Occasionally I publish a paper about some aspect of the dazzler system or about the assembly problem. Find below recent publications. Click on the link to see a .pdf of the paper.
Efficient Local Alignment Discovery amongst Long Reads: This paper appeared in WABI (Workshop on Algorithms for Bioinformatics) 2014. It describes the algorithms underlying the daligner. The algorithm for tracing local alignments has been improved over what is described there in, but the basic concept is correct.
A Short History of Assembly: This paper is about to appear in Information Technology, a German journal published by de Gruyter Oldenburg. It is a history of algorithms for DNA sequence assembly from my perspective. It covers the period 1983 – present.
