  • how to determine a snp ?

    hi, i resequenced a mutated bacteria genome, and want to detect the mutation information. at a position, i found half of the reads mapped are different from the reference, and half are the same . so some software reported it as snp, and some not. how to determine it as a SNP. how did this happened.
    thanks.

    It could be a heterozygous SNP. Also errors can/will always occur (in sequencing, mapping), you might want to look at quality values as well.

      Hi,

      if you encounter an interesting SNP in your analysis, the quickest way to determine if it's real or not would be to confirm it with an independant method like PCR + Sanger ...

        If you have a very small number of SNPs, validate them by eye. Display the alignments at the SNP position and see if the call makes sense. Ultimately of course validate via sanger.

          yes, i did it by eye through Tablet. i found some reads aligned are A and some aligned are G. if all these reads are unique, how should i determinate? thaks

            Post here a screenshot of the alignments (tablet) for one of the snps and then we can discuss. The original SAM alignments for the SNP would help also.

              Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
              by seqadmin



              While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
