Comment: C: What is the actual cause of excessive zeroes in single cell RNA-seq data? Is it
... I was referring to the library prep actually. Maybe a dense clump of extracted RNA from many cells confers some kind of protection against loss vs less molecules from a single cell. I have no evidence for this at all. And I am sure people more experienced with labwork can correct me. I am just throw ...

Answer: A: What is the actual cause of excessive zeroes in single cell RNA-seq data? Is it
... I think the simple answer might just be that handling small amount of molecules is difficult and there is more percentage molecule loss in single cell prep than in percentage loss in bulk. Maybe there is a big difference in how our prep reagents work on the micro-environments of small number of mo ...

Comment: C: bowtie2 malformed sam/bam files
... I am actually not sure if 2.3.0 works with 2.3.0 index. I would assume so? The release notes doesn't indicate that a new index should be generated. I'll inform them of the bug. ...

Answer: A: bowtie2 malformed sam/bam files
... After dealing with this for several hours I realized the problem is with my bowtie2 index. I generated my index with bowtie2 2.3.0. It looks like mapping with 2.3.3 on a 2.3.0 index is causing these problems. ...

bowtie2 malformed sam/bam files
... Does anyone have any experience with bowtie2 (2.3.3) generating malformed sam/bam files? I am mapping a set of fasta files (not fastq) to a set of transcriptome sequences. I noticed from my .sam output that there were a lot of malformed entries. I wrote a quick script to pull some of these lines o ...

fitting model to a read coverage spectra
... K-mer spectra of genomic reads are usually modeled as a poisson mixture process where each of the components represents the variety of ploidies of a genome. So a k-mer spectra that looks like the following can be interpreted as showing a poisson component representing heterozygous regions (1N) and a ...

Comment: C: StackExchange/Area51 bioinformatics is back
... I agree with you to a degree about the Q&A format. I think a nicely structured searchable knowledge base would be very helpful and maybe SE can become that. But I also think that the nature of the bioinformatics field probably means there are enough questions of the abstract type which warrant ...
