Running purge_dups on a hybrid assembly (optical mapping + reads)

Hello,

I have a hybrid assembly I obtained with Pacbio assembly and an optical map from Bionano. This assembly still remains rather heterozygous, that's what I would like to run pourge_dups to remove haplotigs on this assembly.

I can run this tool on the primary assembly I obtained with my Pacbio hifi reads , but is this tool suitable with a hybrid assembly (Pacbio hifi reads + BioNano optical map) ?

BioNano optical maps do not add/alter sequence in your assembly if I remember correctly, so I don't see any harm/issues with running it on the hybrid assembly.

Thanks for the tip, I'll try that.

I ran purge_dups on my hybrid assembly. I guess it is still rather heterozygous (1.9Gb while I expect 1.3Gb genome size) but purge_dups can't find any haplotigs. The dups.bed file is empty and so, the purged assembly is the same than my initial assembly. Is that possible you think?

yes, that is possible. Likely depends on the criteria used by purge_dups, check the manual/help to see what it uses.

You might need to tweak the parameter settings a little.
