Answer: A: What Happened To Mvirdb?
... I realise that this is a very old post - but for anyone who ends up here for the same reason I did (circa April 2018). It looks like the website for MvirDB has been down for a while.

Comment: C: Bioinformatician/Statistical Geneticist at Cytox Ltd (UK)
... You'll notice that most of these are 'desirable' not 'essential' it's the formatting of my post I'm afraid. I don't think the essential criteria are at all excessive for a bioinformatics post. Most employers will consider interviewing someone who ticks 'most' of the boxes. The post is not working in ...

Comment: C: Somatic Mutation Identification without Paired Normal Sample
... You don't have paired samples and there may have been sample mix ups that you can't figure out? Proceed with analysing this data with caution, regardless of the unmatched samples - you just don't know what you're dealing with and that's a dangerous place to be starting an analysis, unsure of your in ...

Comment: C: Why we need 100X coverage to get a high-quality assembly?
... Take a look at the 10X Chromium. If you're doing a diploid, vertebrate, then you can probably get pretty good results with this plus some standard Illumina libraries. I think PacBio, unless you've got the budget and a Sequel, is going to be prohibitively expensive. Don't discount things like DISCOVA ...
