  • Tool for Human to Gorilla alignment

    Hi all,

    I have 400 human seqs to align to Gorilla and Chimp. Tried UCSC and got a useful alignment for Chimp but the Gorilla one has supercontigs rather than chromosome numbers

    I have to add 2kb to the aligned seqs and then pass to another tool. But his is not possible with just having supercontigs numbers! So I am looking for an alternative.

    Any idea or thought would be much appreciated,
    Avazeh

    Would you mind to provide more details?
    What's the tool you used to do the aignment? liftover?
    What's the nature of your data?

      Sure:

      I have 400 human seqs, each between 2kb to 4kb. I need to map them to Gorilla and Chimp and then look for motifs in the extended alignments found. Submitted the regions to UCSC table browser and downloaded conservation in Comparative Genome group, using Multiz Align option to get the sequences in the alignments too. Unfortunately these alignment are just available on gorGOR1 which is the first Gorilla build and contains contig number rather than chromosome number! So I really don't know where on Gorilla genome they hit and cannot extend it to do motif analysis

      I need to align my regions to Gorilla's 2011 built, gorGOR3, in which the supercontigs are resolved into chromosomes.

      Any help is appreciated

        gorGOR3 is available from Ensembl, so I would recommend just downloading the fasta files and aligning to them.

          If all sequences are form human, I would suggest use reciprocal liftover approach.
          1. download liftover program from UCSC.
          2. download liftover chain files: both of human to gorilla and gorilla to human. You can find them under the genome file download pages.
          3. mapping the sequences to human genome, and get the coordination in bed format.
          4. convert human bed to gorilla genome by liftover, allow multiple convertion.
          5. convert the converted gorilla bed file back to human genome, also multiple loci allowed.
          6. filtered the results that the gorilla and human could be converted reciprocally.
          That's the protocol I think relatively reliable.

              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...
