  • sequence filtering

    Hi

    This may be a silly question, but I am wondering if there are some tools available to do broad category filtering? I am dealing with ancient DNA that comes from excavated samples and thus is heavily contaminated with all kind of bacteria. With all precautions against contamination the majority of reads are still of the bacterial origin from all kind of bacteria imaginable, which makes futile attempts to set up narrow filters. Is there a better way to filter at least most of bacterial sequences?

    You can see if DeconSeq will help:

      you can also see rNA, it is mainly an aligner but does also a good job on sequence filtering (you need to construct a database of sequences to be filtered) and quality trimming


      As the manual is not that good you can ask help to the developer, delfabbroATappliedgenomics.org

      Vezzi F., Del Fabbro C., Tomescu A.I., and Policriti A. rNA: a Fast and Accurate Short Reads Numerical Aligner. Bioinformatics, Vol.28, Issue 1, January 2012

      or



      I personally used to filter out a set of bacterial sequences and it worked pretty well

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
