I am new to NGS field and would appreciate help with a project. I receives fastq read file from a metagenome project(3 different species, virus) from Ion Torrent. What are the steps for proceeding with this data and which assembler gives best results when used for metagenomics.
My understanding is that the following are the 3 main steps to analyze this dataset
- BLAST the contigs
- Annotation and Functional analysis
