  • Exome sequencing: should we do local realignment

    Dear colleagues,

    With ever-increasing quality of NGS platforms, is it still desirable to do local realignment for HiSeq 2500 human exome reads from an Agilent Sureselect library?

    Thank you

    Local realignements are helpful not because of sequencing quality concerns, but because of the general difficulty to get alignments right around indels, especially towards the end of reads .
    Btw, just saw this nice paper: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...l.pone.0075402

      I normally trim the first and last 5bp of reads for this reason (to avoid miscalled indels at the tips), after the reads are aligned. If you don't realign around indels, I recommend this. Might be a good idea even if you do realign; even with realignment, there are some features that you cannot resolve, since there is not enough information at the read tips.

        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...
