    My guess is that the information will be considered for mapping reads to the GTF file if supplied with -G . In that dataset, read pairs should be concordant with transcript strand. i,e., if -library-type first-strand was indicated, and transcript A is at coods. X to Y, + strand, read of the mate pair should map to the reverse-complement of the 3' end of TRANSCRIPT A, and READ 2 of the mate pair should map to the 5' end, in the same orientation as the transcript sequence.

    However, if no GTF is supplied with -G, or in the subsequent stage of mapping reads that didn't map to the transcriptome, now to the whole genome, then TopHat should make no use of library-type information, right?

    Thanks,

  • Does tophat use the library-type information for mapping, or just for the XS flag?

    Hi all, quick question:

    When I specify library-type to TopHat, i.e., first-strand, second-strand, unstranded, TopHat appends a value + or - to the XS:A tag, which is useful for subsequent analyses, such as annotation.

    However, does this information influence the "mappability" of reads, or is this unaffected?

    --library-type

    TopHat will treat the reads as strand specific. Every read alignment will have an XS attribute tag. Consider supplying library type options below to select the correct RNA-seq protocol.

    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...
