    Nevermind. When I ran the alignments in Bowtie I forgot to remove the "-S" parameter.

    *****************

    I never really noticed this before, but Bowtie doesn't show - or + strand assignment. Instead it seems to give a code for what strand it aligns to in the second column of the output (SAM or Bowtie format).

    The Bowtie manual says that the flag '16' represents the alignment to the reverse (-) reference strand. In my data I see '16', '0', '4' as alignment flags in the second column, '4' representing no alignment.

    A flag '0' represents alignment to the forward (+) strand? Is that correct?

    Just want to verify that.


    Thanks.

    You cant delete your own posts, but I will delete this one if you want. In the future, the community would benefit from leaving your thread/question intact, as someone else could certainly make the same mistake.

            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...

            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...
