  • Intron Annotations C. Elegans

    I'm working with a mRNA-seq data set where I expect to find non-WT expression that includes bits of introns in mature transcripts. I'd like to be able to use HTSeq-count to add up hits in introns, but my Ensembl GTF (from Illumina's C. elegans iGenomes page) doesn't have introns as a class of annotation.

    Does anyone have suggestions about where I can find such a file (or how to generate one)?

    No one bothers to put introns in annotation files, since the exons are already there and the introns are just between them. One of the more convenient methods to get bounds of introns is to just make/load the TxDb for your organism in R and use the intronsByTranscript() function in GenomicRanges. Note that you'll likely want to post-process that a bit (e.g., make disjoint intronic bins, find which intersect exons and then remove them).

      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...
