  • Application of PacBio based cDNA data in RNA-Seq analysis

    Hi Everyone

    Just wanted to know how people are using cDNA sequence data obtained from PacBio. Just curious to see and understand downstream applications in conjunction to Illumina cDNA data. Any relevant papers that you could point me to would help too.

    PS : cross posted on biostar to get more visibility and hopefully responses


    Thanks!

        I'm having trouble finding bioinformatics protocols for doing this too. The problem seems to be that most tools (scripture, PASA?, IsoInfer, Inchworm, IsoEM, NSMAP, MISO are most of what I've looked at) seem to depend on spliced alignments produced by, e.g. Tophat. But the only tools that align PacBio reads well (PB's BLASR, and BWA's bwasw command) don't produce spliced alignments, as far as I can tell.

        Let's add the terms isoform inference, alternative splicing, transcript, exon, splice junction, to improve search results for this thread.

          You might look at pacBioToCA and P_ErrorCorrection. They can be used to error correct PacBio reads using Illumina reads. Then the polished reads can be input to a wider variety of tools and you may be able to get spliced alignments.

            Hi, right now we're using GMAP to produce spliced alignments. It's a bit slow, but it is fairly sensitive for single pass raw pacbio reads (not ccs and not error corrected), and produces SAM output that is easily integrated into analysis pipelines. The only problem I've seen so far is some merging of exons.

            I'd be happy to hear of any analysis of GMAP.

            BLASR does not handle spliced alignment.

            Should I cross post on biostar?

              How RNA-Seq is Transforming Cancer Studies
              by seqadmin



              Cancer research has been transformed through numerous molecular techniques, with RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) playing a crucial role in understanding the complexity of the disease. Maša Ivin, Ph.D., Scientific Writer at Lexogen, and Yvonne Goepel Ph.D., Product Manager at Lexogen, remarked that “The high-throughput nature of RNA-seq allows for rapid profiling and deep exploration of the transcriptome.” They emphasized its indispensable role in cancer research, aiding in biomarker...

              Methods for Investigating the Transcriptome
              by seqadmin




              Ribonucleic acid (RNA) represents a range of diverse molecules that play a crucial role in many cellular processes. From serving as a protein template to regulating genes, the complex processes involving RNA make it a focal point of study for many scientists. This article will spotlight various methods scientists have developed to investigate different RNA subtypes and the broader transcriptome.
