    Thanks. That's useful information. It appears there are no paired-end files even though there should be, in other words, it looks like we didn't get all the data from the service provider (which doesn't exists anymore).

    If there is still an idea around how to get a simple yes/no answer from 454 sff files as to whether they are paired-end or not (and if yes, what the insert size is), I'd be very interested in that.

    Thanks again.

    If you start a newbler assembly and give it all your files, in the very first stage it will read the files and report if they contain paired-end reads. You can then kill the program.

    Unfortunately the service provider doesn't exist anymore, that's one of the problems, I would have certainly done that first.

    You're not the first to ask this, did you even try searching the forum? e.g.
    Pyrosequencing in picotiter plates, custom arrays for enrichment/decomplexing. (Roche)


    May I also point you at this useful read:

    You mean sffinfo etc. Yes I do.

    Thanks for the input.

    At the moment I really just want to make sure of what I have.

    How can I find out which of my sff files are paired end libraries and what the insert size is?

    Thanks.

    The SFF file format doesn't care or know if the reads are paired end or not. However, the Roche "Newbler" tools are aware of the linker sequences and should spot this automatically.

    If you are using something like MIRA which can't work directly from SFF files, the tool sff_extract is recommend. Essentially this searches each read for the Roche 454 pair end linker sequence and if found splits the read into a pair.

    started a topic ==> newbler and paired end

    ==> newbler and paired end

    Hello,

    I have newbler and a few sff files that I would like to assemble. Problem is the documentation is very sketchy and I don't know which sff file is paired end and what the insert size is.

    How can I find out?

    Or is newbler able to figure it out?

    Still I would like to have the information and make sure I am using newbler correctly.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks.

    Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
    by seqadmin


    New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
