    This software package from folks at Babraham can help: http://www.bioinformatics.babraham.a.../fastq_screen/
    Hi GenoMax,

    For the fastq_screen I'm guessing it's necessary to know which adaptors or vectors I think might be involved prior to using it. Is it correct?

    If so, are there default adapters/vectors available for certain Illumina platforms or do I need to contact the people who ran the analysis for the list?

    I see. Well, I did BLAST the reads (a handful) which were unmapped. They mapped to human with a significant e-value. But I'm working on a worm. I'm not sure what to make out of the BLAST results.

    The 10% could still be usable if you have good enrichment.

    If the ChIP has succeeded, typically no. But I think it's not uncommon to get poor enrichment leading to things like adapter contamination as mentioned above. Or perhaps the sequencing was suboptimal so you have poor quality at the end of the reads and Bowtie has trouble mapping with certain parameters.
    When I ran the FastQC analysis, I checked all those adaptor contamination. I used trim-galore too to remove poor quality reads and default Illumina adaptors. Still, it gives me poor results. Hence, the bemusement.

    I was wondering what might be the cause. The difference between treatment and control seem to be too much!

    @Zinky: I already did the quality check. I don't think it is adaptor contamination!

    So normally there should not be any significant changes in mapping statistics between control and treatment right?

    Yes, it sounds way too low.

  • Is it normal to hav very low mapping for TREATMENT file in Chip-seq?

    Hi,

    I'm working on chip-seq and it looks like I have an issue. I'm not sure if it's normal for a chip-seq analysis.

    I have a control and treatment file (in fastq format), which I mapped it using Bowtie2. The problem here is, while the input file has 90% mapped, treatment has only 10% mapped (mapping statistics by samtools flagstat option). Is it something I should be worried about?

    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...
