  • Looking for positive selection pipeline suggestions

    I need to set up some large scale assessments of lots of predicted transcripts from transcriptome assemblies for tests of positive selection. Does anyone have any specific suggestions on preferred approaches/tools for generating lots of multiple sequence aligns and running tests for positive selection on them (i.e. PAML)? Basically, I would like to take an input sequences, generate a multiple sequence alignment for it with genes from a selected group of species, clean-up and filter those MSAs for any downstream difficulties (i.e. end-trimming of alignments or dealing with gap) and then, given a tree for these species, test that alignment for positive selection (presumably using PAML). I have found a couple automated approaches to multiple sequence alignment editting/optimization (which is probably the part I'm most concerned about getting right automating) as well as looked into just programming it all myself in BioPython, but I would be curious to hear about any experiences/suggestions anyone would have with regard to this issue and if they have found a tools that they like with regard to this type of application.

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions.

    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...
