  • Gene prediction - new species - augustus

    Hi,
    I am new to the bioinformatics field and I already tried getting my gene prediction with busco+augustus, scipio(merged proteins from cryptodb)+augustus but the results weren't corresponding to the expectations and specifics of the organism - lots of introns.

    The organism is cryptosporidium proliferans.
    I've only got the assembly from Mira. Is it possible to use coding and transcript sequences from close species (cryptosporidium muris - cryptodb files) to get hints and then reliable gene prediction?

    I am not sure how to train augustus right and then get good results. Or is there a better software you'd recommend?

    Thanks.

    Hi Morko,

    I would recommend MAKER (http://www.yandell-lab.org/software/maker.html). This is an annotation pipeline that will allow you to use homology-based predictions from closely related species, combined with computational prediction methods (such as augustus and GeneMark). The pipeline will run all of these methods then produce consensus predictions of the best gene models.

    Cheers,

    Matt.

      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.”

      A major leap in the field has
