    cat junctions_file1.bed junction_file_2.bed junction_file_3.bed| tbed2juncs | combineJuncs > combined.juncs

    combine.juncs will be a BED file and contains all of the junctions from the junction files with the score the sum of the junction scores. The names of the junctions are the locations of the two nucleotides at the edges of the exons that are joined together.
    great work! Thank you roryk.

    I'm new just thought I'd try helping. Apparently it isn't the bed file format I am familiar with.

Upload the files (probably as file format tabular) you want to combine and then use the 'Concatenate queries' tool found under Text Manipulation. There's probably a short script out there to combine them, but this should work for what you want to do too.

    Thanks for your reply, Brandon! I guess I didn't make myself clear but I need something considerably more sophisticated than concatenating multiple text files, especially considering what each field of the junctions.bed file means.

    Hi Cole,

    I am aware of the bed_to_juncs script but when converting BED files to .junc files, it doesn't preserve the score and overhang information that I would like to combine. BTW, could you confirm if my understanding of the score field in BED files is correct? Thanks a lot!

    started a topic How to combine junctions.bed files produced by TopHat

    How to combine junctions.bed files produced by TopHat

    Hi,

    Basically I would like to double check before writing my own script to do so. Since I need to pool together samples with different read lengths, I have to run TopHat separately for them (using the -j option wherever appropriate). I already know how to merge the resulting .sam files with samtools and generate a combined coverage.wig file. Before putting effort to combine the junctions.bed files, I would like to know:

    1. If there are tools/scripts to do this already, either within TopHat or outside.

    2. If none, I would like to confirm if the score field of the junctions.bed file is simply the number of uniquely mapping reads that are aligned to the junction, or if muitlreads are also counted/weighted.

    Please feel free to share your knowledge/experience/comments. Thanks a lot!

    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...
