Wtdbg2 is a de novo sequence assembler for long noisy reads produced by PacBio or Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT). 

Quick Start

Test Data

  • Test data for wtdbg2 can be found directly from Discovery Environment in the Data window under Community Data -> iplantcollaborative -> example_data -> wtdbg2 

Input File(s)

Use SRR8506728.fastq as the input file. These are PacBio data.

Parameters Used in App

When the app is run in the Discovery Environment, use the following parameters with the above input file(s) to get the output provided in the next section below.

  • Under 'presets' choose PacBio RSII as the sequencing technology
  • Under 'output' set the file output prefix to wtdbg_SRR8506728_output
  • All other parameters should be left as default

Output File(s)

This analysis will generate the following output files: 


<prefix>.ctg.lay.gz is used by the 'wtpoa-cns' app to build a consensus

Additional assembly statistics (such as number of contigs and N50) can be found in the standard error file: logs/condor_stderr-0
