  • 454 Roche. homopolymer error

    Hi Everybody,
    I'm currently working on 454 sequencing data generated by roche. I would like to correct homopolymer errors (indels). Do you have a software to recommend me?

    Thank you very much!

    Error corrector for Illummina and Roche/454 able to also fix insertions and deletions

    Blue is a fast, accurate short-read error-correction tool based on k-mer consensus and context. It will correct both Illumina and 454-like data, and accepts sequence data files in both FASTQ and FASTA formats. Blue is made available under the General Public License and comes with absolutely no warranty. Blue is



    Below are some comments from its author from my Inbox:

    The -hp option sets a flag that is checked when Blue is scanning along a read trying to find errors that could be corrected. There are a number of tests done at every base position, all based on depth of coverage. These tests will pick up random indel errors, but indels are so common at the end of homopolymer runs in 454 and IonTorrent data that multiple hp run lengths all look to be OK. For example, if our genome had AAAAAA then with Illumina data this is what we'd see almost all the time, with very rare indels at the end of the hp run resulting in runs of 5 or 7 As. With 454-like data, we'd probably get 5 As as frequently as 6 As so depth of coverage would say that neither of them are errors. The -hp flag looks out for the end of hp runs and forces an attempt at correction at that point. If the read wasn't in error, then no correction will be made.

    In general Blue will correct Ns - if a correct replacement can be found. The only time it doesn't do this is if there are too many consecutive Ns - as the process of finding likely replacements is combinatoric and the cost goes up exponentially with the number of consecutive Ns. In these cases, the read is abandoned and passed through uncorrected.

    I did not get to test it (yet).

      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...
