  • 454 Reads correction with Short reads ?

    Hello everybody,

    I can see that my 1Mio 454 reads are full of insertions/deletions in homopolymer regions, and of course this disrupts my ORFs in later stages (annotation step). Fortunately, I have ca 60mio Illumina reads that I can use to correct these errors. Both dataset are cDNA.

    Has anyone a preferred method to correct short sequencing error indels? If tractable, I would prefer correcting my reads rather than correcting my draft assembly obtained from those reads. I was going to use ssaha (or segemehl, qpalma, other?) to map the illumina reads on my 454 reads, and then extract a consensus by parsing the pileup file generated with samtools

    I have seen a few published, more advanced, methods available but I*do not now if one of them performs better (e.g. iCorn). Do you?

    Thanks a lot!

    I don't know if any programs will correct your reads!

    See here for another effort .. I have got it to work but am still interpreting results

      I did this once. My approach was to map the reads to the contigs (BWA -e5), realigned the indels using GATK and polished the contigs based on the the indel report. I did this multiple times as some corrections made it possible to correct other neighbouring regions.

      I dont have the polishing script any more, but I recall it as fairly simple. It should be possible to polish the reads instead, with some perl regex magic.

          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...
