    Invalid VCF files from Lifescope - allele "-"

    I found some problematic VCF files created by Lifescope software. The sequencing was done on Solid 5500. These VCFs cannot be merged with other VCF files. The variants in these files are all indels. When I run vcf-validator it seems the "-" in the allele is the problem. Some vcf-validator output:

    [lifescope@scyld small.indel]$ perl -I/home/lifescope/bin/vcftools_0.1.11/perl /home/lifescope/bin/vcftools_0.1.11/bin/vcf-validator 37_1_3/2013_08_13_exome_high.gff3.vcf
    Warning: The file is not sorted, for example chr12:53690189 comes after chr12:53690191
    chr12:53690189 .. Could not parse the allele(s) [-]
    [lifescope@scyld small.indel]$ perl -I/home/lifescope/bin/vcftools_0.1.11/perl /home/lifescope/bin/vcftools_0.1.11/bin/vcf-validator 37_1_4/2013_08_13_exome_high.gff3.vcf
    Warning: The file is not sorted, for example chr11:108100105 comes after chr11:108100112
    chr11:108100105 .. Expected combination of A,C,G,T,N for REF, got [-], the offending chars were [-]

    Does any other Lifescope user have the same problem? Is there an easy way to fix this? Thank you in advance!

    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 on Modified Bases...

    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...
