  • How is SNP quality calculated in SAMTOOLS pileup?

    Hi all,
    I just wonder how is SNP quality (column 5) in SAMTOOLS pileup file calculated. I have googled for a long time without success. If you know where I can find a clear description about SNP quality, please tell me!

    Thanks

    Thanks
    Take a look at the supplementary materials in the MAQ paper (Li et al.). SAMtools uses the MAQ SNP calling model.

      Another question about good quality SNP calling

      Hello everybody,

      I have a similar question about good quality SNP calling.

      I have an MOSAIK assembly with Solexa 35 bp reads with quite low coverage (ranging between 0-15X). I am planning to use the SAMtools pileup -c output to extract high quality SNPs.

      I'm thinking of using the last column with the quality for each base in that position for filtering out the SNPs with good base quality.

      Here is my question: If I want to be really sure about the quality of an SNP where it is low coverage: Should I use the SNP quality in column 6 or the quality for each base at column 10?

      What do you think?

      Regards Kajsa

        The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
        by seqadmin



        Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

        Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
        by seqadmin


        New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

        A major leap in the field has
