  • Genome coverage

    I used bowtie to create sam files that are loaded in a tablet program for chloroplast assembly by tags. I guess there is an overall coverage of about 80%. But is there a way to let the program calculate the precise coverage by the tags in comparison to the chloroplast sequence?

    You may check BEDTools. There's a coverageBed utility. Of course, you must convert sam to bed first!

      Are you using Linux or Windows. I can help you!

        how to use coverageBed

        How to use coverageBed to caculate the coverage of reads to reference?
        I have changed sam to bam and then to bed.
        I've got only one sam files after aln reads to reference.
        Why does the coveragebed programme need to bed files a and b like this:
        coverageBed [OPTIONS] -a <bed/gff/vcf> -b <bed/gff/vcf>
        If this method does not work.
        Is there any other software or script to caculate assembled contigs' coverage to reference?

        the assemble programme is not the popular ones

          Maybe this thread may help you.

            But I want this kind of results:

            I want to caculate the rate, for example:
            the length of reference is 10000bp
            the length of reads mapped reagion is 2000bp in all
            and the coverage rate is 20%

              Read the documentation for BEDtools, it gives an example of how to do this exactly. Very nice PDF on their website!

              It doesn't require the first input to be a bed file, either. It can be a BAM file. See the -abam option.

                A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
                by seqadmin

                ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

                Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

                The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
