I don't know much about the genomics of different E. coli strains but isn't that coverage relatively low? If you just mapped the reads to one or more of the known E. coli genomes, what coverage would...

Hi Capricy - no updated ideas yet... How do you know your Illumina assembly covers only 50% of the genome? What kind of libraries did you use, and what coverage did you get on the assembled parts?...

Hybrid assembly with low coverage PacBio libraries

Hi everyone,

We are working on sequencing the genomes of a few bacteria and microalgae. We recently had a PacBio run which provided pretty bad results (only 76 MB of data - ~15x coverage of our...

Advice on getting good PacBio libraries

Hi everyone,

We are having issues getting good quality PacBio libraries from Bacteria and microalgae. Specifically, we got low yield (76 MB) and low length (5,800 bp) from several libraries run on...

Very large distance matrix using MOTHUR

Hello,

We are trying to process a large dataset (~200 samples, each with ~100,000 Illumina 250bp 16S reads) using MOTHUR. We now have reached the stage of making a distance matrix to identify...

Hi
It seems to me that it is always better to treat each replicate separately, at least at the stage of library preparation and sequencing. Not being able to describe the biological variability is...

Comparing RNA-seq libraries with different levels of PCR duplication

Hi all,

We are analyzing a set of RNA-seq libraries and noticed that our libraries have very different levels of PCR duplicates, resulting in very different levels of complexity: some libraries...

How can one identify "real" antisense transcripts in prokaryote genomes?

Thanks for the tip - but this does not seem to be the case. We are using relatively few reads and get FPKM=0 with "OK" and not "HIDATA".

looking at IGV, it seems that in several of these cases...

We might try running it directly but part of the idea is to implement BWA as part of a workflow in Galaxy (we are poor "wet" biologists trying to survive in a world of millions of reads...).

FPKM=0 in cufflinks - but there are reads mapped to these genes!

We are using BAM to map Illumina reads to a bacterial genome, followed by Cufflinks to get the FPKMs (implemented in Galaxy). We have come across many genes for which we get FPKM=0...

Hi Dong,
Thanks for your reply. Our reads are 40bp long after QC. When we allow n=1 we get many millions of mapped reads(~90% of the reads map well), and increasing n from 1-5 increases the number...
