  • BWA-mem and BWA-aln reads with multiple mapping

    I have read that for bwa-aln

    samse bwa samse [-n maxOcc] <in.db.fasta> <in.sai> <in.fq> > <out.sam>
    Generate alignments in the SAM format given single-end reads. Repetitive hits will be randomly chosen.

    and for bwa-mem
    This post (http://seqanswers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=51081) refers to a post that states that "BWA makes random choice".

    Is it possible to set a seed or in some other way ensure that bwa-aln and bwa-mem are deterministic? i.e same reads => same mapping.

    I am seeing a case where 2 runs of the same analyses gives different results due to random mapping of some shorter reads (post trimming).

    Thanks

    Targeted Sequencing: Choosing Between Hybridization Capture and Amplicon Sequencing
    by seqadmin




    Targeted sequencing is an effective way to sequence and analyze specific genomic regions of interest. This method enables researchers to focus their efforts on their desired targets, as opposed to other methods like whole genome sequencing that involve the sequencing of total DNA. Utilizing targeted sequencing is an attractive option for many researchers because it is often faster, more cost-effective, and only generates applicable data. While there are many approaches...

    Expert Advice on Automating Your Library Preparations
    by seqadmin



    Using automation to prepare sequencing libraries isn’t a new concept, and most researchers are aware that there are numerous benefits to automating this process. However, many labs are still hesitant to switch to automation and often believe that it’s not suitable for their lab. To combat these concerns, we’ll cover some of the key advantages, review the most important considerations, and get real-world advice from automation experts to remove any lingering anxieties....
