  • DP4 field & VCF parsing/SNP analysis

    Hi

    In the samtools manual, for the DP4 field it states that the:

    "...sum can be smaller than DP because low-quality bases are not counted."

    I wonder, what is the cut-off for this? How low does the quality of a base need to be and what determines whether a base is low-quality?

    Also, I've seen various tools described but my second question is this: in the parsing of VCF files to compare the specific depth at SNP positions shared between different samples are custom scripts usually used or does it largely depend on the application (as to whether the software is already available)?

    I ask this as I am yet to see something specific to my needs but I also suppose it is quite a specific question. Is there a list or paper which you could direct me to which describes various SNP analysis programs and their applications? If this doesn't exist then I can try describe what I am trying to do but I think my main problem is simply not knowing what is out there.

    Hope you can help

    Thanks

    Jon

    One answer was provided here:


    "the mpileup -Q option, which by default is 13."

    However, I am not sure this is completely correct as I have data with apparently good reads, but the total of DP4 is much less than DP.

    Did you ever answer this question?

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
