  • Best tool for the job (noob question)

    What are the best tools for aligning a query against a target with the following characteristics? I had previously tried bowtie but only got 6% alignment when over 90% was expected:

    Query file:
    > Format: multisequence fasta
    > Number of sequences: 180,099
    > Minimum sequence length: 69 bases
    > Maximum sequence length: 1,045 bases
    > Average sequence length: 825 bases
    > Number of Ns in file: 158,231
    > Longest N stretch: 363
    > Number of sequences containing N: 59,998
    Target file:
    > Number of sequences: 1,168
    > Minimum sequence length: 1,028 bases
    > Maximum sequence length: 63,086,992 bases
    > Average sequence length: 843,760 bases
    > Number of Ns in file: 18,289,543
    > Longest N stretch: 1,185,460
    > Number of sequences containing N: 771

    If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    How about trying BLAT? It may be slow, but in this situation it may give you proper sensitivity.

      Would bwa work? I need gapped alignments which bowtie cannot do, and I'd also like to get SAM-format output.

        Since the query is up to 1Kb I would try the "bwa bwasw" command, though I have not tried it. You might have to split your queries into long and short ones. Anyone else have any advice?

          It looks right now like bfast may be my best bet. I noticed bwa doesn't allow paired-end reads for sequences longer than ~200bp.

            Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
            by seqadmin




            The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

            Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
            by seqadmin


            In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
