Long-Reads Assembly with OmicsBox

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. OmicsBox now

Multilocus Sequence Typing MLST Analysis Tool

The Multilocus Sequence Typing Analysis Tool of OmicsBox (MLST) is a nucleotide sequence-based approach of characterizing isolates of bacterial species using the sequences of internal fragments of seven housekeeping genes. This video shows step-by-step how to analyze bacterial sequences with the MLST App in OmicsBox. As input, users can provide either DNA-Seq reads in FASTQ or contigs/scaffolds in FASTA format.

Amazon AWS NCBI Blast Search

(This feature is now obsolete.) In the following article, I will explain how to set up an EC2 instance with the Blast+ AMI. This NCBI webpage takes us to the most recent Blast+ AMI in the AWS Marketplace, which we want to configure after hitting “Continue” on the right-hand side. We can now play around with the Region and EC2
