Continuing Illumina’s generous efforts to use our geoduck samples to test out the robustness of their emerging sequencing technologies, they have requested we send them some more geoduck tissue so that they can try to isolate higher molecular weight DNA to complete the genome sequencing efforts using the 10x genomics sequencing platform.

Due to weird connection issues we’ve recently encountered with our server, Owl (Synology DS1812+), I connected the HDD directly to Owl via USB (instead of connecting to a computer and transferring). I transferred the data using the Synology web interface to avoid any computer/NAS connection issues that might interrupt the transfer.
We have a meeting with the Illumina people tomorrow afternoon to review the data they’ve provided (looks like it’s going to take awhile, though). Once that meeting takes place, we’ll figure out how to document this project in our data management plan.
For quickest reference, here’s Jay’s spreadsheet with virtually all the sample/index/barcode/pooling info (Google Sheet): ddRAD/EpiRAD_Jan_16
I’ve downloaded both the demultiplexed and non-demultiplexed data, verified data integrity by generating and comparing MD5 checksums, copied the files to each of the three species folders on owl/nightingales that were sequenced (Panopea generosa, Anthopleura elegantissima, Porites astreoides), generated and compared MD5 checksums for the files in their directories on owl/nightingales, and created/updated the readme files in each respective folder.
Data management is detailed in the Jupyter notebook below. The notebook is embedded in this post, but it may be easier to view on GitHub (linked below).
Readme files were updated outside of the notebook.
Hollie Putnam prepared some reduced representation bisulfite Illumina libraries and had them sequenced by Genewiz.
The data was downloaded and MD5 checksums were generated.
IMPORTANT: MD5 checksums have not yet been provided by Genewiz! We cannot verify the integrity of these data files at this time! Checksums have been requested. Will create new notebook entry (and add link to said entry) once the checksums have been received and we can compare them.
