Smile 50 bp Single end Vs 100 bp Single end Vs 50 bp Paired end


I have planned to do RNAseq in Soybean with 3 biological replicates

May i know which type of sequencing would be the right one (Hi seq), if i would like to see the

SNP difference
Gene expression
Differential expression and
Splice junctions

For SNP calling you need to mark PCR duplicates. That works better with paired-end reads, so of the options I'd do 50bp paired-end. Paired-end reads will also be beneficial for mapping in general. You'll also be better able to differentiate isoforms with paired-end reads, if that's important to you.

Thanks dpryan

Since we have reference genome for Soybean

So do you mean the 50bp PE is good option and still all above four analysis can be done ?

How about the exon expression ? Is it possible too ?

I would recommend doing 2x100bp

Paired-end reads are preferred for de-convolution of isoform expression such as done by Cufflinks.
On the other hand, longer reads allow for much more accurate detection of the splice junctions.

PE first priority, longer reads second. Any reason you can't do 100?
