    Hi
    1. If you are going with a standard tool like GATK they have specifications and a resource bundle: http://gatkforums.broadinstitute.org...lic-ftp-server from where you can download the reference genome.
    2. to get basic stats-- i suggest samtools flagstat, idxstats. You can also check Picard tools and GATK .
    3. yes, to know more about what flagstat output means, you can refer: http://samtools.sourceforge.net/SAM1.pdf

    Basic statistics from alignment using bwa

    Hi everyone,

    I have a couple of questions that I am sure most of you are already good at. I searched the forum but haven't seen similar questions, but if anyone can lead me to a similar solved thread with the same issue, I will be grateful.

    My first question stems from this: I downloaded the reference hg19 and concatenated the chr*.fa files. Do I need to concatenate only chr1-22, chr X,Y,M then ignore the chrUn_gl*.fa and chr*_random.fa? Or should I concatenate all the chr files regardless.
    I read somewhere that when concatenating the files should be arranged in order. Is that necessary, and if so how does one arrange the unknown and random chr files in order?

    My other question is, I am trying to retrieve some basic statistics from my alignment that I did using bwa. I need to get basic stats eg number of reads mapped, average coverage etc

    Which tools should I use to get such statistical info?

    I am a newbie in this area and I am not sure I am doing this right. I used samtools flagstat and I got this:

    308846 + 0 in total (QC-passed reads + QC-failed reads)
    0 + 0 duplicates
    270177 + 0 mapped (87.48%:nan%)
    0 + 0 paired in sequencing
    0 + 0 read1
    0 + 0 read2
    0 + 0 properly paired (nan%:nan%)
    0 + 0 with itself and mate mapped
    0 + 0 singletons (nan%:nan%)
    0 + 0 with mate mapped to a different chr
    0 + 0 with mate mapped to a different chr (mapQ>=5)

    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...
