  • ChIPSeq: Unusual narrow peaks

    HI,
    I am looking at some ChIPSeq data that is rather unusual. The forward and reverse reads form deep thin stacks. Their width is mostly just above the read length of 75 bp. The 'peaks' (pseudo-peaks?) are distributed well across the mouse genome. Have any of you see this? What could be the reason? This experiment is investigating transcription factor binding ....


    Thanks!
    Jarus

    Hm. Sounds to me like a very low complexity library - I have seen one or two of those, but can only speculate about the reason.
    Perhaps very low amounts of input dna with too many PCR cycles?

      Sounds like a low complexity issue but it would be helpful if you posted some images of what the data looks like.

          Yes, thats what PCR artifacts from low complexity libraries look like.

            Thank you all. I think its time to get back to re-doing experiment. I guess, Data analysis-wise there is not much to do...

              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...
