  • 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 ...

          Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
          by seqadmin


          The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

          Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
          by seqadmin




          The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
