These data were generated from the Lucigen NxSeq Long Mate Pair Library Kit. Reads were processed as described on page 57 and 58 of the NxSeq manual.

Summary of data processing

Lucigen Mate Pair Post Sequencing Filter Steps

  1. Stats: 1099799 reads processed, 1007381 true mate reads ( 91 %) and 92416 non-mates/chimeras ( 8 %), 2 mates too short to keep after trimming
  2. Final usable output = R1_IJS7_mates_ICC4_SW023_S60_L001_R1_001.fastq and R2_IJS7_mates_ICC4_SW023_S60_L001_R2_001.fastq

FastQC analysis

Fastqc indicates that there are multiple technical problems with the reads, beyond the usual decrease in quality scores at the ends of reads. For example, most of these reads are only about 30bp long, when they are supposed to be 300bp long.

There are also unusual sequence duplication levels and abnormal k-mer content at the ends of reads.

FastQC results Lucigen mate pair R1

FastQC results Lucigen mate pair R2

Insert size distribution

The distribution of insert sizes for inward facing, outward facing, and same strand reads is shown below. Mate pairs should be outward facing.

To generate this distribution, mates pairs were mapped to all the soapdenovo “run 1” contigs using bwa. The orientation of reads was pulled from the resulting sam file using a script from the Green lab.

Duplicate Removal with Fastuniq

Using Fastuniq to remove duplicates decreased the number of reads significantly ~217,000 to ~90,000
