Comment: C: How to recover a 16S rRNA gene from genome reads?
... I should add, I've also started looking into [phyloFlash][1] for this, which can use SortMeRNA 'under the hood'. Seems very nice. [1]: https://github.com/HRGV/phyloFlash ...

Comment: C: De novo assembly programm
... Hey, if it works well enough for your needs then I think that's fine. We've had SPAdes killed for using too much memory on a number of genome assemblies in the 200-800MB range (we have a 1TB assembly node and access to a 3TB if needed), and the assemblies that do finish take forever and are less id ...

Comment: C: De novo assembly programm
... Note that SPAdes is primarily developed for small genomes; it tends to use a lot of memory, and I have found it impossible to use for many assemblies above 200-300Mb. Have you tried [Platanus][1]? I believe this worked for past butterfly genomes and can handle highly heterozygous genomes. You c ...

Comment: C: De novo assembly programm
... I would add to this: have you checked the overall kmer abundance distribution, to see whether the sample is heterozygous, coverage is as expected, etc? Jellyfish + GenomeScope are useful here. Similarly preQC worked well for us in identifying problematic assemblies, which can do a bit of the above ...

Answer: A: BUSCO producing different genome completeness
... This is expected; different taxonomic groups would have different single-copy orthologs (with more refined taxonomic groups having more SCOs compared to broader groups). Also, I know several nematode genomes have lower than expected BUSCO scores, which may be due to issues with assembly, etc. ...

Answer: A: Problem with MACS2 results
... The error is a hint. A certain number of reliable peaks have to be called for the shift model building step (I think this is ~1-10k). For a smaller genome like *M. xanthus* this may be an issue as I don't think it's directly adjustable, but you can try adjusting the MFOLD parameter to get more pea ...
