  • htseq-count: reads with letter "N"

    Hi,
    I've just found that a read starting with letter "N" in my sam file was marked as "no_feature" by htseq-count. I hacked that read by changing the "N" to the reference letter and also modifying the affected fields such as FLAG and MD, and got htseq-count worked with that read. My question is: does htseq-count discard any reads with "N"s in anywhere, or just those starting with "N"s? It looks like that in that read all other letters of the sequence were same with the reference, so I would rather keep that read.
    I raised this question because by using FastQC I've found that many of my reads have "N"s in their tails (3'?). Will htseq-count output better counts if I trim those tails?

    Thanks,
    Sylvia

    Please ignore my initial post. The real reason why my read is not mapped is not the "N", it's because in the FLAG field it's marked as "0x10 SEQ being reverse complemented". When I change this single bit to 0, the read got counted. Does any body have any idea?

      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...
