  • Multiple libraries of different lengths - single or seperate assemblies?

    Hi!

    I have three Ion torrent libraries; a 600bp, 400bp and a 200bp library. I intend to use SPAdes to assemble the reads into contigs but am unsure whether I can use three different sized libraries in a single assembly? (As I'm pretty sure it's going to have an affect on the optimal k-mer value).

    Has anyone used various read sizes in a single assembly or would it be wiser to assemble one library at a time and use the resultant contigs from the first assembly as "untrusted contigs" in the next assembly and so on?

    Any advice would be massively appreciated!!

    SPAdes documentation seems to indicate that the distribution of insert size is important to some of its heuristics, but I think coverage is more important... also it's a multi-kmer assembler so you don't need a single ideal kmer length. I normally run with K=25,55,95,125. I'd just feed them all into SPAdes.

        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.”
