  • bowtie 2 randomness

    Hi,
    Is it possible to have the same alignment for identical reads with bowtie 2 or should bowtie 1 be used? That is there are some genomic positions that should have the same number of mapped reads but they output different number of reads. Does it come from the alignment randomness and how to switch it off?

    Thanks

    Carol

    Bowtie use a pseudo random generator. If you use the --seed option with the same parameter, Bowtie will use the same "random" numbers during the process.

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
