PacBio long-reads impact in transcriptome de novo assembly?

We are strongly interested in assembly a good transcriptome of reference for a non-model organism and build a local database. We have sequenced the same individual with Illumina (150 millions of pair-...

Performing PCA for the samples and for the genes

I have 10 samples from a RNAseq experiment (5 control, 5 disease), I have performed a cluster analysis for the samples and for the genes (4000 genes aprox) to see how they cluster (to see which ...

dbnSNP frequency anomalies

Sometimes dbSNP reports very different allele frequencies for different large-scale genome projects e.g. between 1000 Genomes and GnomAD rs11822440 1000Genomes A=0.4629 C=0.5371 GnomAD A=0.99997 ...

SNP vs Point Mutation

What is the difference between a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) and a point mutation? I am quite confused in understanding these term as both of them refer to one base difference from the ...

What's a template switching site?

Reading Islam et al. (2011): From each transcript, a single read is obtained, corresponding to a template-switching site located preferentially at the 59 end of the mRNA. By reading this page I ...

How can I downsample a BAM file while keeping both reads in pairs?

I know how to downsample a BAM file to lower coverage. I know I can randomly select lines in SAM, but this procedure can't guarantee two reads in a pair are always sampled the same time. Is there a ...

Are mitochondrial genes to exclude in scRNA-seq such as ribosomal genes?

In this answer, it is stated that ribosomal genes should be excluded prior to normalization in scRNA-seq as contaminants. Do mitochondrial genes have to be excluded as well? I plotted the top 50 ...

What are doublets in single cell RNA-seq data?

I am reading The Tabula Muris Consortium et al. (pp). In some organs, cells with more than 2 million reads were also excluded as a conservative measure to avoid doublets. How exactly is a “doublet”...
