  • How to get the multiple matches of a same read in the results

    I will be very obliged if someone can help me with this question. I am new to the field of mapping reads with next gen sequencing.

    I have Sanger reads 80-150 bp and I am using BWA to align my reads to the human genome. In the output of my results I get reads that are mapped to multiple locations, but the results have only one position returned (best hit). How do I get all the hits returned in my output.

    Here are the parameters I have used:
    bwa aln -n 0.10 -o 3 -M 1 -O 5 -E 1 /home/data/chr8_all.fa /home/data/data1.fastq > /home/data/data1_aln_sa.sai
    bwa samse chr8_all.fa data1_aln_sa.sai data1.fastq > data1_aln.sam


    Thanks

    Hi biobee,

    I think you have to look at the XA tag, which reports the alternative hits in the format chr, pos, CIGAR, NM. You can set the maximum number of hits to report with the -n option of samse.

      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...
