    Thanks so much for writing this incredibly useful program

    I was struggling with the problem of trimming and removing low quality reads whilst maintaining read pairs - trim galore makes this straightforward and fast!

  • Quality-, adapter- and RRBS-trimming with Trim Galore!

    We have just updated Trim Galore! so that is now has built-in paired-end functionality which means that trimmed files don't need to be validated separately any more, as well as a few more things that make it more convenient to use.

    As there hasn't been any dedicated thread yet, here are a few more details: Trim Galore! is a wrapper script to automate quality and adapter trimming, with some added functionality to remove biased methylation positions for MspI digested RRBS sequence files (for directional, non-directional (or paired-end) sequencing). It's main features are:

    - For adapter trimming, Trim Galore! uses the first 13 bp of Illumina standard adapters ('AGATCGGAAGAGC') by default (suitable for both ends of paired-end libraries), but accepts other adapter sequence, too
    - For MspI-digested RRBS libraries, Trim Galore! performs quality and adapter trimming in two subsequent steps. This allows it to remove 2 additional bases that contain a cytosine which was artificially introduced in the end-repair step during the library preparation
    - For any kind of FastQ file other than MspI-digested RRBS, Trim Galore! can perform single-pass adapter- and quality trimming
    - The Phred quality of basecalls and the stringency for adapter removal can be specified individually
    - Trim Galore! can remove sequences if they become too short during the trimming process. For paired-end files Trim Galore! removes entire sequence pairs if one (or both) of the two reads became shorter than the set length cutoff. Reads of a read-pair that are longer than a given threshold but for which the partner read has become too short can optionally be written out to single-end files. This ensures that the information of a read pair is not lost entirely if only one read is of good quality
    - Trim Galore! can trim paired-end files by 1 additional bp from the 3' end of all reads to avoid problems with invalid alignments with Bowtie 1
    - Trim Galore! accepts and produces standard or gzip compressed FastQ files
    - FastQC can be run on the resulting output files once trimming has completed (optional)

    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...

    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...
