  • Hi from Chapel Hill, NC

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the forum today and I love what I see. I've been in next gen sequencing for about two years. I worked on VCAKE, and it's still alive and kicking, now optimized for 454/Illumina bacterial genome assembly ... pipeline forthcoming at vcake.sourceforge.net hopefully in the next few weeks. I can't claim it as my work, but I might as well pump it up a little.

    Now I'm an MD/PhD student looking to apply the new genomics to clinical questions (particularly oncology). I've just spent 2 years in medical school so I am all but completely out of the loop, but I'm looking forward to getting back up to speed.

    hi,
    i have some vcake questions.
    does vcake consider both strands of the input sequence?

    i have short reads(31 long) , in my test case they all blat perfectly
    to a known genome and there seems to be decent overlap.
    but the vcake is not tying the contigs together, i am getting a
    max contig of 100 for a 1000 base region
    do you have any suggstions?

    thanks
    jpd

      The short answer is yes, it does consider both strands.

      My recommendation would generally be not to use VCAKE unless you are doing hybrid assemblies of 454 and Illumina data. VCAKE has not been maintained to deal with updates in the technologies, unlike some other algorithms. I would refer to this thread and try algorithms like Velvet, which make use of a more sophisticated graph decomposition method.

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. ā€œEpitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,ā€ explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
