  • Can anyone make sense of the quality scores in the qseq.txt files?

    I'm running the Illumina pipeline 1.3.2, and I noticed that the quality scores in the qseq.txt file appear to be the same as the alignment-normalized scores produced by Eland/Gerald, which are totally erroneous for reads without a good reference genome.

    It seems like Gerald is going back and injecting these quality scores into the Bustard output rather than just putting them in the Gerald output. Why would they do this? Is there any way to get the quality scores in the new (Phred) format without producing the legacy prb files and converting them?

    As of 1.3.2, Bustard does the qs calibration according to an internal table. You can do custom calibration from the command line, so if you want uncalibrated scores in the new format you could create probably create a custom custom calibration table that leaves the values unchanged. I do not know the format of the calibration table off the top of my head, but it is somewhere in the distribution.

      So calibration no longer depends on the reference genome?

      If so, this makes a lot of sense, as it doesn't make the (often false) assumption that all failed alignments are due to sequencing error.

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

        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...
