  • GMAP vs GSNAP

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if someone could enlighten me as to the difference between GMAP and GSNAP, their advantages and disadvantages, and usage difference. I'm running RNA-seq data with 50 bp single-end reads, and am mostly interested in gene expression, and soon isoform expression. I've searched all the documentation, and all I've found is that GSNAP is for short reads, which to me sounds quite ambiguous.

    Also, as a side note, I was wondering what the output of GMAP is... I know GSNAP requires a redirection to another file; does GMAP write to stdout or to a new file? I'm interested in the SAM output, as my current pipelines are all set up for that format.

    Thank you greatly in advance,
    Artur

    GSNAP is what you can use for spliced mapping of Illumina 50bp single-end reads. The default output is SAM. With 50bp you will have some problems with reads spanning splice junctions, so you may be better of if you map your reads to transcriptome in an unspliced mode first, like in tophat 1.4.0.

    BTW, gsnap --help gives you more options.

    GMAP is for ESTs/cDNAs mapping, and a sensible compromise between speed and sensitivity, i.e as compared to exonerate (way slower).

      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...
