    G01N033/48
    G01N033/50
  • US Classification:
    702/021000, 702/019000
  • Abstract:
    Methods, systems, and articles of manufacture consistent with the present invention are provided for making allele calls. In certain embodiments, allele calling is accomplished by providing a committee machine that receives calls from several allele calling algorithms. By receiving calls from multiple allele calling algorithms, the committee machine makes calls containing a high level of confidence over a variety of conditions. Certain embodiments provide methods employing at least two algorithms and at least two quality values for allele calling. Unique individual algorithms for allele calling are also provided.
  • Determination Of Compatibility Of A Set Chemical Modifications With An Amino-Acid Chain

  • US Patent:
    20030200032, Oct 23, 2003
  • Filed:
    Mar 3, 2003
  • Appl. No.:
    10/378694
  • Inventors:
    Sean Keating - San Mateo CA,
    Heinz Breu - Palo Alto CA,
  • Assignee:
    Applera Corporation - Foster City CA
  • International Classification:
    G01N033/48
  • US Classification:
    702/019000
  • Abstract:
    Peptide mass mapping is a technique whereby masses determined from mass spectrometry of a protein digest are compared to the masses of theoretical peptides derived from a reference protein, specified as an amino-acid sequence. In some cases differences between experimental and theoretical masses can be accounted for by chemical modifications of the actual protein with respect to the reference, often as a result of post-translational modification (PTM). Typically such modifications are applicable to specific sets of amino-acid residues. Analysis of these mass differences can therefore lead to identification of PTMs. In various cases, it is desirable that such analysis in general allow for the possibility of a peptide having several different PTMs, and furthermore it is desirable in various cases that the chemical compatibility of a putative combination of PTMs with the peptide sequence be verified. Embodiments are described herein wherein compatibility verification is formulated as a problem in graph theory. Theory and implementation of a solution are discussed and described.

  • US Classification:
    506 9, 506 16, 536 2431
  • Abstract:
    Provided herein are systems, compositions and methods for tracking, sorting and/or identifying sample polynucleotides using nucleic acid barcodes. The barcodes provided herein are oligonucleotides that are designed to be uniquely identifiable. The nucleic acid barcodes have properties that permit them to be sequenced with high accuracy and/or reduced error rates. In some embodiments, the nucleic acid barcodes are designed to have certain nucleotide sequences that make up overlapping dibase color positions (also called color positions). The order of the overlapping dibase color positions can be determined using fluorophore-encoded dibase probes in a fluorophore color calling scheme to give high fidelity reads.

  • International Classification:
    G06F 19/00
    G01N 33/48
  • US Classification:
    702 20
  • Abstract:
    Systems and methods are used to identify an exon junction from a single read of a transcript. A transcript sample is interrogated and a read sequence is produced using a nucleic acid sequencer. A first exon sequence and a second exon sequence are obtained using the processor. The first exon sequence is mapped to a prefix of the read sequence using the processor. The second exon sequence is mapped to a suffix of the read sequence using the processor. A sum of a number of sequence elements of the first exon sequence that overlap the prefix of the read sequence, of a number of sequence elements of the second exon sequence that overlap the suffix of the read sequence, and of a constant is calculated using the processor. If the sum equals a length of the read sequence, a junction is identified in the read using the processor.

  • Assignee:
    LIFE TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION - Carlsbad CA
  • International Classification:
    G06F 19/10
  • US Classification:
    702 19
  • Abstract:
    Disclosed are systems and methods for resequencing using color calls. A DNA sample is encoded and sequenced according to a multi-base code producing a string of read color calls for a fragment of the sample. A reference sequence is obtained. The string of read color calls is mapped to the reference sequence. A base sequence is extracted from the reference sequence. The base sequence is encoded as a string of reference color codes according to the multi-base code. The string of read color calls is aligned with the string of reference color codes and mismatches in the alignment are detected. One or more mismatches of the string of read color calls are annotated as inconsistent. The one or more inconsistent mismatches of the string of read color calls are corrected. The string of corrected read color calls is decoded to bases producing a read sequence.
