  • Direction! I could use some!

    Hello SEQanswers!

    Where should a guy go to get practice for learning de novo genome assembly?

    Thanks for any help!

    You could likely pick something small like E. coli from here:



    See if there publicly available reads similar to what you are expecting to sequence and assemble them. Since these genomes are already finished you can always compare the contiguity and N50 metrics of your assembled draft vs the published genome.

      Thanks

      Thanks very much for the advice, I'm about to start doing just that.

        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...
