  • Viral Alignment- ViralFusionSeq

    Hi everyone. I am a high school intern and I am working in aligning viral genomes to RNAseq data. I am very new to bioinformatics, and am still learning how to manage alignment software. I have been using the software ViralFusionSeq to locate viral integration sites. Unfortunately, I am having major technical difficulties. I am constantly getting the same error message when I try to run the sample dataset. I have installed all of the cpan modules and 3rd party software, but I still get this error:

    Thread 1 terminated abnormally: main=HASH(0x2b212422a238) at viral.fusion.pl line 621.
    Thread 2 terminated abnormally: main=HASH(0x2b212822a240) at viral.fusion.pl line 622.
    Use of uninitialized value $ReturnData[0] in join or string at viral.fusion.pl
    line 624 (#1)
    (W uninitialized) An undefined value was used as if it were already
    defined. It was interpreted as a "" or a 0, but maybe it was a mistake.
    To suppress this warning assign a defined value to your variables.

    To help you figure out what was undefined, perl will try to tell you the
    name of the variable (if any) that was undefined. In some cases it cannot
    do this, so it also tells you what operation you used the undefined value
    in. Note, however, that perl optimizes your program and the operation
    displayed in the warning may not necessarily appear literally in your
    program. For example, "that $foo" is usually optimized into "that "
    . $foo, and the warning will refer to the concatenation (.) operator,
    even though there is no . in your program.

    Use of uninitialized value $ReturnData2[0] in join or string at viral.fusion.pl
    line 627 (#1)


    Does anyone who has used this software have any ideas as to why I have this error?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi eligar97,

    Which version fo VFS did you download?

    Are you running VFS on Ubuntu system, or others?

        Hi eli, did the single thread version of VFS works?

          hi there, I am also getting somewhat similar error while running VFS (VERSION: Revision 1250) on CentOS 5 release 5.10 (Final) system. After this error SSAKE also fails. Please let me know how this can be fixed. The portions of error output are below. Thanks for the help.

            Why don't you start by including a snippet from your input files, and the exact command line you used.

              hi there, As swbarnes2 said, I've included the command ,in my question above , that I used to run vfs.
              I used the same test files provided with the software (vfs), hence, I've not included the snippets.

              Let me know if you need any other information.

              Thanks

                  hi everyone,
                  hope I'm in the right place!

                  I need to use vfs to detect fusions in my sequenced samples.

                  I am a very beginner on unix, thus im havng problems to get started:
                  I have downloaded vfs version 1289
                  I have downloaded all third party programs and hopefully everything i need to run it...

                  but!
                  I seem i might have missed the perl script to run the program...

                  any help?

                  thanks,
                  ib

                    Dear IBseq,

                    First you need to run 1.VFS.sys.check.pl to see if the dependencies can be called successfully. If you have already done that, then it is nice.

                    Then you either run viral.fusion.pl with your config file, or "2.run.example.dataset.pl" to test VFS on the example data supplied with the package.

                    Hope it helps.

                      Thanks Marco,
                      I have run 1.VFS.sys.check.pl but where can I see the output?
                      No error came up, so shall I assume everything is correctly installed with correct dependencies?

                      Thanks very much,

                        Hello everyone,
                        quick question about vfs: to save my viral genome of interest, is is enough to use the fasta file from NCBI website (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/...9?report=fasta) and replace it with the hbv4.fa? i have noticed that the viral genome that comes with the package is different..

                        any suggestion?
                        thanks,
                        ib

                          I meant different as it contains different lines. Not sure if this is specific with the hbv4 genome (which i dont know much about!)

                              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...

                              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...
