  • VCF Database

    Hi all, I am looking into a DBMS for database storage. We have analyzed VCF Files.

    1000genomes.org is your first and best source for all of the information you’re looking for. From general topics to more of what you would expect to find here, 1000genomes.org has it all. We hope you find what you are searching for!


    When I say analyzed I mean data that has been aligned with some other steps but is still in a VCF format.

    My question is does anyone have any experience with good database systems? Our problem is when you choose an indexing you may be indexing for one question and when you go to ask a different question your query may not be optimized for the next question. We are looking at systems such as Key/Value, RDBMS, Graph, and BigTable. I only have experience with RDBMS systems would be interested in hearing any and all experience on this problem. Thanks!

    I'm in the process of doing something similar, and rather than reinventing the wheel, am looking into adapting ensembl's variant database as a means of storing vcfs derived from many similar targeted sequencing projects. It's based on a MySQL database and you can get the database structure from ENSEMBL with fairly comprehensive instructions. The attraction is that they have a set of scripts that, for example automate the import process amongst other things

    If anyone has any solutions to store e contents of vcf files in a database structure, I would be interested to hear about it too

      How big is your dataset? What if you can't hold them in one physical machine? You'll scale-up or scale-out?

        small, multiple repeats of the same experiment generating a few 100's variants per sample, approx a dozen samples at a time. I would however be interested in something that can scale up to exome-sized vcfs

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

          Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
          by seqadmin


          Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
