Comment: C: Declining quality of biostars
... I think you'd need to really dramatically change the way threads are ordered on the main page, not ordered by time posted or time since last activity, but by using an algorithm much like Facebook's to push to the top of the page threads the site wishes users to see - perhaps because they are logged ...

Comment: C: BAM to CRAM to BAM
... Unfortunately, due to the number of different ways the same data can be stored in SAM/BAM/CRAM, checksums can not be used as a proxy for knowing what data is stored. Slight variations in compression would change the checksum without touching the data at all. SAM -> BAM and BAM -> SAM are not e ...

Answer: A: samtools sorting and indexing
... I think you're over-thinking things :) You can only index BAM files on position, and only when the data is sorted by position to begin with (don't ask...) So to sort by position just do: samtools sort my.sam > my_sorted.bam Then index with samtools index my_sorted.bam It's as easy as ...

Comment: C: Declining quality of biostars
... Agreed - looking through the unanswered questions they're mainly either duplicates of older questions, or do not provide enough detail. Also it's summer and so the quality of questions typically drops and/or becomes all about 'where is a good place to study bioinformatics', etc. Having said that, i ...

Comment: C: SAM file size after STAR alignment
... There are so many variables here it's impossible to say. If you didn't get an error then presumably you're fine. The file size increase is perfectly normal. But by the sounds of things you really should look into pairing-up with someone who knows what is going on to teach you the ropes :) ...

Comment: C: Where and how NGS techniques are heading for the next 5 years?
... It's depressing that someone green-lighted funding for a project to encode and read DNA using current-day technology. Might as well set the money on fire. They both just made an encoding and then synthesized a ton of short fragments with indexes like disk inodes and called it a day. Very disappointi ...

Comment: C: Obtaining uniquely mapped reads from BWA mem alignment (filtering by q score doe
... Yeah you add the numbers together for the ones you want to keep (-f), and the ones you want to remove (-F). A good tool to figure this out is [Explain SAM flags][1]. I don't remember any of these numbers off by heart, i use that tool to work it out each time. The "0x..." notation you were using befo ...
