Running ASE Read counter on WXS

skhalid7skhalid7 GatechMember

I wanted to ask if I can use ASE read counter on WXS data, instead of RNA seq. Would it give me the number of times a particular SNP has been observed on the DNA level? And is it correct to interpret the results that way?

    Are you looking for allelic depth observed in sequencing?

    No I'm hoping to use it as a proxy for copy number alterations per allele (does allele A seem to have more copies than Allele B ), need it for a quick analysis.
