  • Identifying a draft genome

    Hi everyone,
    I have a draft genome which was binned from a bacterial metagenome. I know for certain that the genome doesn't have a 16s gene in it, but should be fairly complete with 42 single copy bacterial genes present. I wish to identify the taxonomy of this genome. By BLASTing several ORFs in the genome against NCBI's nr database I have a reasonable idea to which taxon it belongs, but when running MAUVE to align my binned genome and a draft genome from NCBI I don't get a nicely re-ordered genome, only a mess...
    so my question has two parts:
    1. Is there an online tool to which I can upload my draft genome and it will run it again its database to produce similarity values to known genomes ?
    2. Which other tools would you recommend in order to asses the completeness of the genome ?

    Thanks!

    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...
