Scientists can now assemble entire genomes on their personal computers in minutes

Scientists have developed a technique for reconstructing whole genomes, including the human genome, on a personal computer. This technique is about a hundred times faster than current state-of-the-art approaches and uses one-fifth the resources. The study allows for a more compact representation of genome data inspired by the way in which words, rather than letters, offer condensed building blocks for language models.
