    Reverse complementary reads in Mummmer

    The repeat-match program in mummer, claims to return reverse complementary repeats, and mark them with 'r'. However, I found that the repeats returned are complementary repeats, not reverse complementary.

    For example if position 10-14 in my sequence are AAGG and position 20-24 are TTCC, these are not reverse complementary repeats but mummer repeats them. Am I doing something wrong here?

    Further, do complementary repeats even matter in genome assembly. Reverse complementary repeats matter, but I do not think complementary repeats should matter as the reads we get from the forward and reverse strands are in opposite directions.

    Edit: sorry the title should have been Reverse complementary repeats in Mummer, rather than Reverse complementary reads in Mummer.

    Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
    by seqadmin




    The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

    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...
