The three most critical parameters to optimize are the hash size kthe expected coverage eand the coverage cutoff c. What next PartitionFinder2 provides you with all the information necessary to carry out a genneious phylogenetic analysis, e.

The protocol in a nutshell: This tutorial might help if you are unsure about any particular aspect of your analysis, or you have never thought about partitioning schemes before.

Genome assembly is a very difficult computational problem, made more difficult because many genomes contain large numbers of identical sequences, known as repeats. The output files are the ones you should use for assembly.

To help you out with downstream analyses, you’ll notice that lower down in the file the partitioning scheme is written in a range of formats suitable for different programs. Make sure you’ve followed the installation instructions in the manual, installing Python 2.

Click ‘OK’, then save the file in the “beetles” folder on the desktop as ‘cognato. Examine the draft contigs and assessment of the assembly quality.

If you are in a situation where you don’t know where the codon positions are, it’s important that you figure this out and provide the information to PartitionFinder2 in the datablocks section.


The known separation distance is actually a distribution with a mean and standard deviation as not all original fragments are of the same length. These files contain most of the information and will therefore allow me to map the majority of the genome to the closely related species that I’m interested in. Some things to remember about the contigs you have just produced: Things to look for in the output: Failing to define codon positions in protein coding genes can lead to very poor estimates of phylogenetic trees.

That will make PartitionFinder2 delete all the stored results and start again. For instance there are various pre-defined lists of models, which are described in the manual.

De novo Genome Assembly for Illumina Data

See Trimmomatic website for detailed instructions. Use FastQC report to decide whether this step is warranted and what quality value to use. These repeats can be thousands of nucleotides long, and some occur in thtorial of different locations, especially in the large genomes of plants and animals. This can save you from writing out long model lists. There is a genome in unoriented and unorder scaffolds.

Minimum read length Once all trimming steps are complete, this function makes sure that the reads are still longer than this value. The zebrafish genome was downloaded from UCSC and the other species’ sequence was generated using Illumina.

A quality threshold value of is a good starting point. This includes some metric data about the draft contigs n50, maximum length, number of contigs etc as well as the estimates of the insert lengths for each paired end data set.

PartitionFinder tutorial

Right now, our alignment is in nexus format, so we need to convert it. What happens with your contigs genekous is determined by what you need them for: The manual contains detailed instructions on defining data blocks.


Examine the quality of your raw read files. If they have then just use the contigs of interest.

You can download the file we’ll be using in this tutorial geneous clicking here. The gemeious can be stored as text in a Fasta file or with their qualities as a FastQ file. The most appropriate value for this parameter will depend on the FastQC report, specifically the length of the high quality section of the Per Base Sequence Quality graph.

For two closely related species, is there an easy way to align genome assemblies?

The ‘ alignment ‘ option tells PartitionFinder2 the name of the alignment, so here we’ll set this as follows: If you have a computer with lots of processors, or time to wait, you might want to try this out. Hi everyone, I have a near-chromosome level assembly of a mammal genome that I would like to att Raw read sequences can be stored in a variety of formats. The Velvet Optimiser log file contains information about all of the assemblies ran in the optimisation process.

Below that, you should see something a bit like this note that results may differ slightly on different systems, because PhyML works a little different on Linux, Mac and Windows: There is a lot of information stored here, descriptions of what it all is can be found at the end of the PartitionFinder2 manual.

For example, if you include an extra model e.
