    After apply MarkDuplicate on bam file from bwa alignment, samtools flagstat can detect the number of duplicates, how to setup the QC flag for samtools to detect? In my case samtools always detects 0 QC failure.

    Thanks

    samtools pileup process reads by pushing them in a pileup buffer. one of the conditions it goes through before pushing is to check the the read flag variable "flag_mask" in the pileup buffer structure

    The flag_mask is defined when
    1) mate is unmapped
    2) not primary alignment
    3) QC failture
    4) optical or PCR duplicate

    so it bascially won't include duplicates in a pileup unless you rewrite that condition and compile samtools yourself.

    For my case, if i want duplicates read to be reported in samtools, i'll have to run pileup on the BAM before marking it with duplicates.

    I couldn't find any documentation that says samtools pileup excludes duplicated marked reads in its calculation of coverage. Is there anyway to make pileup include duplicates marked reads in the coverage?

    Thanks.
    See the "-m" option that remove reads with certain bits set in the flag (like PCR duplicates). Modify however you want.

    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...

    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...
