  • Is ddRAD sequencing strand-specific?

    Hi all,

    I have ddRAD libraries that I am trying to build an assembly-based reference, but I am not sure if ddRADseq sequencing reads are strand-specific. Are they? I cannot find this information anywhere! Upon assembling my libraries, the data isn't looking strand specific.

    Does anybody knows the answer/

    Many thanks!

    Yes they are. Library is from bottom strand.

      Many thanks!
      Could you be more specific? I really want to understand how it works. Why do I have forward/reverse reads perfectly aligned? Does it means they likely are from different genome regions?

        Which enzymes did you use? Is it paired-end sequencing? What fragment size?

        If you allow short fragments and did paired-end sequencing, then you might get overlapping reads and you'll see this for short fragments but not longer ones. Perfectly aligned doesn't sound like overlapping to different degrees, though. Are the reads aligning all the way from the first to last base? With your alignment parameters would you see partial overlaps?

        I think ddRAD has some artifacts from exonucleases acting on overhangs, allowing newly-blunt adapters to ligate to random fragments. You would see some sporadic, random forward and reverse reads from that, but low level. Give us an example of this with how many forward and how many reverse and the sequences, that might yield a clue.

          As shown in attached diagram from ddRAD paper https://docs.google.com/document/d/1.../edit?hl=en_US
          priming PCR starts from rare cutter terminal bottom strand (Illumina's P5 adapter) and top strand will not be amplified and does not have complete P5 and P7 adapters necessary for sequencing.

            The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
            by seqadmin



            Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

            Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
            by seqadmin


            New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

            A major leap in the field has
