  • Is there anyone knows how to calculate FPKM for specific UTR region?

    Is there anyone knows how to calculate FPKM for specific UTR region or just specif exon?

    The same as you would for anything else. You take the number of fragments mapping to each region, divide that by the length of each region in kilobases, and then divide the results by a million.

      Then how do you count reads in that region? Manually?

        You have a plethora of choices: htseq-count, featurecounts, summarizeOverlaps (in R), bedtools intersect, samtools view (note the -c option), etc.

          So if i want to use htseq to count reads for this specif region. i need to generate a gtf file for this region, right? now i have problem with that. my htseq or cufflink results from using this own gtf file were empty. i am wondering if there are other easier ways

            Yes, htseq-count requires a GTF file. If you can see alignments in IGV and you don't get any with the GTF file and htseq-count then you're probably doing something wrong. Try making a BED file and use bedtools intersect with that and the GTF file separately. If they both work and give approximately the same results then you know that you were using htseq-count wrong. If they give vastly different results then there's likely something wrong with the GTF file. If they don't give any alignments then you've screwed up specifying the region.

              Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
              by seqadmin


              Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

              Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
              by seqadmin


              Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
