Hello, I know that if a read has SAM flag 16 means that read has been mapped to the reverse strand in bam file. My question is:
So does it mean that this read fall into the gene which is on forward strand in gene annotation files? (since gtf files are concerned with the coding sequences of genes)
Transcription of the forward-strand gene means the gene's template sequence is read from the reverse strand
Sometimes there might be different genes on both strand of DNA and I wanna know 16(for example) correspond to which gene on gene annotation files(+ or - strand gene in gtf file?)
Thanks a lot!!
