  • Easy question from a noobie

    Can someone please explain figure 2 "Scatterplots of Technical Replicates of Brain Sample" in the paper below?
    The x and y axis are both labeled the same "Number of aligned reads (log scale), Brain".

    Is your question "what is a technical replicate"?

      I think I figured it out.
      According to the paper, they performed 5 technical replicates on a brain sample.
      That means they performed the RNA-seq library build and sequencing on the same brain sample five times.

      So for example, if gene X has the following number of reads that aligned
      Replicate 1, 152 reads aligned
      Replicate 2, 127 reads aligned
      Replicate 3, 98 reads aligned
      Replicate 4, 173 reads aligned
      Replicate 5, 111 reads aligned

      The following 20 points are plotted on the graph
      (152,127),(152,98),(152,173),(152,111)
      (127,152),(127,98),(127,173),(127,111)
      (173,152),(173,127),(173,98),(173,111)
      (111,152),(111,127),(111,98),(111,173)
      (98,152),(98,127),(98,173),(98,111)

      So basically this graph shows that the fewer reads that map to a gene, the less reliable the data.

        It looks like a 2D graph, so I'm reasonably certain it's comparing only two of the replicates. Each point represents the read counts for a single gene in the two replicates.

          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
