    The wiggle score can be anything, it's a track type, not a type of measurement. For a NGS dataset, it can be raw reads (i.e. how many reads cover that bp), or normalized RPM, with or without multireads, with multiread contribution to the score estimated in some convoluted way based on unique read abundance in the neighborhood, etc, etc. It all depends on how it was generated.

    Does anyone know how the scores for peaks in a wiggle file are calculated? I know the vertical axis in a wig file is its score but I'd like to know a bit about what it means. (I was asked about it by a colleague and I didn't have an answer).

    Thanks!
    It depends on the software you used. It may be the coverage or any other coverage-derived measure.

    In the .wig files we generate it's a count of the reads that either start at or cover that location. I suppose it could also be a normalized read count.

    A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
    by seqadmin


    ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

    Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
    by seqadmin
    Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

    The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
