    DMRcaller Minimum Reads per Cytosine

    Hello! I'm a tech who's starting a Ph.D. in August, so I am very new to bioinformatics. I'm wondering if anyone has some guidance on choosing coverage thresholds when calling DMRs.

    I am using DMRcaller on WGBS data. I have 3 biological replicates per condition, which I am pooling and analyzing together.

    In the documentation/example code, I notice they set the min. reads per cytosine = 4. Is this number arbitrary? Or is there something in the data that informs you of what the minimum number of reads should be?

    In other methods, I've seen the default set equal to 10, or 3, etc. and I can't find a clear answer on where these numbers are coming from. All I've found is a figure that shows that the higher you set the threshold, the fewer DMRs are identified, which is common sense.

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

    Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
    by seqadmin


    Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
