BlobTools2 is a re-implementation of BlobTools designed around a more modular data structure to allow greater flexibility to incorporate additional datatypes. BlobTools2 datasets can be visualised interactively in the BlobToolKit Viewer. To get started with BlobTools2, visit github.com/blobtoolkit/blobtools2 for information on dependencies and to get the code. BlobTools2 datasets are comprised of a number of files representing […]
BlobToolKit is a set of tools to allow interactive exploration, assessment and filtering of genomic datasets. The main tools are BlobTools2, a re-implementation of BobTools to support additional features and The BlobToolKit Viewer, which allows interactive exploration of datasets. This series of blog posts aims to introduce many of the features in BlobToolKit and provide […]
We will be presenting a poster describing BlobToolKit at Genome Science 2018 For more details, either browse this site or take a look at the project code on GitHub.
Visualise assemblies using the new BlobToolKit viewer (blobtoolkit.genomehubs.org/view/, github.com/blobtoolkit/viewer): Example using data obtained from ENA for the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas (AFTI01). Processed using a BlobToolKit Snakemake pipeline available at github.com/blobtoolkit/insdc-pipeline.

The BlobToolKit project has been funded by the BBSRC for 3 years to develop the latest iteration of the Blobology/Blobtools genome assembly QC, visualisation and filtering tools. The project is a collaboration between the research groups of Mark Blaxter at the University of Edinburgh and Guy Cochrane at EMBL-EBI to develop software tools and protocols […]
