  • Assembly of Large Genomes using Cloud Computing by Contrail

    I have found a new software (the code source is not available yet) for large genomes assembly(http://sourceforge.net/projects/contrail-bio/). It relies on Hadoop to iteratively transform an on-disk representation of the assembly graph, allowing an in depth analysis even for large genomes, which can reduce the memory requirement. Contrails also use de Brujin graph strategy to do the short reads assembly.
    for more see the wiki: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...title=Contrail

    does anyone know when the first release of Contrail is scheduled?

    The quality of software coming from the Salzberg and Pop labs has been very high. Despite the inelegant name, I am really looking forward to seeing how Contrail compares with Velvet, Abyss, SOAPdenovo, etc..

      I am also wondering if this assembler is written in entirely in Java. Isn't that a Hadoop requirement?

          The source code has been released but it does not look like one could just run it. No documentation, no hints. Any word on when a usable version might be available?

              has anyone gotten this up and running? does it read raw sequence files? so many questions!

                Hi all,

                I managed to get contrail up and running.

                Here is how to run the program on the test case provided by Schatz.

                  Such an amazing post! This is an interesting thread. I wonder how effective this cloud computing is.

                    Effectiveness of which one are you asking about - cloud computing in general or hadoop?

                    Cloud computing basically allows you to rent computer time from some company managing the hardware. To an user, it is nothing different from using a local supercomputing facility at the university or other place.

                    Hadoop is a different paradigm and has been useful for large data. You can even set it locally and do not need cloud computing for it. I have few posts on hadoop for bioinformatics.

                      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
                      by seqadmin




                      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

                      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
                      by seqadmin


                      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
