  • Is possible to rescue the reads trimmet out with Trimmomatic?

    Hello to everyone, i'm new of this forum so i will apologize if could be a thread for this argument (i searched but i can't find it ).
    Here is my question,
    using Trimmomatic v0.10.1 is possible to rescue all that reads that have been trimmed out by the filteres( for example AVGQUAL)?
    if yes, could you tell me how?
    or if it's not possible could you give me some advice about other programs that can perform that kind of task?
    thank you all for the help

    ciao a tutti!

    BBDuk will do that. For example, if you want to remove phiX reads, and reads with average quality below 10:

    bbduk.sh ref=phix.fasta k=31 maq=10 in=reads.fq out=good.fq outm=bad.fq

    Passing reads go to out, and failing reads go to outm. I'm not sure whether you can do this with Trimmomatic; the manual seems to indicate that you can save pairs where one fails and the other doesn't, but does not seem to mention a way to catch all filtered reads.

      As Brian implied, Trimmomatic will separate the reads into R1_paired, R2_paired, R1_unpaired (e.g., R1 reads that no longer have an R2 mate) and R2_unpaired. Failed reads are thrown away.

      I don't use BBDuk -- too lazy to switch from Trimmomatic -- but I think that Brian's example will only produce two files -- one when *both* pairs pass the given parameters (in this case no-phiX, avg quality >= 10) and another file that contains pairs when *either* of the pairs fails. It is also possible to set up BBDuk to output 4 files ala Trimmomatic.

      However while the Trimmomatic and BBDuk "pass" files should be effectively the same (given algorithmic differences) the "fail" files will be different with Trimmomatic only having single reads and BBDuk having paired reads.

      This is a long winded post that says, yes, use BBDuk if you really want all of the failed reads with all of their warts.

        That's true, though note that there is also a "reib" ("removeifeitherbad") flag which will switch the behavior between removing pairs if either fails, and removing only if both fail.

        And it's also true that there's not much point in storing reads that fail quality metrics (unless you want to do some kind of QC analysis on them); it makes more sense when used for kmer filter.

          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...
