Arima Hi-C: Because You Can’t Get Phased, Chromosome-Scale Genome Assemblies with Sequencing Alone

Great genome biology is built on a foundation of high-quality, phased, chromosome-scale genome assemblies. DNA sequencing technologies have made big strides in achieving long, accurate contigs, but they aren’t enough to deliver platinum quality genomes to support research for years to come. Adding Arima Hi-C data takes your assembly from a draft to a complete reference genome.

Why Choose Arima Hi-C for Your Genome Assembly?

Arima is the chosen Hi-C solution for some of the largest and most diverse genome sequencing consortia because of the quality, consistency, and user-friendly workflows that “just work”, regardless of the species being sequenced.
Fast and user-friendly workflow to go from sample to Hi-C library in 6 hours
Compatible with the latest assembly and scaffolding pipelines
Proven performance and quality you can trust while you focus on genome biology

 “The newer Arima kits are being used because we found them to be robust across a range of tissue types from diverse vertebrate and invertebrate species. Kit robustness to a diversity of samples is an essential requirement for the Darwin Tree of Life Project.”

“Arima Genomics is an integral technology partner of the G10K consortium and Phase I of the VGP project. Arima was selected for Phase I based on the quality of their data, proven by their ability to generate reproducible and high-quality data despite variability in input sample quality and quantity. The long-range genomic interactions from Arima-HiC data is an essential component of our current strategy for the generation of chromosome-spanning reference assemblies.”
