  • *.asc files from capillary sequencing

    I've got a number of *.asc files from some capillary seqeuencing, in which the README proclaims the following format. If anyone has experience with this format, I'd really like to understand how the fragment size relates to the number of nucleotides in the allele. Any input or speculations welcome! I have not been able to find information on this file format anywhere...

    AFM240zf4 <--------probe name field at line 1
    (AC)n <--------probe description field
    D20S181 <--------D-number from GDB
    Z23780 <--------gene symbol (or Z-number from Genbank)
    4 <--------number of fragments
    4 <--------number of alleles (up to 36 alleles)
    20 <--------chromosome (1 to 22, 23 is X, 24 is Y, 25 is pseudoautosome)
    q <--------arm of this chromosome (p, q, b for both or c for centromere)
    0.000000E+00 <--------cytogenetic location *
    0.000000E+00 <--------cytogenetic location **
    0.000000E+00 <--------gene location
    5.555556e-01 <--------observed heterozygote frequency
    102193 <--------last update mmddyy
    p <--------status p (published) u (unpublished), all data considered published
    0 <--------Reliability
    42 0 0 0 <--------CEPH collaborator code number
    Genotyped <--------interpretation
    1.600000E-01 1.560000E-01 1.640000E-01 1.660000E-01 <-- size of fragments
    1 2 3 4 <-- correspondence alleles/fragment
    3.888889e-01 2.500000e-01 3.611111e-01 0.000000e+00 <-- allelic frequencies
    1326 8067 1 0 0 1
    1326 8065 2 0 0 2

      Can you elaborate on why you think these are capillary sequence files?

      Following may be totally out in the left field but I am wondering if these are files from GDB (human genome database) which is a now extinct database that was started back in beginning of human genome project at Johns Hopkins (late 1980s). The D-numbers and the date (1993) all seem to point to GDB.

      See page 8 from this PDF: http://web.ornl.gov/sci/techresource...fs/Vol4No2.pdf

        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...

        Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
        by seqadmin


        Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
