  • Finding circular DNAs

    I've seen a few older threads on this, but no real consensus yet. Anyone have a script or method for finding circular DNAs (*osmids, minicircles) in an assembly? I suppose it's really just as "simple" as discovering the motif which is repeated and the beginning and end of the contig where it's circularized. Anyone attempted anything like this yet?

    I looked for plasmids in my assemblies by looking for contigs with the same sequence at both ends. I was able to verify that some of the contigs were plasmids by PCR and sequencing but I was not able to get a product for most of them though I was not very exhaustive in the primers that I tried. While this method works, I don't know that I would trust that you found circular DNA without a second verification.

      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.”

      The 3D Genome: New Technologies and Emerging Insights
      by seqadmin


      The study of three-dimensional (3D) genomics explores the spatial structure of genomes and their role in processes like gene expression and DNA replication. By employing innovative technologies, researchers can study these arrangements to discover their role in various biological processes. Scientists continue to find new ways in which the organization of DNA is involved in processes like development1 and disease2.
