  • FastQC results for 16s reads

    Hi

    I have some FastQC results I have generated from Illumina 16s sequences. I have attached an example of the results for one of the demultiplexed fastq files, but they all look simillar.

    I think that the per base quality score looks ok but I am not sure about the other statistics. I have only worked with WGS data before and I haven't been able to find any information on if these are normal.

    Any information/links to resources on if these look ok would be really helpful.

    Thanks
    Michelle

    I think they look OK. The thing with 16S reads is that they are amplicons, and that all the
    sequences are very similar.

    I had seen a document on the website of an Italian company named IGATech some months ago,
    which showed typical FastQC plots for 16S data, and improved plots with their method,
    which I think involved some type of heterogeneity spacers, but I can't find it now.

      Hi Mastal

      Thanks for the reply. I thought that might be the case, I'm just trying to understand the data better.

      I managed to find a bit of a tutorial about this too.

        The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
        by seqadmin



        Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

        Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
        by seqadmin


        New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
