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 geoduck tissue so that they can try to complete the genome sequencing efforts using the 10x genomics sequencing platform.
Assemble his BGI assembly and Platanus assembly? Confusing terms here; not sure what he means.
Failed due to 32-bit vs. 64-bit installation of MUMmer. He didn’t have the chance to re-compile MUMmer as 64-bit. However, a recent MUMmer announcement suggests that MUMmer can now handle genomes of unlimited size.
I believe he was planning on using (or was using?) GARM, which relies upon MUMmer and may also include a version of MUMmer (outdated version that led to Sean’s error message?).
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.
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.
The female RNA pool used 210ng of each sample, with the exception being sample #08. This sample used 630ng. The reason for this was due to the fact that there weren’t any other female samples to use from this developmental time point. The two other developmental time points each had three samples contributing to the pool. So, three times the quantity of the other individual samples was used to help equalize the time point contribution to the pooled sample. Additionally, 630ng used the entirety of sample #08.
The male RNA pool used 315ng of each sample. This number differs from the 210ng used for the female RNAs so that the two pools would end up with the same total quantity of RNA. However, now that I’ve typed this, this doesn’t matter since the libraries will be equalized before being run on the Illumina HiSeq2500. Oh well. As long as each sample in each pool contributed to the total amount of RNA, then it’s all good.
