  • Samtools seek like effect.

    Hi,
    I am currently implementing a module in c++ using samtools's c library and I seem to encounter many problems in trying to implement a Seek like effect for the bamfile. I have browse through everything I though would help within samtools without success.

    I am using bam_plp_next and bam_plp_next to do a continuous read of the bamfile but I want to be able to say : Seek(int chrmTid); or something like that and then continue reading from the first available position of this chromosome.

    Every function that access the index file is of the form
    Code:
    bam_iter_t bam_iter_query(const bam_index_t *idx, int tid, int beg, int end);
    where beg and end are positions in this chromosome.

    My question is : Is there a way that I can achieve the described functionality while only providing a tid and a beginning position?

    What I use currently is the above mentionned function which I provide with 0 as beg position and arbitrairy 15000 as end.

    You should be able to get the full length of the references from the BAM header (I'm sure there is an API for that), and then you don't have to guess.

      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...
