  • IDs, standard format?

    Hi,

    I was wondering, now that SRA isn't available anymore, if the format that the sra toolkit adopted for the IDs of the reads will still be used or not.
    Is there any effort to define the fastq format more precisely? About the IDs every different manufacturer uses its format right now?

    Thanks,

    It is even worse, some manufacturers use different read naming conventions for different versions of their sequencer/software. For instance,
    Discussion of next-gen sequencing related bioinformatics: resources, algorithms, open source efforts, etc


    We tried to define the (sequence space) FASTQ format in this paper, but deliberately avoided the issue of the read names. Much like FASTA files, there are countless different naming conventions out there

      Thanks for your reply. That paper was really useful, expecially regarding qualities...
      As long as ID's are really redundant it is a shame that a single standard format isn't defined (or at least some of them, well documented)...it would help compression software performances, for instance.

        The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
        by seqadmin



        Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

        Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
        by seqadmin


        New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

        A major leap in the field has
