  • Miseq Fastq Format: Forward and Reverse Issue

    I am doing some experiment with BowTie. Now, I want to do experiment with 150 bps read length. So, I download it from here. There, it is written 1 forward and 151 reverse. Can anybody help me what does this forward and reverse means ?

    It is showing you the base at the 5' position. The '1' means that the forward strand begins at position 1. 5' to 3'. The '151' means that the reverse strand ends at position 151 once again reading 5' to 3'.

    BTW: There is no need to repeat your question in multiple threads.

    BTW#2. The miSeq puts out 151 base pair reads not 150 bp reads. That is just the way it is.

      means first end (1-151) is taken from DNA's forward stand and second one (152-302) taken from DNA's reverse strand ? Means are they reverse complement ? Sorry, I have very little idea about Bioinformatics.

        SRA shows the two reads per pair in what I consider to be a strange manner since SRA combines both reads together despite that there should be a insert distance (positive or negative) between the pairs. But given that view, then yes, 1-151 would be 5' to 3' then it goes in reverse from 3' to 5'.

        When you eventually download the reads in fastq or fasta format the 'forward' reads will be 5' to 3' bases 1 to 151. The 'reverse' reads should be 5' to 3' bases 151 to 1. Although, when I download the fastq I am getting 150 bases for the forward and 152 bases for the reverse. So using the SRA tools might be a better choice for data manipulation.

          The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
          by seqadmin



          Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

          Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
          by seqadmin


          New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

          A major leap in the field has
