  • sequencing reads simulation

    Hi,



    Can anyone explain the results of wgsim of me? What does the character 'R', 'M', 'Y' stands for in the third column? What is the meaning of the second column? In addition, if I have two haplotypes of a individual (with konwn heterozygous and homozygous variants), how can simulate the sequencing reads of this individual?



    Thanks

    See this thread for an answer to your first question.

    If you really wanted to simulate reads I guess you could do this by selecting a region around the SNP and making a mutated read from the reference genome. I guess the question would be why you would want to do this?

      I have been using wgsim for some time in a testing context. However, I don't allow it to simulate reference-relative mutations. I do this with mutatrix, a population genome simulator which simultaneously simulates SNPs and indels. (Also, it generates VNTR indels based on sequence context). An example of the test setup is here:

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
