  • 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.

        Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin



        While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
