  • Differentiate DNA-Seq / RNA-Seq and Exome sequencing data

    Hi there,

    If you have situation that you have files from three sequencing platforms ( DNA-Seq / RNA-Seq and exome sequencing ) and do not know which belongs to which, can you distinguish them in some way?

    I have an idea, but wanted to check what you guys think?

    - Map some reads from each technology to one chromosome ( to save time and computing power )

    - The reads that map everywhere, exons + introns = DNA-Seq reads

    - Reads that map to exons +- 50bp = Exome seq reads

    - Reads which have very less or zero coverage in intronic regions = RNA-Seq reads.

    What do you guys think? Is there any other way? ( Other than files sizes )

    Thanks a ton,

    Seems reasonable. If you have a known chromosome. :-)

      What do you mean by a known chromosome?

        Try working with, oh, say data from a Whale. :-)

        In some ways, if you are making the thought experiment of "how do I differentiate between different unlabeled data sets" then you might as well make it even more interesting -- try to differentiate between data that is both unlabeled in platform and species.

        Given data from a human sample, then, yes your approach seems reasonable.

          How about if we make bed files for the alignments of exome and whole genome?

          Would we be able to differentiate them using the UCSC browser ? I believe the tracks for the two should look very different.

          What do you guys think ?

            You could better differentiate between Exome and RNA-seq reads by watching the mean insert size, since aligning RNA-seq reads that span exons would lead to long insert sizes and/or split-reads. If the RNA-seq data is stranded than it's even easier.

            I guess the easiest method for visualization is IGV (http://www.broadinstitute.org/igv/)

            So take a subset from those reads, align them and watch them in IGV. (the only problem you might run into is a very shallow coverage which doesn't give you a nice picture in every gene...)

              Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
              by seqadmin


              The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

              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...
