  • How to visualise alignments with different read lengths?

    Hi,

    Does anyone know of a tool that can be used to view alignments of short reads to a reference when the short reads are of different lengths? We have 36bp and 51bp Illumina paired end read datasets and using the LookSeq tool it has not been possible to view the reads of different length at the same time. Anone any suggestions for an alternative visualisation tool? Thanks.

    and good old clustalw

    are where I'd start.

      There is a basic text viewer in SAMtools as well.

        You might want to try Broad Institute's Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV) (http://www.broadinstitute.org/igv/). Among other things, it enables the visualization of the mapped reads with the reference genome sequence and a feature table. No complicated installation steps to take.

          You can also do this with SeqMonk. Just select the genome you aligned against, point it at your sorted or export file from Eland and off you go.

              A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
              by seqadmin


              ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

              Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

              The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
