Member of the Faculty of Life Science's bioinformatics core facility.

http://www.youtube.com/user/ManchesterBCF/videos?view=1&flow=grid for video tutorials.

.

I specialise in ChIP-seq analysis, but also run RNA-seq and other NGS applications. Data comes, almost exclusively from illumina sequencers, but I used to mostly analyse SOLiD sequence.

.

I am interested in the analysis, organisation and presentation of genomics data. I have a special place in my heart for the hunting of transcription factor binding sites.

Answer: A: Normalising RNA-seq samples from bam files for UCSC Genome browser visualization
... I have tackled this on a small scale by retaining SAM reads used by htseq-count (--samout), and removing those excluded from the final counts, using sed '/XF:Z:$/d;/XF:Z:__/d'. After normalisation by DESeq2 I use the scaleFactor to scale the SAM > BAM files, using bedtools genomecov (-scale). ...

Answer: A: What shall I do with this RNA-seq data that have no replicates?
... There might still be useful results in experiment 2, but Pvalue and fold change are only indicative at best. The results might give you leads for further lab experiments, or be impressive enough to warrant a second attempt with replication. ...
