  • Hi-C User Pipeline (HiCUP)

    Hi,

    I’m a bioinformatician at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, UK and I’ve just produced a pipeline (named HiCUP) for processing Hi-C sequence data.

    The pipeline, comprising several Perl scripts, receives FASTQ data which is then de-multiplexed (if required), mapped against a reference genome and filtered to remove frequently encountered experimental artefacts. The pipeline produces paired read files in SAM/BAM format, each read pair corresponding to a putative Hi-C di-tag.

    Although the pipeline should be considered a work-in-progress (we expect to add more functionality and modify various components of the pipeline, such as how HiCUP classifies putative Hi-C artefacts), it has been used successfully by us when analysing Hi-C data.

    We would welcome any thoughts you may have on HiCUP, whether they concern its strengths, weaknesses, how it could be improved or future augmentations.

    The project’s homepage is: http://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/projects/hicup

    I look forward to hearing from you and contributing to the Next-Generation Sequencing Community.

    Kindest regards,
    Steven Wingett

    For those who also didn't know what this is :

    "
    Hi-C, developed from 3C, identifies long-range genomic interactions. The Hi-C protocol involves formaldehyde-fixing cells to create DNA-protein bonds that cross-link interacting DNA loci. The DNA is then digested and ligated to generate a library of products that were spatially close to each other in the nucleus.

      Whoa! That's pretty interesting. I'm at Brabaham for EagleGenomics Symposium today... do you think we can meet and chat about it?

        Hi,

        I am based in the Forum. Today is fine to discuss (morning is better).

          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...
