  • How to decide on a reference genome


    We are trying to assemble an unknown bacterial genome from Ion Torrent data.

    So far we have assembled contigs using mira. We tried a few gap-filling tools but didn't get very far with that.

    We now want to find the best reference genome possible for our sequence. Does anyone have advice on how we can do this?

    Well, you could take a long contig and BLAST it, or BLAST all the contigs and see what comes up.
    When you filter out a certain bacteria make sure you map your reads to all available strains because you dont know if you sequenced a new strain or which of the existing ones.

      A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
      by seqadmin

      ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

      Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
      by seqadmin
      Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

      The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
