COMMENT     Background:
             The Trypanosome cruzi JR strain cl4 was obtained from Dr. Gregory
            Buck, Center for the Study of Biological Complexity, Microbiology
            and Immunology, Virginia Commonwealth University.  This strain, a
            representative of the TcI lineage of T. cruzi (Hamilton et al.,
            2011), was isolated from a male patient, age 55, in chronic
            symptomatic stage of disease in Anzoategui, Venezuela by Dr. Hernan
            Carrasco and his colleagues at the Universidad Central de Venezuela
            (Lewis et al., 2009). A clonal derivative was prepared from
            epimastigote culture by plating on blood agar plates (M. Lewis) and
            used for sequencing.
             Genomic DNA was depleted for kinetoplast (mitochondrial) DNA
            (kDNA), which represents up to 30-50% of the total DNA in the cell,
            by Dr. Andrey Matveyev. In brief, total DNA was extracted from
            cultured late log phase T. cruzi JR epimastigote forms and
            submitted to low voltage electrophoresis in 0.8% low melting
            agarose. The gDNA-containing agarose blocks were excised from the
            gel, leaving the kDNA networks intact in the gel. Purified gDNA was
            recovered from the agarose blocks after digestion using
            Beta-agarase I.
             The gDNA was fragmented and sequenced using the Roche 454 FLX
            Titanium technology and a draft assembly was produced. Total
            sequence coverage from the Roche 454 technology was  approximately
            50X (fragments @ 22X, 3 Kb paired end (PE) @20X, 8 Kb PE @ 6.5X)
            using a genome size estimate of 40 Mbp. The combined sequence reads
            were assembled using the Newbler software (Roche 454). This first
            draft assembly was referred to as T._cruzi_JR cl4-1.1. The
            T._cruzi_JR cl4-1.1 version was manually edited to create version
            T._cruzi_JR cl4-1.1.1. In the T._cruzi_JR cl4-1.1.1 assembly 2962
            scaffold gaps were closed with Illumina read mapping and local
            assembly. Assembly error correction was done by aligning Illumina
            reads to correct insertion and deletion errors (6500). Finally, 22
            contaminating contigs were removed to yield version  T._cruzi_JR
            cl4-1.1.4. The T._cruzi_JR cl4-1.1.4 assembly is made up of a total
            of 18,177 scaffolds with an N50 scaffold length of over 72kb (N50
            contig length is 7.1 kb) and assembled size spans 40.5 Mb.
