  • iCORN2 corrects PacBio assemblies

    We released iCORN2:


    iCORN2 was applied to correct several PacBio assemblies (Bacteria / Plasmodium). It requires short read pairs, and iteratively corrects errors, which in PacBio mostly indels.


    The current tar ball can be found at
    ftp://ftp.sanger.ac.uk/pub4/resource...orn2.V0.95.tgz

    Happy about (any) feedback!

    Sounds good to have an alternative !
    Can you give some estimation how long it takes to correct e.g. one PacBio cell with your program ?

      Icorn2 works on assembled genomes. It is quite powerfull to correct frameshifts that quiver does not correct.
      On a 20MB genome, with three iterations and around 100x Illumina coverage it should take around a day. To correct a 4MB bacteria takes 1h per iteration.

        I was afraid of that reply, since I am currently looking at a genome with ~1G and Illumina reads with 100x coverage
        I might give it at try for the final scaffolds nevertheless. Do you have any experience with data that large for your program ? I am wondering since I discovered that most PacBio tools are actually pretty limited to Bacteria genome sizes..

          Well, it might scale ok. All the components are working fine on large genome, the mapper (SMALT), GATK SNP, and the core icorn should work also. The only thing that won't work would be the checking of the perfect mapping reads. But we could twist the variant calling to be more stringent, so one could skip that.

          On another note, now is the assembly coming together? 1G is pretty big for PacBio...

            The assembly is actually a classical Illumina type and PacBio reads are used purely for scaffolding analysis.

            I will give it a try next week, THX

              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...
