Hi everyone,

I am planning to design primers (to run Sanger sequencing) for assessment of a genome de novo assembly. These primers can be chosen arbitrary, but I prefer to have some meaning of sequenced results, therefore I run BUSCO eukaryote (~400 single-copy orthologs) on the de novo assembly genome. BUSCO run revealed ~60% Complete Single-Copy BUSCOs, but I wonder how could I get to know the name and description of those orthologs in eukaryote set (there are only alignments and numbered code for matches in results)? I really appreciated any help.

Thank you very much in advance.

Also very interested in this, have you found an answer?

Sadly not yet, but I could still obtain those ortholog's fasta sequences in BUSCO results and Blast them against Refseq database to get best hit accession ID, then simply refer list of these IDs for descriptive titles (I used Batch Entrez

If you load the FASTA sequence into IGV you can look at the entire genome alongside the genes they code for. From there you can search the name and function of each of these genes.
