  • Mapping E.coli PE reads

    Hi,

    I have to align PE reads from the E.coli DH10B sequencing. I am thinking of using BWA sampe. Could E.coli being a circular genome cause any alignment issues? If yes, then I don't see an option to for aln/sampe that could handle this. So is anybody aware of doing PE E.coli data alignment using BWA? Also, are there any better alignment tools for E.coli PE data?

    Any help regarding this would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Praful

    Yes, because BWA won't map any reads over the origin, and could potentially reject paired reads spanning the origin.

      You will have some reads that cross from the "end" of your genome to the origin of your genome, and those won't map. And you will have reads where one read is at the "end", and the other is after the origin, and these will be marked as improperly paired.

      But it's not going to make much difference in the grand scheme of things.

        Thanks a lot for your prompt replies. This makes sense and this is what I thought might happen, but just wasn't sure. So based on this, I would assume BWA aln/sampe should still work for most of the reads and I'll just have a slightly bigger number of improperly paired reads.

        Thanks again guys.

          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...
