  • IGV visualization pattern for RNA-Seq mapping

    Hello everyone,

    When I look at RNA-Seq mapping in IGV, why reads are aligned to the opposite strand?

    In the example below, the gene is annotated in the reverse strand (which I understand as a synonym of negative/minus strand), but the reads are aligned to the positive strand (foward/plus strand). It's because is cDNA? (I used Group alignments by first-in-pair strand and Color alignments by first-of-pair strand options in IGV)


    Sorry for the silly question, but I could not figured out it by myself...

    Many thanks.

    Which library prep did you use to get this data? Many of the preps now are strand specific. Did you generate this data yourself or get it from somewhere else?

      It's polyA capture, paired-end (2x100bp) and strand-specific (dUTP) RNA-Seq. But the sequencing was performed by the BGI company, which sequencing protocol (DNBseq platform) differs a little bit from Illumina, and I'm not completely sure how this affects the analysis.

        I have done this with my data and your settings, and see that you can see the data in two blocks. By moving the mouse wheel down, I can see the other block (it is separated as NEGATIVE and POSITIVE.). I used dUTP and Illumina, though.
        I your reads setting are set to Extended or squished mode (not collapsed), it is likely occupying a lot of your screen
        Am I right?

          Hello AntonioRFranco,

          I'm using the Squished mode and the majority of reads are aligned to positive strand (you can see the only reads aligned to minus strand at the top of the image).

          I don't know how to count reads in IGV, but I counted them with htseq-count and there were 6661 reads for this gene in this sample (in fact, maybe more than this because I filtered by reads aligned in proper pairs before counting).

          Maybe could you share your visualization?

            Have you found the solution?

              I also want to know whether you found out the solution or not. If you have found it then please share it with us. And if you are looking for a site online where you can read reviews for an essay writing service, then here is the https://letsgradeit.com/review/superiorpapers/ link to that website where you can find them. I also use that website to find the best essay writer.

                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...

                by seqadmin
                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
