  • Tophat RNASeq mapping - right reads map and left reads map 50% less

    Hi!
    I am trying to map RNA Seq (chick) with Tophat2 and I am getting low overall mapping rates (~30%). In the align_summary.txt file generated by Tophat2 - it appears that my right reads are mapping at over 90% whereas the left reads are mapping at 30%. This is happening to all but one sample.
    Has anyone ever encountered this or know how to resolve this?

    This is the command I used:

    tophat -p 8 -G gene_model.gtf -o Sample1 genome4 Sample1_1.fastq.gz Sample1_2.fastq.gz > Sample1.log 2>&1 &

    Thanks in advance

    Did you run fastQC (or any other QC software) on these reads?

      Yes I ran FastQC. The Per base sequence quality is in the green zone for all of them. In some the right reads are slightly lower than the left, but not much.

      The only other thing I notice with FastQC is that 'Sequence Duplication Levels' are very high (>=55.7%) . I don't know whether this could influence mapping though.

      Thanks.

        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...
