  • BWA alignment for paired end reads

    hi,

    i am using BWA to align 115bp paired end solexa reads. I have the following doubts :-

    1. Does BWA take the min and max insert sizes for paired end reads ?
    2. What is maximum number of indels calculated by BWA ? Does keeping the indel as 3 will affect the performance ?
    3. How do i get the unaligned reads seperately after using the 'sampe' command? The reads which are not paired and the reads which didn't map at all.
    4. I plan to use samtools for SNP and indel detection. Can i get the reference as well as the consensus coordinate in the pile up format.

    Any help for the above is appreciated.
    Thanks

    1. bwa infers it
    2. hard to say for paired-end reads. could be up to 20bp in some cases
    3. see sam format
    4. it depends on what you exactly want.

      Thanks, for your immediate reply.

      For (2.) can we restrict the indels with the parameters -o and -e in the 'aln' step? What is the ideal value for these parameters given 115bp reads ?

      4. i want the consensus coordinate also in the pileup format with the other fields. How to get it using samtools ?

        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...
