  • 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?

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
