    Do you have a reference transcriptome?
    If so, does it contain alternatively spliced sequences?

      we have reference transcriptome 。 but one gene one transcript sequence

      there are no alternative splicing information

        I wonder if Solexa reads, say 50bp can identify alternative splicing when you don't have a reference genome. How can we tell the alignment software to map the reads so we can find splice variant?

        Alternative splicing has been reported using 454 reads. The longer reads is probably an advantage. Anyone has done similar work using Solexa reads?

          Tophat does a really nice job mapping splice junctions without a set of known splice sites. It works very well with short Solexa reads, though I presume it requires a certain degree of read depth.

            i have reads.fq (5 000 000 reads RNA-seq) genome.fa

            when i use bowtie align the reads, it aligns 4 200 000 reads.

            but when i use tophat align the reads, the output file accepted_hits.sam only contains 1 900 000 reads. junctions.bed file is blank.

              Gmorse from the french genoscope (PMID: 19087247). It works with short reads and does not require any reference transcriptome, as explained here. Maybe limited for very complex and dense transcriptomes though (human/mouse/etc).
              With a reference transcriptome, if you want to assign a quantity to each splicing variant I only know about this flux capacitor. Maybe not fully stable yet. I'm sure a lot of similar projects are in progress.
              (Disclaimer: I personally know these people, they are friends of mine -but don't worry, contrary to me they still work in academic research).

              Much more is expected to come from the RGASP project. I'd suggest to keep an eye on this.
              Then, there are commercial products that claim to address "alternative splicing", but I am curious about what they really 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...
