-  * Decide on a final assembly from working assemblers. +  * Apply SOAPdenovo scaffolding and gap filling to Discovar scaffolds 
-  * RNA Assembly+  * Merge assemblies 
 +  * Decide on a final assembly from working assemblers: that's going to be a moving target as we add more data and analyses. We may have to freeze one for annotation work, but there'​s not much point to doing this before we've finished all the scaffolding we can do, as our scaffolds are still quite small (about 12k for the scaffold N50 as of 2015 June 8)
 +  * RNAseq: 
 +    * Using RNAseq data to test existing scaffolding 
 +    * Transcriptome assembly 
 +    * Using RNASeq data for scaffolding
   * Annotations   * Annotations
-  * Heterozygosity +  * Heterozygosity: assuming that Ed's initial result (which is not yet on the wiki) holds up, that the collected slug was almost purely homozygous, then we have the interesting question whether the UCSC slug population is so inbred that it is nearly clonal. 
-  * Phylogeny +  * Phylogeny: not clear what we can add here—there aren't enough mollusk genomes around for phylogenetic analysis to say much.  What meaningful questions might we answer? 
-  * Non-slug DNA in reads +  * Non-slug DNA in reads: part of annotation is going to be identifying and removing contaminants.

-  * Use of old data (2010 and 2011 classes+    * Scaffolding and gap filling on highly repetitive contigs to build full repeat consensus (and variants) 
-  * Potentially adapt Discovar contigs ​for SOAPdenovo ​scaffolding.+    * Annotating repeats (viral and bacterial contaminants,​ mitochondrion,​ transposons,​ … ) 
 +  * Mitochondrion ​assembly 
 +    * PCR to close gaps 
 +    * studying graph of contig neighbors to try to determine order without PCR 
 +  * Use of old data (2010 and 2011 classes There is not really much data there, and the quality is not very high, so there may not be much point in trying to use it.  Perhaps mapping it could find some variation—we might like to know whether the UCSC slug population is nearly clonal. 
 + 
 + 
 +Longer term: we'll need to decide whether we need more data, particularly ​for scaffolding. ​ Will Ed's lab be continuing to develop a new mate-pair library procedure, which could give us new libraries to work with?  Will the MinION deliver higher-throughput long reads this year, and can we get a run of long DNA through the MinION?
