  • BWA mapping quality scores?

    Does anyone know if BWA gives ambiguous reads a mapping quality score of 0? I believe I have read somewhere that it does, but I can't find this anywhere in the BWA documentation. (Actually, the only documentation I've found for BWA are the man page and the FAQ page. Is there more somewhere?) The FAQ page does mention that for paired-end reads, one read may have a mapping quality of 0 if it is ambiguous, and the other end can be non-zero. But are all ambiguous reads assigned a mapping quality of 0? Thanks!

    That is correct. If a read maps to two or more places with equal score it is given a mapping quality of zero. Depending on the input options, it will output a random mapping or all mappings.

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
