  • Low frequency indel detection

    Hi,
    Can anyone recommend software particularly suited for very low frequency indel detection as might be applied to ultra-deep targeted sequencing (UDT-seq) datasets where coverage exceeds 1000x? Choices seem limited. Am getting the impression scripting around samtools mpileup output might be the most robust strategy. Any thoughts anyone?

    Many thanks.

    I am also interested in indel annotation, if you find any good solutions please post.

      I agree .. you would need to parse the pileup file and then use your own thresholds. Perhaps use the simple common filters and start with that indel list.

      For annotation, seattleSEQ (http://snp.gs.washington.edu/SeattleSeqAnnotation/) is an option and so is TREAT (shameless self plug - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22088845)

        ohh well, here is another option, though am not sure if variants includes indels

          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...
