  • GATK: GenomeAnalysisTK.jar file

    Hello all,

    I’m nuclear about what should contain the GenomeAnalysisTK.jar file.

    This is how the command line looks like:
    java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -R exampleFASTA.fasta -I exampleBAM.bam -T CountLoci -o output.txt

    My questions are:
    1. what is the GenomeAnalysisTK.jar file? Does it just contain .dict and the .fai files?
    2. can the GenomeAnalysisTK.jar be just substituted by the path where the corresponding files (whatever they are) are located? Otherwise is there a specific way to compress that folder and created the jar file?

    I’d be grateful if someone could please clarify on this.

    Thanks
    Jorge

    Hi, you need to download the toolkit and type in the path in the command, e.g.:
    Code:
    java -jar /path/to/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar [options]
    The toolkit can be downloaded from:

      .jar files are compressed java source code files (Java ARchive). This file is actually the program. It does not contain the .dict and the .fai files.
      I didn't understand your second question, but as stated before there is no genome-specific file in the source-code archive.

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

        Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
        by seqadmin


        Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
