Some assembly required
Yes, you read that right- in this paper the scaffolds were assembled on pieces of paper on a large table. That’s how they did it old school- like 1995 old school for sequencing (incidentally that’s just FOUR years after my first sequencing experiment). The assembly took about a day.
