  • PacBio software vcf and consensus fasta do not agree

    I'm using your "variantCaller" tool (v6) to call variants on some older RSII subread data I aligned with blasr. The reference is 14845 bp. my variantCaller command is:

    Code:
    variantCaller --algorithm arrow --log-file variantCaller.log --annotateGFF --reportEffectiveCoverage --noEvidenceConsensusCall lowercasereference --minCoverage 40 --coverage 100 --minMapQV 40 --minConfidence 10 --minReadScore 0.75 --minSnr 3.75 --minZScore -3.5 --minAccuracy 0.82  --numWorkers 5 -r ref.fa -o 129C02-vs-ref.fa.sort.vcf -o 129C02-vs-ref.fa.sort.gff -o 129C02-vs-ref.fa.sort.fasta -o 129C02-vs-ref.fa.sort.fastq 129C02-vs-ref.fa.sort.bam
    Now it is my understanding that the fasta (and fastq) output this command should reflect the differences between the reference and the reads as reported in the vcf output.

    My vcf file reports:

    Code:
    #CHROM  POS     ID      REF     ALT     QUAL    FILTER  INFO
    ref    11438   .       CA      C       25      PASS    DP=100
    However when I align the reference and this fasta output 2 1-bp deletions are observed. One is the deletion in the vcf. The other is several thousand base pairs away and is not called by variantCaller.
    This is very disturbing.

    Can you explain this?

    Thanks for your help

    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...
