I am a Biochemist that is unfamiliar with bioinformatic tools and new to academia as a whole.
I am currently using ILLUMINA PE data, which I trimmed (Trimmomatic), corrected (Rcorrector) and assembled (SPAdes). I am now interested in using the genetic sequences from my contigs to identify the original organism (I know it is a bacterium).
I have tried using BLASTn (with default parameters) on one of my contigs. I let the query run for 30 minutes before stopping, nothing came of it.
What would be the best way to go about doing this?
