  • Problems about the Trimmomatic on bisulfite sequencing data sets

    Hi, All,

    I have some problems about using Trimmomatic on bisulfite sequencing data sets.


    For example, I downloaded the raw data of human methylome from Lister et al. 2009 Nature (SRR019072.sra), and got the FASTQ file by the sratoolkit.
    Next, I tried the Trimmomatic to trim the adaptors and other low-quality sequences.

    This is the command I used.
    java -classpath trimmomatic-0.20.jar org.usadellab.trimmomatic.TrimmomaticSE -threads 10 -phred64 SRR019072.fastq SRR019072.trim.fq ILLUMINACLIP:remove_adaptor_PCR.fa:2:40:15 LEADING:2 TRAILING:2 MINLEN:60

    Because they were using the single-end adaptors, the remove_adaptor_PCR.fa file is as follows:
    >Prefix_PCR_PRIMER_SEQUENCE/1
    AATGATACGGCGACCACCGAGATCTACACTCTTTCCCTACACGACGCTCTTCCGATCT
    >Prefix_PCR_PRIMER_SEQUENCE/2
    CAAGCAGAAGACGGCATACGAGCTCTTCCGATCT
    >ADAPTOR_SEQUENCE_B
    ACACTCTTTCCCTACACGACGCTCTTCCGATCT
    >ADAPTOR_SEQUENCE_A
    GATCGGAAGAGCTCGTATGCCGTCTTCTGCTTG

    This is the running results:
    ILLUMINACLIP: Using 1 prefix pairs, 2 forward/reverse sequences, 0 forward only sequences, 0 reverse only sequences
    Input Reads: 13074151 Surviving: 4569673 (34.95%) Dropped: 8504478 (65.05%)
    TrimmomaticSE: Completed successfully


    It seems that 65% of reads were dropped.
    Moreover, even 65% reads were dropped, the trimmed results still did not pass the FastQC, especially for the "Per base sequence content" and "Kmer Content".


    Therefore, I need your helps to figure out which parameter I used was not proper? Or the remove_adaptor_PCR.fa is not correct?
    Do we need specific parameters for bisulfite sequencing data?


    Many thanks and best regards,
    Jerry
