  • Data Analysis question

    Hi all,
    I'm going through some exome-seq data (10 samples), and following a "standard" pipeline - BWA, HaplotypeCaller, GenotypeGVCF, etc.. nothing too fancy.

    My question is on the VQSR step. From my understanding, this works best when you have lots of samples to look at, but since I only have 10 samples, would it be better to simply do some hard-filtering on the dataset? Alternatively, I was thinking of bringing in some additional samples (such as a bunch of 1K genome exomes) and add these into the mix. This would increase the number of samples. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Also, how many samples would be truly need to do the variant filtering with the VQSR rather than hard-filtering? (I'm having a little bit of a hard time finding what the minimum number of samples for it to work reliably).

    Thanks for any advice

    Adding 1000 genomes samples might be counterintuitive because you probably already use them as a training set to build the VQSR classifier. There shouldn't be an issue with using hard filtering but regarding sample size for VQSR, you might ask the developers on the GATK forum to get the right answer.

      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...
