  • different number of reads mapped to plus strand and minus strand

    Hello all,

    I have data of capture (sure select) followed by Illumina sequencing.
    I see that I have more reads on the minus strand compared to the plus strand for example, for a certain position:
    33 reads mapped to the plus strand and 96 reads mapped to the minus strand
    88 reads mapped to the plus strand and 115 reads mapped to the minus strand

    Does anyone has explanations for that?

    DNA fragmentation is random, and so is cluster generation.

    Did you look at the entire set of mapped reads or just a few ?

      Hi,

      Thanks for the reply.

      I looked at 2 parameters:
      1. The number of reads mapped (on targets) - on plus strand and on minus strand:
      For some samples it is the same, for many samples it is very different (~x2).
      2. For each target base - I looked at a histogram of the number of reads mapped to that base on the plus strand divided by the total number of reads mapped to that base. It seems that there is some bias - and that there are bases that are covered only or mainly by one of the strands.

        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...
