I noticed for much of the NGS data analysis work, whether it be qPCR detection and creating the 'pretty' graphical charts or analysing read depths on NGS of a gene of interest, the log2 base or a log10 base is often used. What makes the log function so special and so used in NGS, For example, in the link below, on page 4 of the manual, there is a chart plotting shRNA frequency versus read depth (log2). Why does one need to use log2 for read depth?
