Macaca fascicularis (cynomolgus macaque) Sequence Assembly Release Notes
 The cynomolgus macaque DNA for shotgun sequencing, is derived from a female, 5.8 yrs old, provided by Dr. Jay Kaplan and originated from "Tinjil", not a native location for cynomolgus, rather ... it is an island off the south coast of Java that was seeded with monkeys by the Washington National Primate Center. The original animal was trapped in eastern Sumatra. Sequences were generated on the Illumina HiSeq for assisted and de novo assembly. Sequence genome coverage for each paired end read type is as follows: 50x 300-500bp inserts, 10x 3kb insert and 2x 8kb insert. 
 Two independent assemblies were built with all sequence data, using an assisted assembler and the de novo assembler SOAP. The workflow for the assisted assembley is as follows: 1) map reads to reference and filter alignments using SRprism (unpublished but in process of being written up) that reports all alignments of equally good quality. Filtering is done by first finding out the histogram for per library insert size seen in alignments, deciding which range to use (usually tightest 99th percentile), and then retaining paired reads that have correct orientation with insert size in the desired range. Different data types (Illumina, traces, solid, 454) have slightly different filtering criteria. 2) use mapped and filtered reads for building consensus contigs. 3) find consecutive contigs that are bridged by mate pairs having 30-mers each on either side of the gap, de-novo assembly in gaps between bridged contigs: 30-mers from reads are used to build an index for de-novo assembly, only filter out reads and reads mapped to contig ends that go into that index, set a predefined maximum gap size and number of iterations used to limit the resources spent on any particular gap. 4) Find structural differences between scaffolds built and reference by using paired reads with mates on different scaffolds and do de-novo gap filling between reordered scaffolds [in progress]. The reference genome used to align cynomolgus macaque reads was the published version (MMUL_1) of rhesus macaque and a updated rhesus macaque assembled version not yet published (courtesy of Aleksey Zimin). Using the assisted assembly as the reference we aligned and merged the de novo assembly using the GAA tool.
 In the final assembly, referred to as Macaca_fascicularis_5.0, there were 102,878 contigs with an N50 contig length of 85 kb. There were 7627 supercontigs (scaffolds) with the N50 supercontig length of 144 Mb. A total of 2.8 Gb was assembled in contigs.
