  • mpileup format

    I am using samtools mpileup to analyze my data, and have several lines like this:

    chr1 14976 G 5 <<><> HHHHH
    chr1 14977 C 5 <<><> HHHHH
    chr1 14978 C 5 <<><> HHHHH
    chr1 14979 T 5 <<><> HHHHH
    chr1 14980 C 5 <<><> HHHHH
    chr1 14981 A 5 <<><> HHHHH
    chr1 14982 T 5 <<><> HHHHH
    chr1 14983 G 5 <<><> HHHHH
    chr1 14984 A 5 <<><> HHHHH


    What are those ">" "<" or "*" mean in the reads base column? According to the description of the format (http://samtools.sourceforge.net/pileup.shtml), they should be only in the base qualities columns.

    samtools manual says they are " ’>’ or ’<’ for a reference skip".

        I am sorry to kick this thread alive but did someone figure out what "*" means in the reads base column? I cannot find any information on the homepage of Samtools.

          The deleted bases will be presented as ‘*’ in the following lines.

            Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
            by seqadmin




            The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

            Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
            by seqadmin


            In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
