    So now that you understand how you can display images on your single page blog, it's time to figure out what kind of image to use. If your image preview widget from WordPress is disabled, you can use an image from your favorite stock photo site, or some other type of image that can be easily embedded into your blog post. Just make sure that you always use a quality image. best place to buy twitter accounts

    So here's what you can do to make sure that this blog post gets you as happy as you want to be. First of all, be sure to celebrate every little thing that happens to you (and there's a lot of stuff that happens to us)! Whether you're happy or sad, it's always good to take some time to remember all of the small and wonderful things in your life. Even if you think that they're little and insignificant, you'll be hard pressed to find someone who isn't thankful everyday for the little things in their life, and it's those little things that can truly propel anyone's spirits high. buy facebook accounts reddit

    Hi Valentina! How are you?
    I was hopping you could help me with the following:
    I have a human tumor sample from WES which has also been analyzed by cytogenetists and they concluded it is near-tetraploid. I also have its matching normal sample, with regular diploidy.
    When running Control-FREEC should I set ploidy to 3 or 2? In other words, does the plody entered refer to the tumor ploidy, the normal ploidy or it assumes both samples have the same one?
    Thank you very much in advance,
    Best,
    Daiana

    Hi, I do not see any evident mistake in the config file. If you want me to debug it, please share your config and corresponding files with me. Valentina.Boeva%at%inserm.fr

    Hi Valeu,

    I'm trying to run Control-FREEC on mouse exome sequencing data, but I've run into an issue! It works fine when I run Control-FREEC without the BAF analysis, but when I enable it I get the error "Segmentation fault (core dumped)". I'm wondering if this is an issue you've run into before and if you know how to sort it out?

    The full output from when I run Control-FREEC:

    captureRegions=/data2/christian/Sequencing/ReferenceFiles/S0276129/S0276129_AllTracks.bed
    Specifically, the error disappears when I remove the 'makePileup=' line (although then the BAF analysis isn't performed). The file is generated according to the instructions on the FREEC website (awk-ing the SNP-file for mm10 that's posted on the website).

    I'm running the analysis on exome data from mouse tumors, sequenced on an Illumina HiSeq in paired end mode using the Agilent Mouse All Exon kit. The files have been aligned to mm10 using BWA-men and dedupped with Picard. I'm running the analysis on Ubuntu (64 bit). I downloaded the Control-FREEC framework and the relevant SNP and mappability files from your website 2-3 days ago.

    Any help is much appreciated!

I had some multiallelic variants in the .snp file that were causing it to fail to load, and my sex variable in the configuration file didn't match up with the actual sample sex which caused problems as well. I ended up dropping the sex argument and using the following general configuration file for my samples:
    [general]
    window = 8000
    step = 2500
    samtools = samtools
    minCNAlength = 4
    BedGraphOutput = TRUE

    chrFiles = chrfiles
    outputDir = 31208T_31668N_FREEC_V1
    printNA = FALSE
    maxThreads = 6
    ploidy = 2
    breakPointType = 4
    contaminationAdjustment = TRUE
    noisyData = TRUE

    [sample]
    mateFile = 31208_EXOME.pileup.gz
    inputFormat = pileup
    mateOrientation = 0

    [control]
    mateFile = 31668_EXOME.pileup.gz
    inputFormat = pileup
    mateOrientation = 0

    [target]
    captureRegions = S0276129_Merged_Sorted_Probes.bed

    [BAF]
    SNPfile = snp128.singlebases.monoalleleic.freec_baf.txt
    minimalCoveragePerPosition = 5

    If anyone is interested I also have the commands I used to generate the pileups from the .bams, as well as the script I used to generate a working Mm9 and Mm10 .snp file.
    Hi, Smapdy,

    I am also working on a mouse project and want to use FreeC to call CNVs. However, when I use the Snp137 file I have the same error message as you mentioned above.
    I noticed it's been 2 years. But still wondering if you can send me the mm10.snp file?

    Thank you very much!
    Best,
    Yihua

    what should be the parameter for normal/tumor clone with varying coverage

    I would like to discuss certain things with you regarding the samples am using to infer CNV with exome data with Control-FREEC. I am using WES tumor data. I have tumor sample with a coverage of 70X(polyclonal) and its match normal as blood with same coverage. I used 500 windows and step 250 to infer the CNVs. I found 120 CNVs with signifiance with a median of 42kb for a region that is called CNV. However am applying the same parameters when I am using to infer CNVs from my tumor reprogrammed clones which are sequenced at 35X since they are single clone but the normal control in that case is again 70X coverage blood sample. So can you suggest me if the window length for this? Should it be the same as that of tumor/normal pair? I did with same window and found the median distribution of the bases is higher for single clone iPSCs than the tumor. Do you have any suggestion is I should double the window and step size for the single clone or reduce it by half? Also the coverage of normal blood is 70X while that of the iPSC clone is 35X so wont the results be spurious taking the same window and step as with tumor/normal samples having both 70X coverage? What should be ideal window and step if the control is having double the coverage than its tumor sample? or is it preferable to use the coefficientofVariation? If so then what should be the suggestion of coefficientofvariation that I should use. Also the breakpointType and breakpoint threshold that should be used. Am attaching the config file which I already used for my normal/tumor (both 70X coverage) . I have used the same config file for normal/tumor-IPSC (70X/35X) coverage. The results look promising but am thinking if am tampering with the sensitivity or not, but as far as I know the read depths are normalized for both and then the CNV are calculated. Still I would like some suggestions about the parameters I should change for varying normal/tumor depth. Should I also use intercept=0 and readcountThreshold >=50 since it is WES data. I would like some suggestions if it seems that am tampering with the sensitivity since am keeping the parameters same for norma/tumor and normal/ipsc which has different coverage.

    [general]
    
    chrLenFile = /scratch/GT/vdas/pietro/exome_seq/test_Control_FREEC/hs19_chr.len

    error while control free C

    Hi,
    I have bam files for my sample. I ran control-freeC (WGS) for all chromosomes and got _CNV for them .
    However for chromosome X and Y I am getting error :
    'Unable to proceed..
    Try to rerun the program with higher number of reads'

    The data (tumor) is of 27x coverage for hg18 track.
    I have tried a winow length of 1000,1500 and 3000 but still get the same error.

    I am not able to understand the reason for getting this error.

    Thanks
    Anwesha

    Hi,

    I am running ControlFreec for matched tumor/normal pairs whole exome sequencing.
    However for one sample I am always getting the error.

    Initial guess for polynomial:
    Error: variation in read count per window is too small.
    Unable to proceed..
    Wed Nov 12 14:41:11 GMT 2014

    I have tried to increase the window size but still get the same problem. Last setting for window size was 1500.

    The average coverage for the normal and tumor is 107x and 24x respectively.

    I am a bit clueless here.. should I increase or decrease the window size?

    Thanks

    Regards
    Shruti

    I will try to add it. But I assure you that the results will be the same as if you use hg18_snp130.SingleDiNucl.1based.txt

    FREEC uses overlapping windows to scan the genome (if step < window). This is why you may have overlapping predictions. The breakpoint should be located somewhere in the overlapping part.
