  • Should you get sequenced? Not all bad genes predict disease

    “What we really don’t know yet is whether the predictive aspects of the genome are going to turn out to be beneficial or potentially harmful” “As we roll out genomic medicine we are fighting against this society-wide misconception that having the bad gene means you’...

  • Scaffolding of a bacterial genome using MinION nanopore sequencing

    Second generation sequencing has revolutionized genomic studies. However, most genomes contain repeated DNA elements that are longer than the read lengths achievable with typical sequencers, so the genomic order of several generated contigs cannot be easily resolved. A new generation of sequencer...

  • cutadapt

    Cutadapt finds and removes adapter sequences, primers, poly-A tails and other types of unwanted sequence from your high-throughput sequencing reads. Cleaning your data in this way is often required: Reads from small-RNA sequencing contain the 3’ sequencing adapter because the read is longe...
