Long read sequencing allows generation and improvement of chromosome-level de novo assemblies of complex plant genomes. Long reads are particularly useful to reveal structural variants and to characterize regions harboring repeats sequences that are difficult to resolve. In addition, haplotypes determined using long-range genomic information are valuable for application in breeding programs.
