  • Editing SAM files

    Dear all,

    I want to remove reads that map to ribosomal RNAs. I tried to modify the sam file (output of TopHat), and remove the reads that correspond to rRNAs. However, I could not run cufflinks on the modified sam files. Then I tried to sort them by converting them to bam (using samtools), but even then, it still did not work. I got the following error messages from cuffdiff.

    [22:39:41] Inspecting maps and determining fragment length distributions.
    SAM error on line 66185: CIGAR op has zero length
    SAM error on line 94994: CIGAR op has zero length
    SAM error on line 135374: CIGAR op has zero length

    Has anyone seen this error? What does it mean?

    What would you recommend to remove ribosomal reads?

    thanks,
    Grace

    How did you removed the reads from SAM which correspond to rRNA?

      I just looked at the coordinates of each SAM output, and removed lines that overlapped with rRNA locations, as I read in each line.

      I reasoned that since my SAM file was sorted before editing, it should have remained sorted if I just moved certain lines.

        Regarding the error message you got, there is some discussion at:http://seqanswers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3551
        If you moving out the reads (from sam file) corresponding to rRNA, you can remove them from your original fastq file (using read IDs) and then re-run the alignment.
