  • Write the subset of reads from BAM file into new SAM/BAM file, using R tools.

    Hello every one.

    I am new in bioinformatic, and now I try solve the next problem. I have sorted BAM file with paired-end RNA-Seq data (several tens of thousands reads). My work tool is R. I need: 1) Filter this file by "isize" field: extract the reads with isize not equal to NA and with absolute value of isize lower than threshold (in this case, 642 bp); 2) Write this subset into SAM file, because this type is required for package which I will use.

    I tried use R package Rsamtools for this, function filterBam(). Remove reads with isize == NA is possible by means scanBamFlag:
    flag <- scanBamFlag(isPaired = TRUE, hasUnmappedMate = FALSE).

    But I have no idea about filtration by threshold (abs(bamFile$isize) <= 642). How I can do it in R? I do not believe that effective way for this does not exist. Unfortunately, my experience in R and programming for now is inadequate for solve this problem quickly. Can someone to help me? Thanks in advance!

    The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
    by seqadmin



    Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

    Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
    by seqadmin


    New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

    A major leap in the field has
