  • Finding 16s DNA Sequence in de novo assembled genome

    From time to time I find I'm working with a bunch of de novo assemblies. I've been interested in doing some comparative genomics and perhaps making some group-specific 16s rRNA primers.

    I'm just wondering if there is an accepted way of extracting 16s DNA from de novo assemblies that I'm just not finding.

    I've used BLAST and other Local alignment programs using universal primers, but this doesn't strike me as very efficient and I'm sure I'm not the only one trying do something like this. Can anyone point me toward any papers or personal experience doing something like this.

    Thanks!

    You can use a tool like barrnap

    HTML Code:

    or RNAmmer

    to predict rRNA locations on your contig sequences.

        Blast the contigs against a 16S db?

          That is a very straightforward approach and I have done that in past. I was just wondering if there was something that could quickly extract the sequences without reinventing the wheel.

          It looks like the barrnap program does a quick annotation and then I can use something like bedtools to extract the sequences using the produced GFF.

            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...
