    Hey guys!

    I was wondering how should I interpret the quality scores coming from results from 454 GS jr cDNA (not paired end) reads?

    I mean, I read a lot that its prhed-like. But as the sequencing techniques from sanger and pyrosequencing are so different from each other, I wonder if its true.

    Could you help me find literature about these quality scores thing and to be able to understand by analyzing my data if the quality of my reads are good or not?

    Im a little confuse about that and havent got to any conclusions so far.

    Thanks a lot!

    Well they are using the same PHRED logarithmic scoring scale (probability of error), but given the typical error in Roche 454 reads is in homopolymer repeat number this doesn't map well to a per-base quality score.

      Thanks maubp

      So the quality valeu coming with the sff file or the one from the fasta format (fna), the .qual are based on PHRED logarithmic scale?

        The SFF file contains the called bases (which can be turned into a FASTA file) and the associated per-base PHRED quality scores (which can be turned into a QUAL file).

        It might help to change the title of your thread from 'Bioinformatics' to something like 'Interpreting Roche 454 per-base quality scores'.

          Thanks a lot maubp!

          Ill do that. But you, pretty much, have already helped me to solve my doubt!

            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...
