  • strand bias variant call

    We found some heterzygous calls. When we checked in IGV, the reads with reference base are balanced between plus strand and minus strand, however, the reads with alternative base are only mapped to minus strand or plus strand. In which way the reads with alternative base can be so biased? The mapping quality are OK for these reads.

    It could be alternative allele only be sequenced on one strand but for reference allele, both strand are sequenced. Is it possible like this if the experiment is not designed so?

    Or, these alternative alleles are artifacts. But what could be the reasons to generate these artifacts?

    Thanks for any feedback/discussion.

        Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
        by seqadmin


        Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

        Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
        by seqadmin


        Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
