    That's great advice! I will try straight away!
    thanks a lot!

    The new bra-mem algorithm for longer reads should be able to report local alignments (i.e, not requiring the whole read to match the reference). If not
    you can try bowtie2 with the --local option and look for reads with partial alignments in the beginning / end of your reference.

    I probably did not underline my problem properly, Sorry about that. I have a piece of genome (my reference sequence) and I would like to undercover the sequence on the 5' and 3' portion of that sequence. If I manage to blast a 50 bp read on the 5' position than the remaining 100bp of the read will be flanking my reference genome. Let's say I would like to do an "in silico" genome walking. In order to do so I have to bast all the reads which will take a lot of time. Actually considering only a small portion of the reference genome may help me to solve the time issue probably.
    thanks a lot for your help anyway!

    I'm not saying BLAST everything. Take a couple of reads that have this weird behavior and blast them. The goal is simply to see whether the unmapped portion matches anything else in the genome or if its something completely different.

    Thanks for the advice. Actually I have 31 gbites reads (a resequencing project). for this reason I would like to avoid using blast because of speed issues. Any other ideas with BW aligners?
    cheers

    Take some of those reads, blast them and see what comes up. If the first 100 bp matches a known target, then you know your answer. Also check for contamination by adapter sequences.

    Partially mapped reads

    Hi there,
    I am mapping illumina reads on a reference by using the bwa tool. I was wondering whether there is an option or an alternative aligner that can allow me to highlight partially mapped reads at the begin and end of the reference sequence. Say for example I have 150 bp reads and the first 50 bp of my reference genome align with the last 50 bases of one of my read. In this case it is reasonable to think the the remaining 100 base on the read lie on the 5' position of the reference genome (I guess!)
    your help is really appreciated!

    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...

    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...
