Will the alignment be incorrect or will there be some problem with alignment if sequence duplication level is not good? Shall I move forward with the alignment or is there a way to correct/minimize it?

There could be a technical problem or this might just be how you decided to construct the library. You can probably proceed with mapping, but first, review what this FastQC module does and make a decision based on that information.

FastQC manual:

Galaxy tutorials:

  • NGS logistics - this is an introduction to Galaxy's functionality for the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data.
  • ChIP-seq: A simple ChIP-seq experiment with two replicates - an example analysis for finding transcription factor binding sites. Note the 50-60% duplicated levels in the sample data, and the filtering step after mapping to screen out multi-mapping sequences (possibly shorter/non-specific reads).

Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team
