SAC - Sequencing and Assembly Committee

SAC - Sequencing and Assembly Committee

The Sequencing and Assembly Committee (SAC) aims to foster collaboration within the ERGA community by organising, coordinating efforts, and providing a platform for exchanging ideas in topics regarding genome assembly methods. SAC actively engages with other ERGA committees, genome projects, and consortia to maintain updated workflows and develop standardised pipelines aligned with ERGA's mission and quality requirements. Furthermore, the committee is establishing a framework for assembly evaluation to ensure high-quality standards are met and addresses complex cases by seeking feedback from the community. ERGA-SAC is also committed to producing guidelines, materials, SOPs, and best practices to facilitate ongoing improvement and knowledge sharing.

Looking for assistance and guidance with how to assemble a genome?

The Sequencing and Assembly Committee can help!

  • Join our Slack Channel! Here you can post your questions and start conversations with the Sequencing and Assembly community from the ERGA consortium.

  • Use our resources! Here we have a collection of Genome Assembly Workshops collected and curated by the members of the ERGA SAC.

  • Join our mailing list! Send an email to to join the ERGA Sequencing and Assembly mailing list and get regular updates about the activities of the SAC.

  • Present at our meetings! Send and email to to request a slot to present at a SAC meeting if you would like feedback on your project. We can advise on steps to improve an assembly or potential pipelines that you may find useful.
