This is the sequence of illumina small RNA seq 3' adapter as reported everywhere:


if i trim this adapter only 0.2% of all the reads are trimmed.

Just by casual observation I noticed that the sequence "TGTAGGCACCA" is present in the 3' of 50% of the reads. It is not the case with another sample.

Is there a standard adapter sequence? If not then is there a tool for finding any unknown adapter? biopieces find_adaptor doesnt look for all kinds of possible adapters.

Check the Kit you used for library preparation; We have "TGGAATTCTCGGGTGCCAAGG" as 3prime adapter sequence. Did you tried fastx tool kit for adapter clipping (fastx_clipper)?

this is not my data.. i am doing analysis of a data which i downloaded from SRA.. yes I was using fastx_clipper, but the adapters vary from sample to sample..
