Breaking Cell Barriers with Retractable Protein Nanoneedles
Adapting a bacterial structure, institute researchers have developed protein actuators that can mechanically puncture cells.
Gene Signature could Lead to a New Way of Diagnosing Lyme Disease
Lyme disease patients had distinctive gene signatures that persisted for at least three weeks, even after they had taken the antibiotics.
Retractable Protein Nanoneedles
The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.
Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications
The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.
A Crystal Clear View of Biomolecules
Fundamental discovery triggers paradigm shift in crystallography.
Could the Food we Eat Affect Our Genes?
Almost all of our genes may be influenced by the food we eat, according to new research.

White paper on de novo assembly in CLC Assembly Cell 3.0
Bookmark and Share


CLC Bio

CLC Assembly Cell is a high-performance computing solution for read mapping and de novo assembling of Next Generation Sequencing data. The command-line interface of CLC Assembly Cell enables the functionalities to be easily included in scripts and other Next Generation Sequencing work-flows.

CLC Assembly Cell is utilizing SIMD instructions to parallelize and accelerate the assembly algorithms, making the program the fastest Next Generation Sequencing assembler at present.

This is a white paper on the de novo assembler in CLC Assembly Cell 3.0. Note that the same algorithm is used by CLC Genomics Workbench and CLC Genomics Server, so except for the performance benchmarks (speed and memory), this white paper applies to these products as well after next release.

The assembler is designed to combine a mix of data from Illumina, 454, SOLiD and Sanger sequencing, both as single and as paired-end reads. For paired-end data, different insert sizes can be combined in the same assembly. Note that in the current version, paired-end SOLiD data can be used in a post-processing step to link contigs together.

This white paper consists of three parts: The first part explains how the assembler works, and the next focuses on large genome assembly of a human data set, where we have compared our assembler with the ABySS assembler which is also capable of assembling human genome-size data sets [Simpson et al., 2009]. The third part reports the results of a smaller bacterial data set where focus is on quality and where we have compared the quality and performance of our own assembly with one of the popular open source assembly algorithms, Velvet [Zerbino and Birney, 2008].
