  • Any de novo assembly software can produce ace file?

    I was used to edit the sequence in consed, so is there any software producing ace file for solexa data?
    I've tried Edena, it seems to obtain good assembly result, but having no ace files.

    thx.

    Not that I know of. Now that I'm done fixing bugs (for the near future), I'll try and add this to euler-sr.

      I think abyss can produce ace files.

      At least the current version contains a perl script "abyss2ace" but I never tested it because it is not very well documented.

        abyss2ace

        abyss2ace isn't very well documented at the moment. I've add some Perl POD --help and --man options for the next release. The brief synopsis follows. To load the resulting ACE file in Consed, use

        consed -nophd -ace out.ace

        Cheers,
        Shaun

        SYNOPSIS
        KAligner -k K reads.fa contigs.fa >alignments.kalign
        abyss2ace reads.fa contigs.fa alignments.kalign >out.ace

        DESCRIPTION
        Create a Consed ACE assembly from an ABySS assembly. The reads are
        first aligned against the contigs using KAligner. These alignments are
        then converted to an ACE assembly.

          there's a link (albeit not very conspicuous) to the mailing list:

              Consed itself writes ACE files ..:

              addSolexaReads.perl will use cross_match to align reads against a given reference.
              Well, if you'd like to assemble denovo this does not work.

              Velvet does write AMOS afg files which can be converted into ACE ..

              cheers,
              Sven

                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...

                Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
                by seqadmin


                Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
