  • Doubts about GATK "raw data processing" step for SOliD exome data

    Hello,


    I just received SOLiD 75bp fragment (SE) exome data. I haven't previosly worked with SOLiD data and I'm not sure the suitable way to handle them for a further GATK based variant detection. In concrete I have doubts about:

    - filtering PCR duplicated

    I'm undecided to filter or not them using picard markduplicates. Being SingleEnd data I'm inclined not to do it to avoid lose "true" reads (not duplicates) at expense of generate "dirty" variant calls. What's you opinion?.

    - base recalibration

    Due to special caracteristics of colorspace read seems to be unnecessary to make base recalibration. I checked "1000 Genomes" paper (http://www.nature.com/nature/journal...ture09534.html) where based recalibration was avoided for SOLiD data. By other hand, in GATK documentation (http://www.broadinstitute.org/gsa/wi..._recalibration) "PrimerRoundCovariate" covariate is described as "The primer round for this base (only meaningful for SOLiD reads).". I'm confused and do not know if the recalibration of bases is a recommended step for SOLiD.
    Any advice?

    I would appreciate your help.


    Thank you

    Actually I also have similar doubts (though working with paired data). Do you have any progress or hints on this topic?

      Unfortunately, don't. But I think If you've PairEnd data you could safetly remove PCR duplicates. However, I neved did it for SOLiD.

      About "base reclaibration" I'm going to try it. I'm waiting for finishing alignment step to try it. I'll let you know then.

      By other hand, I'm using BFAST to align to colospace but it is extremely slow. What alignerare you using?

        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...
