  • UCSC Bin indexing system

    Does anyone know how exactly works the Bin indexing system used in the UCSC genome browser?
    I found just few words in this webpage http://genomewiki.ucsc.edu/index.php...ndexing_system
    but i'm not familiar with java and I'm not able to translate this code in perl.
    Any suggestion?
    Thanks in advance

    Perl Implementation: No guarantees ...

    sub binFromRangeStandard
    {
    my $zstart;
    my $zend;
    my $i;
    my $startBin;
    my $endBin;
    my $retval;
    my @binOffsets = (512+64+8+1, 64+8+1, 8+1, 1, 0);

    $zstart = $_[0];
    $zend = $_[1];
    $startBin = $zstart;
    $endBin = $zend-1;
    $startBin = $startBin >> 17;
    $endBin = $endBin >> 17;
    for ($i=0; $i<5; $i = $i + 1){
    if ($startBin == $endBin){
    $retval = $binOffsets[$i] + $startBin ;
    return $retval;
    }

    $startBin = $startBin >> 3;
    $endBin = $endBin >> 3;
    }
    $retval = 0;
    return $retval;
    }

        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...
