  • error with BWA

    I try to use BWA to align some SOLiD reads.
    1. I build the index
    bwa index -c -a is ecoli.fa

    2. I convert the csfasta and correspond qual file into fastq with solid2fastq.pl supplied by BWA(for test, very small, 50000 reads).

    3. I try to align the reads to the ref
    bwa aln -n 3 -t 4 -M 3 -c ecoli.fa t_ecoli.fastq map.sai
    It gives some strange information as follow:

    lane@LanePC[bwa] bwa aln -n 3 -t 4 -M 3 -c ecoli.fa t_ecoli.fastq map.sai
    (here are some strange symbols)
    (here are some strange symbols too)
    [bwa_aln_core] calculate SA coordinate... 0.03 sec
    [bwa_aln_core] write to the disk... ���� 0.01 sec
    [bwa_aln_core] 25000 sequences have been processed.

    But there is no output file.
    The BWA version is 0.5.9-r16
    Does anyone know why?
    Thanks a lot.

    Those "strange symbols" are your output. You need to direct stdout into the map.sai file

    Try:
    Code:
    bwa aln -n 3 -t 4 -M 3 -c ecoli.fa t_ecoli.fastq [B]>[/B] map.sai

      I've just started with BWA too.
      I think you need to include a ">" in there somewhere. If you look at the BWA manual the command should be
      bwa aln [-n maxDiff] [-o maxGapO] [-e maxGapE] [-d nDelTail] [-i nIndelEnd] [-k maxSeedDiff] [-l seedLen] [-t nThrds] [-cRN] [-M misMsc] [-O gapOsc] [-E gapEsc] [-q trimQual] <in.db.fasta> <in.query.fq> > <out.sai>

      So, maybe you could try to run
      bwa aln -n 3 -t 4 -M 3 -c ecoli.fa t_ecoli.fastq > map.sai

      I think your strange symbols are the data that should be going into the sai file but withouth the > they are being displayed in the terminal.

        YES!
        You are right. I mistaken that ">" as the one quotes the file name which is unnecessary, so I didn't type it.
        But there is another problem: I have 50000 reads, why did it only process 25000 reads? And in the final sam file no read is aligned. All the reads have a flag 4 which corresponds to unmapped.
        Thank you!

          Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
          by seqadmin


          The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

          Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
          by seqadmin




          The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
