  • de novo assemble of metagenomics sequences

    Hi guys:
    We now doing assemble metagenomics sequences which are from 454 GS FLX platform using Titanium Kit. There are 3 softwares (Newbler, Celera assembler and MIRA3) designed for 454 sequences. Is anyone has the experience use this softs? And how to set the best parameter for metagenome? How to confirm the accuracy of result owing to lack the reference genomes?

    Thanks.

    i am also interested in getting information about mira3 assembly with rna-seq data... so can anyone pls give a hint...

    thx a lot

      You might be able to align against a reference genome / database with Blast etc, provided they exist.

      Otherwise you can do
      chimera checks
      or genefinding

      to check the accuracy of the contigs.

      From what I have seen Newbler is the best assembler for 454, but I haven't compared the others.

        And if you do use newbler (or others), perhaps increase alignment stringency to try to prevent getting similar parts of the different genome assembled together, check out the -mi and -ml parameters (see also this post).

        I've always wanted to try newblers cdna assembly option for metagenomes (just never got to it) because I think it could do a good job of assembling together those reads that come from the same part of the 'same' gene/genome in the samples... You would need to run clustering of the isotigs of each isogroup (e.g. by using cd-hit) afterwards, though...

          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...

          Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
          by seqadmin


          Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
