I'm trying to understand the variance of the same individual on the same chromosomes tested on Dante 30x and Nebula 100x. Is this expected? Other chromosomes are not as drastic. Which WGS is more "the truth" ?

Are you sure they use the same reference?

The same person, different samples.

@German is asking if the data from two samples is aligned to an identical reference.

hg19 vs hg38

trying to covert the hr19 to hr38 with no luck so far.

CrossMap.py bam -a ./hg19ToHg38.over.chain.gz ./t.bam ./t.hg38

It would be best to convert the data back to fastq files and remap it in both cases to a reference you know. Otherwise the comparison you are trying to make may not be useful. There can be subtle differences in how data is mapped/processed and doing a simple crossmap may not be sufficient to do a meaningful comparison.

Thanks I have both original fastq files but they are split into two, do I need to merge them first?

but they are split into two

As in they are from two lanes e.g. have L001 or L002 etc in their names? They can be processed in parallel for each sample and then merged at BAM step. You could also cat them together in same order for R1/R2 files before aligning.

yes, if these are 2 very different reference genomes - this is what expected

I agree with GenoMax that they'd be better transformed to fastq rather than lifted over

thanks for the help
