Complete Genome Resequencing of Thermus thermophilus Strain TMY by Hybrid Assembly of Long- and Short-Read Sequencing Technologies

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2021 Nov 18;10(46):e0097921. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00979-21. Epub 2021 Nov 18.


Complete genome resequencing was conducted for Thermus thermophilus strain TMY by hybrid assembly of Oxford Nanopore Technologies long-read and MGI short-read data. Errors in the previously reported genome sequence determined by PacBio technology alone were corrected, allowing for high-quality comparative genomic analysis of closely related T. thermophilus genomes.
