I've been following you since I started working on NGS, but now I need more help :(
I'm trying to assembly long reads derived from 454 and I want to change the MAXKMERLENGTH from 31 to 231 but I got the common message:
Velvet can't handle k-mers as long as 231! We'll stick to 31 if you don't mind.
I know you have been talked about but I can't fix the problem anyway.
If I run :
make 'MAXKMERLENGTH=231' velvetg velveth
on my velvet folder, there are plenty of question and It does not change the make file.
I tried then to change directly the make file as suggested, but still nothing.
If I run:
I got /usr/bin/velvetg but I don't find the file in this folder!!
I tried to change the length with 219, then back to 231 and If I run the velvet I still get the 219.
I hope I explained my self, I'm still a newbie in bioinfomatic..
