    VarScan shift in counting of bases!

    I'm using VarScan.v2.2.11.

    The problem I'm reporting here is something about VarScan's parameter --min-avg-qual when using command mpileup2indel. I'm setting it to be default, which is 15.

    In the input pileup file:
    CHROMOSOME_I 221154 g 42 .,,,,,,,+1c,+1c,,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c.+1C,+1c.+1C,+1c,+1c,+1c,+1c.+1C.+1C,+1c,+1c,+1c.+1C,+1c,+1c,+1c.+1C.+1C.+1C.+1C.+1C 1C?C<FFFFDHJEAJDJIJG<JJG'GIDIJBD9JDDDG?FDF

    The corresponding output:
    CHROMOSOME_I 221154 G +C */+C:41:8:34:45.33%:4.4044E-13 Pass:11:30:10:24:1E0 0 1 0 0 */+C:41:8:34:45.33%:4.4044E-13

    The red colored part of the input won't get passed the --min-avg-qual filteration, because it's base quality is less than 15. The prblem is that in the output, we see the Cov=41 (which is correct), Reads1=8 (which is also correct), but Reads2=34 (which should be 33, because one of the insertion has mapping quality less than 15).

    Anyone has a similar problem like me? Could anyone help? I think this might be a bug of VarScan.

    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...
