    Dear Nash,

    You may try out the Subread aligner (http://subread.sourceforge.net), which can align reads as long as 1200bp.

    Cheers,
    Wei

    blasr output

    Mark,

    That's great to know....I have printed out the help pages, but there are still unanswered questions for me...would you like to take this discussion offline or do you want me to post the questions right here? If there's a special PacBio support site for blasr, I can reach you through that...Please let me know your convenience. Thanks much,

    Nash

    Any help available in this forum?

    You could say I'm pretty familiar with blasr output (I'm the author).

    Most of the help may be found by running blasr -h, or blasr -help for detailed help. There are many output formats including tabular ones for which you can get column labels with the -header option, human readable output (-m 0), and sam (specified by -sam).

    A quicker refined flavour of BLAT is BFAST :http://www.plosone.org/article/info:...l.pone.0007767

    blasr compilation

    Mark,

    Am trying to compile blasr on my machine and am missing some header files in the tar file distribution. Can you please point me to sources who can help me or provide the *.h files needed? Thanks much,

    Nash

    bwa sw aligns fasta sequences.

    You will want the bas.h5 files since they have additional information about subread coordinates.

    Thank you Mark...I don't have access to hd5 files yet....they are with the core sequencing facility and I am not sure they will give me those right now.... But I am working with them to gradually get some of the pipeline tools locally on my new Ubuntu machine that still needs memory upgrades before I can run your pipeline tools...

    Hi Nash,
    You can install blasr on your own using github (https://github.com/PacificBiosciences/blasr).

    If you have the hdf files, there are options (-useccsdenovo) to align the ccs sequences instead of the raw subreads.

    HTH,

    Thank you all for suggesting blat and bwa sw for aligning long reads. I am looking at the docs for bwa sw and it looks like in the command:

    bwa bwasw database.fasta long_read.fastq >aln.sam

    the parameter "database.fasta" is the reference and the parameter "long_read.fastq" is the sequence being aligned. Right?

    So does it absolutely need the fastq file or can it just work w/o the quality data, i.e., just a *.fasta file? Also how about the ccs based output from PacBio? Anybody has tried the PacBio ccs outputs? I'm trying to get "blasr" tool from PacBio pipeline installed here, but I am not there yet...

    Thanks in advance,

    Nash

    We have actually developed a fast and accurate aligner named BLASR (Basic Local Alignment with Successive Refinement) - http://www.smrtcommunity.com/SMRT-An...gorithms/BLASR to align our long reads. The source code for this as well as the full analysis software suite is freely available at the same PacBio DevNet site. A publication on this algorithm is also currently in review, so stay tuned.
    Thanks for posting. I look forward to the publication as I am also trying to map PacBio reads.

    Blat

    Agree Blat is another good option

    I used Blat to do reference based scaffolding by aligning contigs to scaffolds. So that should work with long reads I assume.

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
