  • Why is it necessary to visualize the RNA-seq data in a genome browser?

    Hi,

    Its a silly question but Why is it necessary to visualize the RNA-seq data in a genome browser?

    hm - I don't think that there's a rule forcing you to do so but it can definitely help you to get an idea of the data and to quickly check certain things.

    Let's say you would like to know if the coverage over the transcripts is more or less uniform or not - having a look at it with genome browser will take you five minutes to get an idea if it may be uniform or absolutely not. Writing a script will take you definitely longer...

    by the way - most of the people don't like to interpret thousands of numbers - pictures are generally preferred. So if you find a trend in your analysis, most readers will be happy if you can illustrate it with an example...

      It is also useful to check gene models by eye - they should match up with the RNA-seq coverage information (e.g. intron/exon boundaries, or paired reads should all be within one transcript).

        I wouldn't say it's necessary. Many researchers like to take an actual look at the data to get ideas, as above posters wrote already; I admit, I also do that.

        But this can be misleading and you can jump to wrong conclusions, and then you try to prove "what you see" using rigorous analysis, while actually it's not there.

        There are many subtle issues with visualization of RNA-Seq/HT transcriptome profiling (pixel width, thresholds when tags appear/dissapear, coloring of tags which are smaller than one pixel, multiple tags within the same pixel while being zoomed out, etc, etc) which can give you wrong ideas when looking at the visualization.

          Viewing the custom tracks in UCSC genome browser

          HI,

          Am having a query for uploading the custom tracks. I need to know that if I want to visualize the RNA-Seq data then I have to upload the bigwig file for the same right? So lets say I have 1 patient with tumor and the conditions are having center and periphery of tumor. So for that patient I have RNA -Seq data of 4 samples with a center of tumor, periphery of tumor , recurrent center of tumor and recurrent periphery. So I want to view the data in Genome Browser. in order to do that I should convert all the BAM files of all the four and create a bigwig files for each and then add them using add custom tracks in the browser right?

            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...
