  • Suitable method for genome assembly using short reads

    Which illumina sequencing platform is more suitable for de novo genome assembly for genome size of 500Mb.?
    Illumina HiSeq or Novaseq6000?

  • #2

    I have a personal preference towards the NovaSeq because I used to work on one and heard coworkers who have previously used the HiSeq complain about some issues they've experienced. I don't know that this is true, but the NovaSeq has different flow cell options which allow you to obtain as many reads as you like.

    The only negative aspect about the NovaSeq that I'm aware of, is that people have issues sequencing G heavy regions since it is a 2-channel sequencer.

    Do you have access to your own machines or were you going to have the samples sent off somewhere? Also, do you know the number of reads and coverage you need for your experiment?

    Here's a paper where they compared data from several sequencers that may also be useful to you.

      A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
      by seqadmin

      ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

      Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
      by seqadmin
      Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

      The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
