  • MaSuRCA adapter trimming


    I am currently trying MaSuRCA, I get nice results but I think they can be further improved.

    I made some test on a subset of reads, with or without clipping adapters before passing it to MaSuRCA. As advised in the short manual, I got better results with the full reads.

    When quorum starts it says in quorum.err: "Loading contaminant sequences", so I assume that there is somewhere a contaminant library, such as for example masurca/share/adapters.jf

    in the output PREFIX.cor.fa, I have plenty of my adapters, how can I specify my adapter sequences to quorum/MaSuRCA? Should I make a new adapters.jf file? My adapters are simple illumina TruSeq.

    Has somebody done that?

    Many thanks for all your thoughts !

    Ooops, I*should have had a more careful look. While I*don't know what is exactly in the share/adapter.jf I*made my own:

    ../bin/jellyfish count -m 24 -s 5k -C -t 10 -o adapters_yvan.jf adapters.fa && mv adapter.jf adapter.jf_old && ln -s adapters_yvan.jf adapter.jf

    And it works well. I could have deleted the post but some might find it useful.

      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
