  • FastQC in a pipeline

    Hi,

    We are running fastqc with the fq files before alignment with STAR. For now the fastqc output is a html file. I was wondering:

    1. Could any of the output from fastqc be used to feed STAR for trimming purpose, pls?

    2. How do you process and evaluate PE reads, pls?

    3. For now the fastqc output is a html file. If we want to feed STAR with certain fastqc output parameters, is there a way to generate a QC report that we could extract information from for STAR?

    Thanks,
    Grace

    FastQC only QC's data. It does not have any functionality for post-processing data (e.g. trimming). You will want to use a dedicated trimming program for that (examples are BBDuk.sh, trimmomatic, cutadapt, skewer etc).

    In general if your libraries are good (i.e. no gross adapter dimer contamination etc) no trimming should be required. Most aligners (STAR should too) will soft clip reads during alignment.

    FastQC also generates a zip file that has multiple text files (which are used for generating some of the graphics). Take a look at those for getting at the QC data.

      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...
