  • Bioinformatics Tool MultiQC Releases Important Updates

    A new version of the influential bioinformatics reporting tool, MultiQC, was recently released.

    MultiQC takes important summary statistics from other bioinformatic tools and generates a single report with interactive plots. It streamlines the process of spotting outliers and trends within the data to assist with quality control.

    Creator Phil Ewels announced the introduction of MultiQC to the SEQanswers community around its conception in 2015. It has been maintained by Ewels and Seqera labs, along with many code contributors over the years.

    The latest release of MultiQC (version 1.14) comes with new modules, features, updates, and code cleanups. The highlights include 14 new modules, most notably BBDuk, Cell Ranger, DRAGEN-FastQC, HiFiasm, NextClade and UMI-tools. In addition, 18 of the existing modules were updated to fix bugs and include useful tweaks. Among the new features, the Docker image was rebuilt and is now multi-arch.

    MultiQC has been cited in nearly 3,000 journal articles and will continue to be a vital tool for the bioinformatics community. For more information about MultiQC, visit the official website or read the details on GitHub.

    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...
