    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.

            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...
