  • Truncating reads in fastq file

    I want to simulate shorter reads from a particular dataset. Say I want 50bp paired end reads from a 100bp paired end read data set while keeping the same insert size. Would I take the first 50 characters of the sequence and the score strings from each end? Or would I take the first 50 from the first end and the last 50 from the last end.

    Extracting the characters is easy with a simple awk command. I'm just curious about the order.

    Thank you very much.

    the first 50 from the second reads of the pair, if you want to keep the same insert size, because the sequences are given from 5' to 3', so the first 50 bases are the ones from the end of the fragment.

      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...
