  • Bowtie2 limit local alignment to 5' end

    Hi all,

    I'm using bowtie2 to do the local alignment. However, we are thinking the 5' end will have enough good sequencing quality, while 3' end may not. We are trying to use local alignment option to map the reads. However, I found the result will allow soft trimming on both 5' and 3' end. Could I only limit it to only allow trimming on 3' end but not 5' end? I didn't find any option in bowtie2.

    Do anyone have suggestions for me to do this?

    Best, Weilong

    Hi Weilong,

    did you find a way around your problem? I am facing a similar question, so I push your post up again. Is it possible for --local alignments to just trim the 3' end?

    Would be happy for any advise! Thanks in advance.

      Hey KatrinSameith,

      Try using FASTXTOOLKIT, with this you can specifically trim.

        Hi KatrinSameith,

        Not yet. I haven't find any way to get around the problem only using bowtie2. Maybe other tools could be used to get around this. Such as Vishnuamaram's suggestion.

          Dear vishnuamaram and Weilong,

          Thank you for your replies. I will try fastx_clipper or cutadapt to trim one-sided first (I am dealing with adaptor sequences) and then run --end-to-end alignments.

          --local alignments was my first idea, because I thought I would circumvent the trimming step. But never mind, it makes sense and it seems to be required.

          Thanks again & have a nice day,
          Katrin

            plz try Prinseq-lite and Tag cleaner to trim ends of your reads

              Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
              by seqadmin




              The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

              Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
              by seqadmin


              Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
