I have only 454 reads (300~400b) and three paired end 454 library of insert size 3kb,8kb and 20kb. Trying to assemble a genome of expected size 50-100MB. My question is - how should I specify three separate longpaired libray in velvet. Should I just consider them as three shortpaired libraries or may be combination of shortpaired and longpaired ? Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks, Ranjit

I already tried generating assembly using Newbler but was looking if other open source programs performs better. What other programs are suggested in this case apart from Newbler? Thanks.

AllPaths and the Celera assembler are appropriate for long reads. There is a new variant of Celera called MSR-CA, but I can't offer any experience with it. AllPaths should work good if you have long and short insert libraries, but Newbler should give you a good result for that genome size.

I would not use Velvet for this data set; Newbler or AllPaths are more appropriate and will likely give you a better result. Is there a reason you are not using Newbler (Roche's gsAssembler)?

yes, just use Newbler.
