  • Bayesian Inference in SAMtools/BCFtools

    Hello:
    I am using BWA + SAMtools/BCFtools to reference map assemble illumina reads and call SNPs in a bacterial genome respectively. I use the command:
    Code:
    bcftools view -bvcg input.bcf > output.bcf
    which is supposed to filter the initial pileup and call the variant positions using bayesian inference similar to the one used in MAQ.

    I'm not an expert in statistics, but I would like to know what are the priors and posteriors calculated. Thanks very much!

        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...
