  • Synteny analysis of unfinished sequencing species

    Dear everyone,

    Are complete genomic sequences or chromosome sequences necessary for synteny analysis ?
    If i just have some scaffold sequences of a species, Can i use it to analyze synteny of a targeted gene?

    Thank you very much!

    It depends on what your questions is. For looking a patterns of micro-synteny, you only need to compare small regions, and it isn't necessary to have whole chromosomes. However, it doesn't make sense to analyze synteny for a single gene because you need at least a few genes in a scaffold to possibly infer some type of rearrangement.

      If you have other ways to order the genes, such as a linkage or physical map, then you would be able to look for chromosome-scale rearrangements. But as SES says, you'll need some large scaffolds otherwise and then only be able to see changes if there are so many that every small region of the genome is altered.

          The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
          by seqadmin



          Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

          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.”

          A major leap in the field has
