3' versus 5' overhangs in sequencing data

3' versus 5' overhangs in sequencing data

Recently, Eric Miller at NC State asked me about phage genome ends, and how a 3' overhang (sticky end) would look in an assembled genome compared to how a 5' overhang would look.  So I made a picture!  Hopefully it explains how you might diagnose either of these cases from sequencing reads, and ...

Free Sequencing: We need your DNA!

Well, not YOUR DNA...

If you've been phage hunting with a host that's IN the order Actinomycetales, but is NOT Mycobacterium smegmatis mc2 155, the Hatfull lab would like to sequence your phages' genomes free of charge.  So that means if you have DNA for phages found on Rhodococcus, Arthrobacter, Streptomyces ...

Archiving 2014-15

We are shipping tubes for archiving on November 5, 2014.  The number of tubes you will receive will depend on the number of students enrolled in your classes that you enter on seaphages.org.  Please do so by October 29, 2014.  Once you have entered your student numbers and shipping address, we ...

Count on me: Entering Institutional Data into seaphages.org

Hopefully, everyone in the SEA-PHAGES community is well into the swing of the new semester.  Now is a great time to start collecting some institution-specific data and aggregating it into program-wide numbers.  In the next couple of days, an email will be sent to SEA-PHAGES faculty inviting them to begin using seaphages.org ...

Sequencing Deadlines and Information

This year, all "official" (HHMI-supported) SEA-PHAGES sequencing will take place at the University of Pittsburgh.  Because schools on the quarter system begin their semesters later, we have two separate deadlines for DNA submission this year.

Deadline for Semester Schools

Please send your genomic DNA so that it arrives in Pittsburgh by November 21, 2014 ...
