  • Dindel - overrepresentation of 1 bp indels

    Hi all,

    I performed whole exome sequencing with 2x 100bp paired end sequencing on the Illumina Genome Analyzer II. I aligned the reads with BWA and then tried to find indels using both VarScan and Dindel version 1.01. For the dindel programme, I just followed the manual.
    However, when I look at the indels found with Dindel, 86% of the indels that are found, are 1 basepair indels. (When I used VarScan, 69% of the found indels are 1 basepair.) This seems a lot to me. Could this be because of the presence of nearby SNPs? Does anybody has experiences with this?

    Also, the largest indels I've found are 4 basepairs. However, I thought that dindel could find much longer indels?

    Thanks a lot,
    Lien

    I had no such problems in terms of not being able to call longer indels.

    For the overrepresentation of 1bp indel, maybe thats the true case. if you still don't believe Sanger sequence to verify the ones you are skeptical with (just sample some).

      I found indels up to 21bp in size using GATK's implementation of dindel in the UnifiedGenotyper. Maybe you should try it out.

        Ok, thanks for your replies.

        I think I'll try to sequence some of the indels with Sanger sequencing ...

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

          Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
          by seqadmin


          Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
