  • FastQC interpretation


    I would love some advice on my linked image below. I was using FastQC to look at the data from a recent MiSeq run. All my isolates are flagged at the "Per base sequence content". I am to understand that a 'good' graph is expected to look like all the bases are of similar % throughout. The DNA sequenced is from Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and I am seeing a high GC content (as expected) and much lower AT content.

    Any advice or explanation would be greatly helpful!

    This type of pattern is observed in a couple of cases. One is random priming used in RNAseq libraries and other is where you are making libraries that include transposases. The bias at the beginning of the reads is likely due to the Nextera transposase sequence bias (similar to bias seen in "random priming") .

      A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
      by seqadmin

      ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

      Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
      by seqadmin
      Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

      The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
