  • Calculating average coverage wih Pysam

    Hi,

    I have to program a program, which calculates each average at each position.

    The idea was that that program was good, but it is too slow. That is why the code must be adapted to get is faster.

    Does someone knows code for that?

    I'm not sure what you mean by average, if you talk about each position; do you mean each precise position or some kind of window?

    Have a look at "bedtools coverage" and "bedtools genomecov"; I like to use
    Code:
    bedtools genomecov -bg -split -ibam file.bam > file_coverage.bedgraph
    which gives me a BedGraph; if you use "-d" instead of "-bg" you get the read count at each and every position.

    You can get BEDTools here: http://code.google.com/p/bedtools/
    There is also a python interface for it (pybedtools), but I'm not sure whether it makes sense to use it in this case, haven't really tried it.

      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...
