  • 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.

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
