  • Do I need remome the reads aligned >1 times and how?

    Hi every one,
    I am trying to identify the up-regulated or down-regulated genes by a compound. Here is the results of alignments for one control with different parameters.

    $~/my_rnaseq_dat$ ~/bin/bowtie2 -p 8 --sensitive -x Amhg45 -U ~/sequencing_data2013/CK_2.fastq -S CK_2.sam
    56874766 reads; of these:
    56874766 (100.00%) were unpaired; of these:
    9752857 (17.15%) aligned 0 times
    43225883 (76.00%) aligned exactly 1 time
    3896026 (6.85%) aligned >1 times
    82.85% overall alignment rate

    $~/my_rnaseq_dat$ ~/bin/bowtie2 -p 8 --very-sensitive -x Amhg45 -U ~/sequencing_data2013/CK_2.fastq -S ~/sequencing_data2013/CK_2.sam
    56874766 reads; of these:
    56874766 (100.00%) were unpaired; of these:
    9695758 (17.05%) aligned 0 times
    43182043 (75.92%) aligned exactly 1 time
    3996965 (7.03%) aligned >1 times
    82.95% overall alignment rate

    Althoug I changed the parameter, I could not inrease the percent of the reads aligned exactly 1 time and decrease the percent of the reads aligned >1 times.

    Can I used them for the following analysis? If they could not be used, how can I remove it from the sam file?

    Thanks a lot?

    Best bet is to not use any reads with a low MAPQ (mapping quality). This will include multiply aligned reads. samtools gives you a way to filter out low MAPQ reads.

      There's no reason to think that reads which map multiply are bad. Genes share common domains. You could try Cufflinks, which can use these reads to improve transcript estimates.

        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...
