Due to the way that Illumina encodes their genotypes (https://www.illumina.com/documents/products/technotes/technote_topbot.pdf), the following are the possible allele pairs for a top strand file:
So one can check for a top strand file by checking the genotype frequencies. If only these pairs exists, then it is probably top strand. If all 12 possible pairs (4 x 4 – 4) are seen, then it is probably not top strand.
A watercolor painting of a tree I did while waiting for Esther.
We saw a huge monitor lizard basking in the morning sun at Chinese Garden.
Esther painted these paper weights. The theme was Singapore. I like the durian one.
Esther getting ready to tuck into her lemon meringue. It was so good.
Esther enjoying her trip to her class.
We brought Donut to Sunny Heights for a swim with the kids.
And here is a video of her swimming.
Esther had a couple of friends over for a small party.
They had great fun with Donut. Pauline got them some art pieces which they did.
Pauline got one of her friends to bake Esther a great looking cake.
Here is a short video.
The result of the watercolor class today. We were at Emerald Hill for the painting session.
The trees and bushes definitely needs more work.
