  • SOAPdenovo

    Hi

    I want to use SOAPdenovo assembler for my solexa short reads.
    But am not understanding what is Configuration file and how can I do that? Can any one explain me this Configuration file and help me to start.


    thanks..

      Hi,

      I has similar questions so I just mailed the people from SOAP (look for email at their website). I got quick answers and they helped me to optimize my parameters!!

      Really helpful.

          I also did the same but it keeps giving me [LIB] command not found error. does anyone know how to solve this problem please.

            Did you get "[LIB] command" not found? First I read "[LIB] not found" and interpreted it as SOAP didn't find the fastq file - I had that problem and it helped when I added the full path instead of "~"-annotation (changing ~/soap/file.fastq to /home/linnea/soap/file.fastq).
            The format of the config file is quite strict, for example you are not allowed to have any extra blank lines in the end.

            But if it says command not found it sounds like it's trying to run the config file or something.. What command did you use for starting SOAP?

              Hi Lennea,
              It actually said [LIB] not found. I used my mackbook to install the tools and it didn't work until I realized that it doesn't wrok on mac so I had to install Parallels so I can run Windows applications in my Mac. Problem was solved and I'm enjoying working on Parallels.

                Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
                by seqadmin


                Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

                Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
                by seqadmin


                Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
