  • why different read coverage in the same gene in one sample

    Hi, All,

    I am using IGV to view my bam result. And I am confused why there are different read coverage in the same gene. I mean, ideally, the read coverage should be even across the gene. But in some cases (for example, see the two attachments), I found the read coverage is significant difference across gene. Could anyone help explain this? Thanks!

    This is normal. Firstly, "random hexamer priming" is actually not that random. That leads to a lot of the waviness that you see. Secondly, there are also 5' to 3' biases, caused be the library construction step and RNA degradation. There are also mapability differences across the length of a gene (which can interact with the SNPs that are present in samples).

        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...
