  • On/off target rate for whole exome data

    Hi all,

    I've some human exome data, which I've aligned with bowtie2 as bwa doesn't work (see this post).

    Using samtools flagstat I can see ~98% of reads map to the genome. However, only about 60% of those are on-target with 40% off-target. That doesn't seem great.

    What kind of on/off-target rates do others see?

    Actually, that's about what the people selling the kits promise, so you are fine.

      Don't worry - perfectly acceptable figures there.

          @chris -- would you care to share your command line for bowtie2? I'm running into a slightly worse issue, performance wise, and am curious how you're doing it!

            Sure, its:

            Code:
            bowtie2 --threads 4 -q --sensitive --end-to-end --phred33 -x /db/bowtie2/Hsapiens68 -1 fastq_file1 -2 fastq_file1 -S out.sam

              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...

              by seqadmin
              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
