  • mpileup and homozygous snps

    Hi all,

    I'm new to SNP-calling with mpileup/bcftools. After my first analysis it seems to me, that I cannot properly call homozygous SNPs...

    whole command (samtools-0.1.16):
    samtools mpileup -uf my.fa my.bam | bcftools view -vcg -

    1. output of mpileup (here in pileup-format, looks homozygous to me -> G?!):
    chrX 2779570 A 41 GGGGGGGGGGGGGGgGgGGGGGGGGGgGGgGGGGgGGGGGg I<FHIIBEB?FIIIIEGGHIIIGHGDGIHDBIGIH=IIIH#

    2. output of bcftools (looks heterozygous to me):
    chrX 2779570 . A G 99 . DP=41;AF1=0.5;CI95=0.5,0.5;DP4=0,0,35,5;MQ=60 PL:GT:GQ 255,120,255:0/1:99

    Can anyone tell me the reason for this behaviour?
    Thank you.

    Have you solved this problem? I also have this problem, and I'm very interested in the result.

      This is surely a heterozygos SNP site from A to G

        I think this is heterozygous SNP, you can see this values 0/1:99

          Strange. One suggestion...try

          samtools mpileup -Buf my.fa my.bam | bcftools view -vcg
          The -B turns off BAQ recalculation..I've gotten strange results when it was on, which were repaired by turning it off.

            You could try a different SNP calling program like freebayes or gatk.

              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.”

              A major leap in the field has
