  • De novo genome assembly (Hybrid) - bacterial genome

    Hi,

    I would like to do an de novo genome assembly of a bacterial genome. I already have PacBio data and will now do Illumina sequencing, aditionally. I plan to do HiSeq, as I want to do a SNP analysis too. Which tool can a use to perform a hybrid assembly with PacBio and Illumina HiSeq data? PacBio gives me 5 contigs. Do you think that I can reduce the contigs with my HiSeq data?

    Thank you in advance!!

    You probably want to use miSeq in 2x250 for data aquisition.

    A couple of points with respect of experimental design:

    1. Make sure the Illumina libraries are PCR-free prep.
    2. Unless you want to do 96 genomes on one hiseq lane, use MiSeq, since hiseq would give too much data (you would have to subsample), also to ensure that you do 2x250 or 2x300 read length.

    So use Miseq (~10-16 samples per 2x250 or 2x300 run) or Hiseq2500 in 2x250 rapid run mode.

    This would help the downstream analysis (pacbio error correction/assembly) quite a lot. (compared to 2x100 or 2x150 bps read length), especially in the repeat regions.

    Tools:

      Illumina data are very unlikely stitch your Pacbio contigs together. I would suggest to try different assemblers and parameters on your Pacbio data.

        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...
