  • Automating intron discovery in EST-derived gene models

    So, yes, I have a large number of gene models that are derived from EST data. That is, the coding sequence is correct but any introns will be missing. I also have a bunch of 454 genomic sequence (enriched for the particular genes) which will enable me to find the introns.

    Obviously I can just map the raw 454 genomic sequence to the gene models to find where introns are, and I have done this. However I don't really want to do it manually for each gene model.

    I was thinking to derive some sort of consensus sequence from the genomic sequence mapped onto the (reference sequence) gene model, with a large tolerance for introducing gaps in the gene model (which would be introns). At a bit of a loss as to how to do this. Any suggestions on how to automate this process?

    I was trying to do a very similar thing a few years back, and initially I tried mapping my ESTs to the genomic data use est2genome and then trying to interpret the gene structure. In short, I ended up using Scipio (not the web-based version) and it worked very well. Just pick a closely related species' genome if your species of interest has not been sequenced yet.

      Hi,I am using scipio now,according to the manual, I need to use perl script scipiogff2gff.pl to convert the file format to .gff, but I can't find it...
      can you help me?
      Many thanks

        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...
