  • New to genome assembly

    Hi,

    My name is Jason Somers and I am currently a PhD student in the Genetics department of The University of Melbourne. I am situated at the Bio21 institute in the Batterham Lab. Our lab has just funded the solexa (re)-sequencing of two Drosophila EMS generated mutant strains and the background strain the mutants were created in.

    I have little background in bioinformatics and the support I have is not always around to answer my questions. So please forgive any basic questions I have while I try to understand the assembly and analysis process.

    Cheers

    Jason

    Hi,

    You are absolutely not alone Jason, i have just boarded to newbie club of sequence assembly .

    I am a student too, MS from Turkey. I am snitching around, seeking for some cookbooks, recipes or clear instructions on this topic, so far i can not name myself as "succeeded". So far i did some primer design from 454 data, it is exciting, that might be only thing i can say right now.
    I guess i'll see you around..

    Best,

      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. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist on Modified Bases...

      Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
      by seqadmin


      Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
