  • Odd results with Sickle FASTQ trimming

    I was experimenting with Sickle (windowed adaptive trimming tool for FASTQ files using quality). It seems like a useful tool. I used it on some 2x150 Illumina data in paired-end mode and then aligned to mouse genome (mm9) using BWA. Everything seemed to work fine. When I later did recalibration with GATK, I looked at the produced quality charts and noticed something odd. Without trimming, the two reads look very similar in terms of quality. With sickle trimming, there is a very noticeable difference between the two reads. This seems very odd to me. Why would this happen?

    Here is an example for one sample:

    Advanced Tools Transforming the Field of Cytogenomics
    by seqadmin


    At the intersection of cytogenetics and genomics lies the exciting field of cytogenomics. It focuses on studying chromosomes at a molecular scale, involving techniques that analyze either the whole genome or particular DNA sequences to examine variations in structure and behavior at the chromosomal or subchromosomal level. By integrating cytogenetic techniques with genomic analysis, researchers can effectively investigate chromosomal abnormalities related to diseases, particularly...

    How RNA-Seq is Transforming Cancer Studies
    by seqadmin



    Cancer research has been transformed through numerous molecular techniques, with RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) playing a crucial role in understanding the complexity of the disease. Maša Ivin, Ph.D., Scientific Writer at Lexogen, and Yvonne Goepel Ph.D., Product Manager at Lexogen, remarked that “The high-throughput nature of RNA-seq allows for rapid profiling and deep exploration of the transcriptome.” They emphasized its indispensable role in cancer research, aiding in biomarker...
