  • Number of Mapped reads

    Hi all,

    I want to count the total number of mapped reads onto the reference genome.
    I have .sai and .sam files. Which of these files can be used to do so?
    I have low computing power, thus currently using only bwa and samtools. Please suggest me some tool to count number of mapped/unmapped reads after I align all the reads to reference genome.

    Best,

    Hello ninad,

    A quick way to do this is to first convert your sam file to a bam file. You can do this using samtools (check their documentation).

    After that you can use the following command to see how many of your total reads mapped to the reference:

    samtools flagstat bam_file

    Hope this helps.

      Hi ninad,

      to check the no. of mapped reads, you first sort your bam file,followed by index using samtools index

      then you can use.

      samtools flagstat

      &
      samtools idxstats on your sortedbam file.

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

        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...
