  • deletion mapping problem

    Hello,

    I'm mapping 454 reads against a reference genome using bwa and then create sorted bam files using Samtools.

    However, most my samples do have only one copy of a 9bp motif, whereas the reference has two. In some reads of my sequence data the motif will be followed by gaps and in some the gaps will be followed by the motif and in the end the consensus will call it as a tandem repeat.

    I tried to use GATK for realignment, but it didn't work. Has anyone used GATK for this purpose successfully? Or does anyone have other ideas how to solve the problem? others than de-novo assembly?

    I'm building up a fully automized pipeline so I use command line based software and scripts.

    Help would be highly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Stefan

    "Another important note: because reads produced from the 454 technology inherently contain false indels, the realigner will not currently work with them (or with reads from similar technologies)."

      Thanks. But do you have another idea?

      Cheers,

        If the genome you are mapping to is a bacterium or lower eukaryote (30 to 100 MB), give MIRA a try. I wrote the mapping routines to behave consistently for exactly these cases.

          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...
