Running the Create Statistics for Target Regions

To create the target regions statistics:

        Toolbox | Resequencing (Image resequencing) | Create Statistics for Target Regions (Image QC_target_sequencing_16_n_p)

This opens a wizard where you can select mapping results (Image contig)/ (Image multicontig)/ (Image read_track_16_n_p). Clicking Next will take you to the wizard shown in figure 25.1.

Click the Browse (Image browse) icon to select an annotation track that defines the targeted regions of your reference genome. You can either import the target regions as an annotation file or convert from annotations on a reference genome that is already stored in the Navigation Area.

The Report type allows you to select different sets of predefined coverage thresholds to use for reporting (see below). Furthermore, you will be asked to provide a Minimum coverage threshold, i.e., the minimum coverage needed on all positions in a target, in order for that target to be considered covered.

Finally, you are asked to specify whether you want to Ignore non-specific matches and Ignore broken pairs. When these are applied reads that are non-specifically mapped or belong to broken pairs will be ignored.

Click Next to specify the type of output you want (see figure 25.2).
