Default General mapping rate of human resequencing data against reference in GAiix/Hiseq

Hi GA/Hiseq users!

I would like to know general mapping rate of human reseq data produced by Hiseq/GA against human reference.
Some site says 95% mapping of >q30, however another site says under 80% or under 75%. I guess what mapping rate is usually acceptable.

Thankm you!!

This will depend on the quality of your data and the length of your reads. We see somewhere over 70% mapping from a good 40bp run, but some of the unmapped stuff will be parts which aren't in the assembly. 95% mapping sounds very optimistic even for very long reads with good quality.

For comparison PhiX maps at around 98.5% which suggests that the reduction in human is due to genome complexity and not sequence quality.

Dear Simon Andrews,
Thank you very much for the reply.
We usually read 100PE using GAIIX or HIseq2000 and mapping rate is 70~80% againt human. Depending your advice, this mapping rate is likely to be normal.
