  • reads mapping to highly similar genes using bowtie


    Hi,
    Good morning.

    I have used bowtie to map reads to a bacterial genome. This genome contains a set of around 10 genes belonging to a specific family which show very high sequence similarity with in themselves (>95%). So practically they are the same sequences with a very small number of base pair differences across them.

    Many of these genes turn up as differentially expressed using bowtie mapping followed by HtSeq read count and EdgeR steps.

    I can see (using IGV) that there is high mapping of reads across the highly similar regions across the gene set (in the experimental condition) when compared the control; which leads to them being marked as differentially expressed.

    Can someone explain (or point me to any previous posts) which explains how bowtie distributes the reads to be mapped across the various genes (irrespective of the fact that the sequences are the same)?
    Does is just divide them based on how many genes ?

    I am not using the "-a" option and hence assume that my reads are uniquely mapped.

    Appreciate any response.

    Cheers,

    Nandan

    Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
    by seqadmin


    The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

    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...
