Abstract

Sequencing technologies allow for an in-depth analysis of biological species but the size of the generated datasets introduce a number of analytical challenges. Recently, we demonstrated the application of numerical sequence representations and data transformations for the alignment of short reads to a reference genome. Here, we expand out approach for de novo assembly of short reads. Our results demonstrate that highly compressed data can encapsulate the signal suffi- ciently to accurately assemble reads to big contigs or complete genomes.
