  • How to estimate genetic variation in a population with RNASeq data?

    Hello,

    I'd like to estimate the amount of diversity in an insect population so that we can determine the number of individuals to include in a future re-sequencing study. I am only looking for an estimate so we can design the future experiment with enough samples to accurately assess genetic diversity at several locations.

    I have a genome and RNAseq data from 35 individuals from one location as part of another project. I'd like to use the RNAseq data to estimate diversity.

    This paper assembles a transcriptome from each sampled individual, maps to a reference transcriptome made from pooling the individuals, and then calls SNPs-

    https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/...111/jipb.12287

    Presumably I could map the reads from each of my 35 bugs to my reference genome and do SNP calling. Does this sound legit? Do you have any advice on how I would arrive at an estimate for the number of individuals needed from each location based on the variation in this population?

    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...
