converting pacbio


I'm wondering if is possible to convert Pacbio 16S sequences in order to process then with illumina reads? or if is it possible somehow compare both types of sequences.

Hi Alexander,

Sure, ya' can. The challenge will be that the Pacbio reads will be longer, so you have different regions.

Most (all?) amplicon analysis pipelines are predicated on sequencing the same region, so this is a huge challenge!

Try searching the forums for "multiple regions" to find threads like this that gives some practical places to start.

I would simply treat these as two different data sets.
