Technical Abstract: Advancements in genome sequencing and assembly have enabled high quality references for livestock species. This presentation discusses the benefits of these assemblies as well as the direct impacts that researchers can expect on their fields of study. The main technological advancement, long read sequence data, is explored in further detail as a means of generating high quality references for genetics research. Finally, use of this technology is explored as a means of finally generating useful metagenomic assembly of microbial species in the cattle rumen.
