Hi thanks for the help, i spoke to some companies that provide different types of sequencing services i managed to get the cheapest price for pacbio to $1900. I also managed to get a quote for optical mapping for half the price (but of course id need to do some sanger sequencing to complete the genome if i use the optical map service).

Considering i have 23 contigs and the nucleotide coverage is about 99.7% do you think optical mapping would be cost effective in the end??, has any one used this service for scaffolding and checking quality of assembly and do they have any pros and cons as compared sequencing methods??
