  • 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.

          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.

            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
