  • most commonly used alignment viewers

    Hi there,

    I am trying to get a feel for the mosy commonly used/ well regarded alignment viewers out there. I have had a read of the sticky thread outlining what options are available, but Im interested in what people think are well regarded in terms of:

    ease of use and well supported
    which require local install/ only webtool available
    can you navigate in at the genome level (ie. with Affymetrix IGB viewer)
    which are more suitable for short/long read data - or one that caters for both
    Do they take standard output from commonly used ailgners (velvet/bowtie/maq) - or is there much file manipulation before the viewer can be used.

    Are people using SAMtools much?

    Thanks,

    Natalie

    I have been using the Integrated Genomics Viewer for my short read work.

    See http://www.broadinstitute.org/igv/index.html

    Heng Li also did a good review of viewers at http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Users/lh3/NGSalnview.shtml


    IGV works nicely with BED, BAM and GFF files. It does the job for most of my tasks.

      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...
