Is Perfect Assembly Possible? Gene Myers’ Talk at #AGBT15

Gene Myers gave a talk title “Is Perfect Assembly Possible?” in a talk at PacBio workshop at AGBT15. The first half of his talk addressed theoretical aspects of the question “Is Perfect Assembly possible?”. Most of the content is basically from Gene Myers’ first blog post written after AGBT 2014 and the “tweet-theorem”.

Thm: Perfect assembly possible iff a) errors random b) sampling is Poisson c) reads long enough 2 solve repeats. Note: e-rate not needed
