The Irys platform by BioNano Genomics seems to be a useful tool by which to help assess the completeness and contiguity of genome assemblies. I noticed today that they are holding an webinar which may be of interest some of the readers of this blog. From the webinar registration page:
Please join us for our Hybrid Scaffold webinar. We will discuss the applications of the software, which include the building of longer contigs, validation of existing contigs, and acquisition of novel map level information. Experimental design considerations will be reviewed for ideal data integration. We will walk through each stage of Hybrid Scaffold troubleshooting data optimization and pointing out files of interest.
