  • Aligned position within a read from Samtools mpileup

    Hello,

    Is it possible to infer the aligned position within a read (1-101) of every read in the alignment from a mpileup file?

    Thanks for your input!

    Try pysam

    I dealt with a similar issue, and the solution I came to was to use pysam (python module) to parse SAM/BAM files directly, rather than trying to make sense of mpileup files after the fact. Pysam will allow you to call samtools pileup and return the results in small chunks that you can do what you want with.

    Take a look at this topic, and perhaps pysam in general. If python isn't your cup of tea, this is a general approach that other languages have implemented.



    good luck.

      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...
