  • coverage depth, bedtools and RNA-Seq experiment

    I want to estimate the % of a transcriptome covered by an RNA-Seq experiment.

    I tried to use BEDTools: one file consisted of exons only coordinates (from UCSC), the other file consisted of TopHat alignments.

    The results show that 70% of the transcriptome has coverage depth 0.

    I was expecting a much smaller percentage, given that I started with 100,000,000 reads x 2 (PE) and the total length of the transcriptome is 17,470,227.

    Am I making a big mistake here?

    ps. when I say "transcriptome", I mean the collection of all exons.

    Can you show us the command you used to generate that value?

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
