    I am currently using "gsRunProcessor 2.0.01.12".

    For refiltering I follow the steps provided in the original manual @ page 56 and further.

    Little summary of those pages:

    gsRunProcessor --template=filterOnly > filterfile.xml (change the values in this xml file to your desired values)

    And then to refilter:

    runAnalysisFilter --pipe=filterfile.xml <your_D_folder_to_reanalyse>

    But have you checked the standard filter values compared to the older software pipeline? I know we get +50% +100% more reads when tweaking the filter settings (especially in 'exotic' experiments such as bisulphite, chip-seq or pull-down (ChIP) experiments). And most of those additional reads do map and are valid.

    Nevertheless, I am quite suspicious towards improved efficiency software-based for standard experiments, especially because I got a 'hint' from a Roche tech support guy to change the value of a filter from 0.05 to 0.10 as default value, which indeed improved reads passing the filters some %s.

    When it appears to be a case of filter settings, i'd recommend you to just refilter your experiments. There is a chapter on it in the manual and it takes only 10 mins or so instead of going through the whole pipeline.
    Which Roche program and which parameters are you using to do this refiltering?

    Ahh, a zen koan variant. Sadly, those who reach enlightenment through its agency may not be disposed to post here.

    We haven't validated yet. We still need to check these differences. We looked up a few in the alignment browser and these seemed to look ok. We 've also already seen some really interesting variants being detected. Changes from "-" to "-" for example. Not really helpful

    I think there's also some improvements in the HCDiffs detection, because we seem to pick up more differences than can be explained by the additional sequence from the improved signalprocessing and mapping
    But those are real differences, not false positives? I ask, because one way to produce more "high quality" sequence is to tune a base caller to be more "confident" without actually being any more accurate.

    I'm probably just being paranoid. More likely the alignment software was improved...

    started a topic 3-5% more seq from new Roche software

    3-5% more seq from new Roche software

    We have reprocessed a few older runs using the new "Phase C" aka "v. 2.3" Roche Data Processing software that was released last week. This involves redoing image analysis/basecalling--so it is CPU-intensive. But we see more favorable results in 454BaseCallerMetrics.txt in every case we have tried. We have seen anywhere from 3% to just over 5% more totalBases.

    Anyone else tried to reprocess older runs with the new software? If so, did you see improvements?

    PS The major improvement is that the GSAssembler (aka "Newbler") is now "cDNA-aware". EST assemblies work much better!

    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...
