  • high number of contig produced from genome assembly

    i have 11700000 paired end reads.when i run denovo assembly by Genious , 130000 contig is produced. can i help me to in this issue?????

    Your best bet is to contact Geneious tech support. Your question is very generic and you are using a commercial software package which is going to make it difficult to get useful help here.

      Anybody looking at this would need some more info: What type of organism? Which genome size is expected? What read lengths did you use? What library prep protocol and insert sizes?

        Given the fact that issues can occur anywhere beginning from samplequality,library-preparation, sequencing and last but not least parameter-settings used for assembly, it is hard to provide help with this minimum amount of information. But probably the first, cost and time effective thing you could try is to test a range of different kmer-sizes and keeping track of the changes in N50. Another thing you could check if your genome is diluted by very short sequence clusters (nearly readlength). Maybe throwing away all contigs <200bp still represents 99% of your target genome and you will end up with much less contigs in total.

          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...
