Extraction and selection of high-molecular-weight DNA for long-read sequencing from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

Abstract

Abstract Recent advances in long-read sequencing technologies have enabled the complete assembly of eukaryotic genomes from telomere to telomere by allowing repeated regions to be fully sequenced and assembled, thus filling the gaps left by previous short-read sequencing methods. Furthermore, long-read sequencing can also help characterizing structural variants, with applications in the fields of genome evolution or cancer genomics. For many organisms, the main bottleneck to sequence long reads remains the lack of robust methods to obtain high-molecular-weight (HMW) DNA. For this purpose, we developed an optimized protocol to extract DNA suitable for long-read sequencing from the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii , based on CTAB/phenol extraction followed by a size selection step for long DNA molecules. We provide validation results for the extraction protocol, as well as statistics obtained with Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequencing.
