotes citation for that paper (the paper titles use bold since the heading syntax does not work when followed by a RefNotes citation). When adding new review articles, please place them in alphabetical order. Any notes or information about the review article follows the title and reference for the paper.

The link works for me, but then I created it.

You can also try the link that appears further down in the citation:

Of course, if you are off-campus, you will need to use OCA Bookmarkelet from library with your library card, or some other UCSC library mechanism.

Broken link?

Actually, if someone knows a better way to format this, please help.

If we also include a section header, then once we get a lot of articles on this page there will be a table of contents linking to everything.
