  • Re-mapping contigs or predicted genes?

    Hi!
    I'm quite new to bioinformatics and am currently running into a dilemma on how to approach my re-mapping.
    I have successfully assembled my FASTQ-files (reads) and now have my contigs in FASTA files.
    From these FASTA-files, I want to predict its genes (with Prodigal) and find the depth (abundance) of the predicted genes. However, I am unsure if I should re-map my contigs back to my reads first, or if I should gene predict first, and then re-map the predicted genes back to the reads. As I see it, by re-mapping the predicted genes, I risk losing some of the reads not entirely in the gene. However, by re-mapping the contigs, I get a depth for all the reads on the contig, but will then have to correlate that data to the predicted genes somehow. Do you have any suggestions or preferences? And if you do, why would you choose one over the other.

    Thank you very much in advance!

      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...
