  • Flowgram signals to quality score

    Can anyone explain how the raw flowgram signals are converted into quality scores for the 454 GSFLX system? I'm trying to compare two processing methods, and am running into trouble with each screening for quality based on different criteria (one based on flowgram signal, the other based on quality score).
    Thanks!

    From the manual:

    "The signal flowgrams of the reads are basecalled and quality scores for each base are calculated based on the signal properties relative to the statistical distributions of the Control DNA fragment signals."

    Does that help?

      I would also love an explanation of the 454 quality scores.

      I think there is an error in the original definition of 454 quality scores, as described here: http://seqanswers.com/forums/showthread.php?p=50237

      Cheers,

        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...
