De novo transcriptome assemblies are required to analyze RNA-seq data from a species for which there is no reference genome. However, with the advancement of next-generation sequencing technologies, the amount of available sequencing data is growing exponentially. Because of this, assembly algorithms often generate a large number of transcripts. Removing redundancy from such data could be crucial for reducing storage space,
Third-generation DNA sequencing technologies allows scientist to generate longer sequence reads, which can be used in whole-genome sequencing projects to yield better repeat resolution and more contiguous genome assemblies. However, although long-read sequencing technologies can produce genomes with long contiguity, the relatively high error rate of long reads has made it challenging to generate highly accurate final sequences.

De novo transcriptome analysis in Datura metel and identification of genes related to withanolides biosynthesis pathway
BioBam Scholarship Supported Project – with OmicsBox. Researchers: Madhavi Hewadikaram Dr Sanjaya Deepal Bathige Prof. Veranja Karunaratne Project overview Withanolides are secondary plant compounds that belong to a family of C28 ergostane-type steroidal δ lactones that mainly belong to the family Solanaceae of the plant kingdom. Withanolides have held the interest and its importance in the scientific community owing to

Identification and Expression analysis of genes involved in endodormancy break in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)
BioBam Scholarship Supported Project – with OmicsBox. Researchers: Madhuri Gupta Dr. Pushpender Kumar Project and Overview At harvest, potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) tubers, one of the most important crops among vegetables, are dormant and will not sprout. Tubers contain shoot apical meristems on their surface with the ability to differenciate and grow into a new clone of the parent plant.
In this use case we will use the metagenomics tools included in OmicsBox to analyze the microbial communities of two different soda lakes from Brazil. The original study was carried out by Ana P. D. Andreote, et al., 2018 (doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00244). Introduction Soda lakes are special ecosystems found across Africa, Europe, Asia, etc. These lakes show high levels of sodium
