  • Velvet Question

    Hello, i am a new Velvet user and i am trying to assemble some libraries that i found in this site:


    I have some question about Velvet:

    1) Shuffle operation is needed always when more than 1 library is assembled? If is not needed always in what it helps?

    2)I saw this operation in the recipes of the site i mentioned:
    shuffleSequences_fastq.pl shortjump_1.fastq shortjump_2.fastq - | fastx_reverse_complement > shortjump.fastq
    What - | fastx_reverse_complement > shortjump.fastq is needed for?

    3)Using the the command above i have the following error:
    /var/spool/slurmd/job414800/slurm_script: line 21: fastx_reverse_complement: command not found
    Why this error is produced? Is it a problem of slurm? Can i fix it or there is another alternative?

    4) I also tried to use:
    fastq -shortPaired frag.fastq -shortPaired2 shortjump.fastq -shortPaired3 longjump.fastq
    but i have a problem with -shortPaired3. I have to put at max 2 parameters?

    Thank you a lot

    Hi,
    1). Shuffle script is to convert two paired files to single file readable by velveth. Please go through this link: http://www.molecularevolution.org/re...owtie_activity
    2). I have not tried this before, you can refer the fastx tools(http://hannonlab.cshl.edu/fastx_toolkit/), and see the command used, it is for Producing the Reverse-complement of each sequence in a FASTQ/FASTA file.
    3). "fastx_reverse_complement: command not found" because you do not have fastx installed on your system. But why do you want to Reverse-complement your sequences ???
    4). Your velvet installation is not supporting the 3rd library, Please re-install velvet with >2-3 libraries. And refer the section "2.3.2 CATEGORIES" of velevt manual "http://helix.nih.gov/Applications/velvet_manual.pdf". By default, there are only two short read categories, but this variable can be extended to your needs.
    Must go through this link: http://www.molecularevolution.org/re...owtie_activity.
    Best wishes,

      First of all thanks a lot for your answers.
      I want to ask something more about the command :
      - | fastx_reverse_complement > shortjump.fastq. Instead of installing fastx is there any other way to do it? Why here http://gage.cbcb.umd.edu/recipes/velvet.html the use it?
      I assembled without using it and just shuffling the 2 short jump libraries but i get in the case of Rhodobacter sphaeroides a N50 of 27bp and i think is too small. The input parameters i used are the same with the site(k-mer 31 exp_cov auto). They obtain i much bigger N50 358kbp. I think the problem is related to the reverse complement. Do you have any idea about what can i do to solve the problem without install fastx tools because i encounter difficulties in installing them?
      Thanks again a lot

        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...
