  • Single stranded coverage from sam/bam

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of a fast, handy way to calculate coverage of the forward and reverse strands in a genome independently?

    I have a (really hacky) script that works on my data but was hoping someone has a more elegant solution. At the moment, I've been sorting my sam file into a fwd.reads.sam and rev.reads.sam, converting to bam files and then using Aaron Quinlan's bedTools (which is fantastic), like so...

    genomeCoverageBed -d -ibam FWD.READS.EXAMPLE.bam -g MY_genome_file.txt > SINGLE_STRAND_COVERAGE.tsv`;

    Any hope there's a way to do this single strand coverage calculation directly on the bam files and avoid all the icky sorting I've been doing?

    Thanks!!!
    Lizzy

    genomeCoverageBed has a "-strand" flag

        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...
