  • Determine ERCC presence

    My one-liner of the day:

    Is there ERCC spiked into my sample?

    Code:
    fastq-mcf n/a -l 30 $fq1 | zhead -n 100000 | bowtie -p 4 -S -m 1 --best --strata  ercc92.fa - 2>&1 > /dev/null | perl -ne '($c)=/Reported (\d+)/; $c+=0; END {print "$c\n"};'
    This scans the fastq for reads that are not N's and have OK quality and have a minimum of 30 base pairs. Then it takes the first 100k reads of that sort and sends them to bowtie, which looks for non-ambiguous ERCC hits. ERCC's are alien enough that a count of 2 or more is sufficient for "detection" of ERCC.

    This script is very fast (completing in <1 second, 2.474 seconds of CPU time), and informs downstream programs that ERCC is present and should be dealt with appropriately (quantified, reported on, subtracted, etc.)

    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...
