  • align short query against 300M Illumina reads

    Hi,

    I have 8 short (~60nt) query sequences which I want to align to roughly 300M Illumina reads (100bp). Criteria are:

    - Allow a few mismatches (< 8)
    - Gaps are not allowed.
    - Alignment should span the entire query.
    - Report all matches, NOT just the best one.

    Do any programs exists that can accomplish this task? I was thinking BWA, or other next-gen read mappers, but these usually work with whole genomes as their database and reads as the query. The case I have here is somewhat different and may not work with these programs.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Using Bioconductor

    You can simply do it in R.

    1. Install the Biostrings package

    source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
    biocLite("Biostrings")

    2. Load the Biostrings package

    library(Biostrings)

    3. Use the matchPattern function. To get a detailed help page for it, type :

    ?matchPattern

    You'll see it has all of the options that you need for your example.

    matchPattern(pattern, subject, max.mismatch=0, min.mismatch=0, with.indels=FALSE, fixed=TRUE, algorithm="auto")

      Thanks. I'll give it a go.

        Blat should work for this too: http://genome.ucsc.edu/FAQ/FAQblat.html#blat3

          I am currently trying BLAT. Cannot build a database that large so splitting the 300M reads into subsets.

            FYI, BLAT worked well. I created a series of databases, each containing 7.5 million reads.
