  • CLC Genome Finishing Plugin

    Hey everyone,

    I'm not sure how many people know about this, and presumably even fewer could have CLC to try it, but two days ago I noticed that CLC has a beta version of a plugin for Genomics Workbench that is supposed to help you finish off a genome using paired read data, primarily from the MiSeq it appears. From the available tutorial it seems like it relies heavily on contig alignment and trying to use pair distances to bridge contigs, which is something that I've been manually doing in an attempt to close the genome for the primary strain we use for making mutants.

    There's a trial of the plugin that I'm planning on testing, but I wanted to see if anyone else has tried it and what their impressions are. It's not going to be a free plugin, so I'm wondering how well it works and whether or not it would ultimately be worth the price (which I've yet to get a quote for) compared to what I've been doing manually myself.

    There also is a blast2GO plugin that's in beta and is similarly not going to be free, for those that care to know. Not sure how much it extends the standard blast2GO or if it's mostly to integrate annotation into CLC's GUI interface.

    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...
