A team of researchers from FER's Laboratory for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology in collaboration with Ruđer Bošković Institute and A*STAR Genome Institute of Singapore has developed a new method for de novo genome assembly. Compared to other similar methods, using this method it is feasible to assemble genomes several hundred times faster while maintaining similar accuracy.
The authors of the paper are Robert Vaser mag.comp. and Prof. Mile Šikić from Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, Dr. Ivan Sović, from Ruđer Bošković Institute and Dr. Niranjan Nagarajan from A*STAR Genome Institute of Singapore.
The paper was published in a prestigious Genome Research journal with impact factor 11.351.
