  • Getting started with BAM tools

    Hi I have a question do I run BAM tools under unix or from a web browser with the applications on them.

    Very confused about how to get started.

    I see commands but I don't know where to enter them.

    Do you mean BamTools (C++)?

    Or BAM tools in the general sense, e.g. samtools, Picard, etc?

    Either way, you will need to download and install software locally - typically this means Linux or Unix (e.g. Mac OS X), but things like BAM viewers generally also work on Windows (via Java).

      Yes this sound like it..

      want to be able to take the BAM files I have on UCSC and Compare them with SNP annotators and find gaps and produce histograms of coverage so I can see areas of weakness for further investigation.

      We are starting in Next Gen so there is lots to learn but its exciting so we hope we can get to the line command stage and try things out to get the data we want.

      Where do I download the tools from and are there easy non technical instructions around.


      Thanks for the help btw.

        There are graphical viewers for SAM/BAM files, e.g. IGV and Tablet.



        Then there are command line tools for working with SAM/BAM files, e.g. samtools


        You'd best well advised to scan these forums for tips etc... but also you'll benefit in the long run from general Unix command line skills. If you are at a university, there may be some courses on this (possibly in the Computer Science department).

          We got IGV viewer working and we uploaded BAM files to UCSC Genome browser. We also managed to get a SNP track of the Seattle Seq info from the BAM files so that is why we wanted to look at BAMTools to compare what UCSC annotates as a possible change vs Seattle Seq and others.

          We also wanted a histogram of coverage and more as we go along.

          Its generally learning to manipulate cross reference and put in context our Next Gen data as it comes along.

          Here is the UCSC session to give you an idea Purple was the Seattle Seq results and you can zoom into to see a local annotation showed up lost more SNPs and UCSC even more. http://goo.gl/7o4Il

            Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
            by seqadmin




            The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

            Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
            by seqadmin


            In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
