  • About assembly files

    I wanted to know what are the assembly files most commonly used for NexGen sequencing? I am familiar with the file afg, and ace (typical for sanger).

    The ace file is well documented but i can not find the documentation of afg file. Does anyone know where I can get it?

    I wonder if there are parsers (PERL language) available for both the ace and for afg? (to extract reads that make up the contig, the contig size, quality of reads, etc.)

    Best regards,

    The agp file format is descirbed here:

    I think there are bioperl modules that can parse the ace file...

      There definitely are. http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Module:B...mbly::Scaffold and http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Module:Bio::Assembly::IO Though you'll have some speed issues if you want to parse your 5 Gb of reads via perl.

        A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin

        ​​​​​​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...

        Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
        by seqadmin
        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
