  • MaSuRCA adapter trimming

    Hello,

    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.

    Best,

    Yvan

      Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
      by seqadmin


      The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

      Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
      by seqadmin




      The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
