  • DESeq on BS-Seq data

    Hi, would it be reasonable to use DESeq on Bisulfite data?

    I was thinking of using counts of the number of unconverted Cytosines (for different treatments) covering each gene as the input.
    Any reason I should *not* do that?
    Any thing I should be aware of in doing so?

    Thanks,
    Brent

    Or perhaps the counts would be better as number of Cytosines with > X% methylation within a gene?

      Dear Brent

      probably the answer is yes, but "use DESeq on Bisulfite data" is vague, and it will be good to first clarify: what is the biological question that you want to answer with this? How do you translate it into the hypothesis test(s) of DESeq?

      Whatever you do, can you first apply it to a comparison between biological replicates ("as if" they were the two conditions that you want to compare) and make sure that the type-I error (false positive rate or false discovery) is as advertised?

      Best wishes

        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...
