Schematic workflow of the O. brevispinum de novo DNA and RNA assembly. The main software tools used at each step of the workflow are shown in parenthesis. Grey boxes indicate four main components of the workflow. DNA: library preparation, quality control, high-throughput sequencing, and de novo assembly of gDNA. RNA: transcriptome assembly described in a previous publication. Genome size estimation: two different strategies used to estimate the haploid genome size. Repeat Masking: identification and categorization of repetitive DNA in the gDNA assembly. We used FastQC at different workflow steps to track the effect of quality control procedures on the sequence reads (see dashed arrowhead lines)
