  • ELAND and circular genomes?

    Hi all,

    OK, so I'm pretty sure this is a silly question, but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer!

    When using ELAND to map reads against a circular genome, how does it deal with those reads at the very end? In other words, if your genome is 3,000,000 bp long, what happens to a 30 bp read that aligns to the region 2,999,998 - 28 ?

    Thanks!

    Actually I don't know the exact answer but I think that ELAN takes in input a reference sequence and it consider it as string with an end and a beginning. So if there is a read spanning between the end and the beginning I think it will not find it, the only possibility is the existence of an option for circular genomes.

    If There is no this option you can put at the end of your circular genome a piece long as a read taken from the beginning. In this way you will find the reads in which you are interested. Doing this thing you have only to pay attention at the repeated reads that you can generate.

      I seem to have found the answer to this for paired end options in eland_extended:

      --circular

      This causes pickBestPair to treat each chromosome as circular and not
      linear, enabling it to detect valid pairings that “wrap around” when the two
      alignments are mapped onto the linear representation of the chromosome.

      still hunting about what it does with regular reads!

        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...
