  • 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,

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
