  • SFF file - primers

    I am using 454 Roche Junior, I have few questions about reads of sff file.
    I have splitted a SFF file into individual SFF file (according to their MIDs), I don't understand if I have to do also remove primers in the reads or if they are already removed.
    Please could you explain me the structure of a read in general?
    Thank you in advance

    Primers should already be removed, both the primers that are used for sequencing and the MID sequences. When in doubt, you could use prinseq, it will try to detect adaptor sequences. http://edwards.sdsu.edu/cgi-bin/prinseq/prinseq.cgi.

      Thank you very much for your response. I have another question: is it a problem if my amplicon is longer than final read and it is possibile that the end (3') of my read is incomplete?

      Thank you in advance for your attention!

        A problem for what? Depends on your further analysis steps, I guess?

          A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
          by seqadmin

          ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

          Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
          by seqadmin
          Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

          The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
