  • explanation about hard clip and soft clip reads

    Hello Everyone,

    I am working on SOLiD data. I am using Lifescope v2.5.1 for mapping of reads. SAM file obtained after mapping contains CIGAR string in form of hard clip and soft clip.

    I was just wondering that if in a 75bp read CIGAR string is 34H41M or 49M26H then will this be considered as bad mapping or still we can consider this as good mapped read. Is there a limit on number of hard clip or soft clip present in the sequence.

    Hoping for a positive response.

    Thanks in advance

    ​​​​​​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...
