Details for Velvet (hide)

About:Sequence assembler for very short reads
Added:12/13/2011 2:46:33 PM

Maximum kmer length: 150 (Compilation parameter: MAXKMERLENGTH=150 LONGSEQUENCES=1 OPENMP=1)

To take advantage of multithreading, set the environment variables OMP_NUM_THREADS and OMP_THREAD_LIMIT. Velvet will then use up to OMP_NUM_THREADS + 1 or OMP_THREAD_LIMIT threads. Using the commands before you start Velvet run.


For Bacterial genomes, the general servers with 16G RAM is sufficient. For large genomes, it is recommended to run on large memory nodes (e.g. cbsulm01).
Make sure you trim the adapter and low quality sequence before you run assembly. Example command(change the minimum length setting MINLEN):


java -jar /programs/trimmomatic/trimmomatic-0.32.jar PE -phred33 paired_end_reads_1.fastq paired_end_reads_2.fastq kept_paired_end_reads_1.fastq kept_paired_end_reads_2.fastq unpaired_1.fastq unpaired_2.fastq ILLUMINACLIP:/programs/trimmomatic/adapters/TruSeq3-PE.

Merge two files of PE run into one:



 /programs/velvet_1.2.10/contrib/shuffleSequences_fasta/ kept_paired_end_reads_1.fastq kept_paired_end_reads_2.fastq merged.fastq

Run Velvet optimizer:



/programs/velvet_1.2.10/contrib/VelvetOptimiser-2.2.5/ -s 55 -e 95 -x 5 -t 8 -d OUTPUT_dir -f '-shortPaired -fastq merged.fastq'

If you have larger kmer length (>150 and less than 255):



/programs/velvet_1.2.10_kmer250/contrib/VelvetOptimiser-2.2.5/ -s 55 -e 95 -x 5 -t 8 -d OUTPUT_dir -f '-shortPaired -fastq merged.fastq'
