  • Polyploid Assemblers

    Sorry, I'm new in the field and this may seem like a silly question but I need your help.

    How do polyploid genomes (triploid, tetraploid, .... ) are assembled? Which assembler is best to use? Does each subgenome is assembled alone? If yes, then can we use haploid assemblers instead, and then collapse them together?

    I asked this because I saw a number of diploid assemblers (such as FALCON) but none for triploid or other polyploids genome.

    Thanks in advance.

    Diploid assemblers are very new, and are only being applied by pioneering groups in the last couple of years. To my knowledge most groups are still doing haploid assemblies, and noone has delved into polyploid assemblies with success to date. I don't know how huge projects like the Intl Wheat genome seq consortium deal with these issues. Probably with BAC assemblies, PacBio, Nanopore and other commercial methods.

      Yes, diploid assemblers are new in the area, and view of them exists.
      So, from what you said I could infer that the complexity of developing polyploid assembler is the reason that there is none in the domain yet. Am I right?

      Thanks for the reply.

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
