  • Velvet/Oases transcript expression level?

    Hi,
    I am in the process of de novo transcriptome assembly from a non-model eukaryote. I have 17 million 65 bp, paired-end reads that I have assembled with Velvet and then Oases. This gives nice results in that I am getting full-length contigs that appear reasonable when compared to orthologues in related model eukaryotes. However, I am really after relative transcript expression levels. Does anyone know if there as a way that I can get information on that from this software combination?

    Hi Simon,

    I'm not by any means an expert on this, but you probably have two options:

    1. Convert the kmer coverage in the stats.txt file to base-coverage and use that as a proxy for expression level

    2. Align the reads to the assembled transcripts using something like Bowtie and then extract the coverage of each transcript using SAMTools

    Hope that helps!

      Velvet question

      How can one extract all of the reads that were used in the assembly, in order to do the re-mapping step you described?

        Under the contrib/extractContigReads directory in Velvet you'll find a script to do this
