  • bwa masked sequence?

    Does anyone know if BWA is handling masked sequences properly? I'm having a problem where I find some reads aligned to genome gaps. I have tried converting the N's to X's, but still encountering the same problem.

    This is a known issue. Ambiguous bases are converted to random sequences. If you use bwa-short, the XN tag tells you how many "N" in the alignment. If you use bwasw, you do not get this information, but you may find such hits by checking you reference genome.

    The chance of a good alignment arising from random hits is vanishingly small. Just ignore those hits.

      thanks

      Thanks!

      I just want to add that the N's in my sequence are not for ambigious bases, they represent a sequence gap of unknown size.. So basically its a long stretch [ATGC]+NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN[ATGC]+

        The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
        by seqadmin



        Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

        Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
        by seqadmin


        New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

        A major leap in the field has
