  • Consed is very similar to gap4 and now assembles illumina short reads.

    I have been happy with the assembly to a reference sequence & the contig viewer & searching for highly discrepant regions.

    hope this is of help



    • CNV-seq

      a package to detect DNA copy number variation using shotgun sequencing.


      • MapView: a short reads alignment viewer with genetic variation analysis, visualization of short reads alignment on desktop computer

          Seconded. MACS is a useful tool.

            i think i will post a query on the UCSC listserver
            [email protected]
            and see if someone like Jim Kent is thinking about some utility that could facilitate reference assembly on a local Genome Browser ... he's the guy i think who initiated BLAT and isPCR on their site


            the browser can be installed locally and used with any genome ... but without taking into account quality values from the reads its hard to imagine not getting just a mess doing a BLAT-like alignment ... i think

            Is there anybody have the experience to install UCSC locally with other genome database like arabidopsis? I hope I can find a detailed procedure to set it locally.


            • xuer
              the browser is well documented ... suggest you write to the nice folks on the listserver there

              • Meeting in Berlin this month

                Xuer, you might also access TAIR scientists who will be attending the International Biocuration Conference in Berlin later this month.


                • RudyS,Thank you for the reply.for me the Installation if UCSC is finished, next i need to set the arabidopsis assembly. hopefully it goes well.

                  Joann, Thank you for the information.The topics are interesting , i hope i could be there.


                  • How about Genomatix?

                    Hate to be so blatantly commercial, but in the "not for free" category, you should add Genomatix. No sales pitch here...but check out the vendor forum! Complete analysis capabilities for all current platforms...thanks.


                    • Release V2.03.12 of Novoalign is out. This release improves performance especially for longer reads and is a 4-5 times faster on 45bp reads against Human. Longer reads have improved even more. Performance improvement is more pronounced when allowing more mismatches (higher thresholds).

                      It also seems our web site has been blocked in China so if any one in China wants a copy of novoalign please email me at colin at novocraft dot com. I'll create a mailing list and keep you informed of any updates etc.


                      • I think it will be a good idea to include RNA-SEQ tools in the huge table. The one tool I know for that = erange


                        • Any more ChIP-seq analysis tools that we should add here?

                          Also, does anyone know if the program from the Poisson mixture method paper is publicly available?:

                          Or if anything has been published about the ChIP-seq Analysis server?

                            The Bioconductor 'chipseq' package / programs should be added for sure! See also the other thread on this topic:

                              I'd like to second the call for including RNA-seq tools, e.g. ERANGE, TOPHAT, G-Mo.R-se... any others??

                                  ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

                                  Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

                                  The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes

                                  AVITI from Element Biosciences: Latest Sequencing Technologies—Part 6
                                  by seqadmin
                                  Element Biosciences made its sequencing market debut this year when it released AVITI, its first sequencer. The AVITI System uses avidity sequencing, a novel sequencing chemistry that delivers higher quality data, decreases cycle times, and requires lower reagent concentrations. This new instrument reportedly features lower operating and start-up costs while maintaining quality sequencing.
