  • Samtools filtering

    Hi

    I am trying to filter for those reads which are mapped but where the mate is unmapped.

    I tried:

    Code:
    bsub "source samtools-0.1.18; samtools view -bt -f 8 F3H.fa.fai L2557F3H.sam > L2557F3H.bam"
    This doesn't appear to have worked correctly.

    I understand the bitwise flag codes to an extent but to be honest I've just been using the "plain english" picard tool (http://picard.sourceforge.net/explain-flags.html). I don't think I understand how to specify for these codes using the minus "-f" parameter.

    Thanks

    Jon

    Throw a -F 4 in there too, or you will get unmapped reads whose mate also did not map.

      Thanks. Very useful, I wasn't aware you could combine -F and -f

        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...

        Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
        by seqadmin


        Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
