Sequencing Status 2017-18

Below is a live spreadsheet showing the status of SEA-PHAGES sequencing samples for the 2017-18 academic year. Generally, only samples in the "priority" queue will be listed, and it may take a few days after receipt of samples for them to appear.

2016 Sequencing Information

Sequencing time of year approaches once again!

Remember that each SEA-PHAGES school can have two genomes sequenced per in silico section they are teaching this year. We recommend that you send at least one backup sample in case one of your samples fails our QC. Please indicate any order of preference, if you have one ...

2015 Sequencing Information

The leaves are changing and the weather is cooling, which can only mean: time to sequence some phage genomes!

A quick reminder that each SEA-PHAGES school can have two genomes sequenced per in silico section they are teaching this year. We recommend that you send at least one backup sample in case one of your ...

Sequencing at NC State

For anyone looking for some extra phage genome sequencing, the Genomics Sciences Laboratory at NC State is offering affordable Illumina runs again this year.  Jenn Schaff is the contact person there, and she says:

For those of you who didn't qualify for the free sequencing and still have extra phages to sequence before ...

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 ...

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 ...
