A song, "Genome Assembly" written by Colleen O'Rourke (student) and Cara Wojciechowski (friend), to the tune of "Brave" by Sara Bareilles, and sung by Cara Wojciechowski, explaining the difficulty of genome assembly by short read sequencing but retaining a desire to assemble complex genomes.
Awesome song! Great singer, too...
