There is a very recent publication in collaboration with Tobias Marschall and his group at the MPI in Saarbrücken in Bioinformatics on a new algorithm called SaaRclust for de novo assembly. SaaRclust aligns single-cell Strand-seq data directly onto long reads to perform an in silico separation of the data into chromosomes prior to assembly. By using the directionality of Strand-seq they clustered long sequencing reads by chromosomal origin and haplotype.
