    Thanks a lot jts. I will try velvetOptimiser.

    It looks like the perl script simply selects the mode of the k-mer frequency histogram: 1 and 17 are the most frequent values in the two histograms you show. The histogram for k=31 looks as expected to me (many low-frequency k-mers which represent k-mers with sequencing errors then a proper distribution of k-mers around 40-45X). The k=51 histogram does not look right. I would guess the k=51 assembly failed for some reason - probably not enough coverage to support that high kmer length.

    I suggest trying the VelvetOptimiser script which is included with velvet.

    Velvet assembly

    I have run velvet for hash length 31 and 51 without setting any parameters.Then I calculated exp_cov and cov_cutoff using given perl script (velvet-estimate-exp_cov.pl).

    For the hash 31, I found velvetg parameters exp_cov and cov_cutoff to be 1 and 0. I expected these values to go further down for hash 51 (since higher K-mer gives lower coverage). But surprisingly, it was 17 and 0. I have attached the outputs of the perl script for two hash lengths.

    Could anyone explain this?

    Expected coverage

    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...
