  • D. melanogaster known SNPs and indels

    I am working with the fly genome for the first time. I am trying to do realignment and recalibration, which requires known SNPs. Where can I find these (preferably for the UCSC dm3 genome)?

    I found FlySNP (http://flysnp.imp.ac.at/). That seems to be what I am looking for. However, the genome version is not specified and there seems to be no easy way to export the data.

    UCSC does not provide any SNP tracks for the fly like it does for human or mouse, which makes me a little concerned that there is no reliable resource.

    Any insights from someone with D. melanogaster experience would be greatly appreciated.

    Here are the VCF files from the DGRP: http://www.hgsc.bcm.tmc.edu/projects...013/vcf_files/

      That looks great!

      Which genome version is that? I couldn't find that info on the DGRP website.

        It is either flybase 5.something or dm3. They are the same thing, just with or without the leading chr.

          I saw that the positions are without the leading "chr", so that did not look like dm3. Thanks for clarifying that the actual coordinates should be identical.

            I've worked extensively with the DGRP and can find out which reference was used if it's vital information. My understanding, however, is that most of the revisions of the reference have been annotation and not modifications to the sequence (though I've only heard this - never checked myself).

              I assume the sequence is stable by now as this is a common organism, genome is fairly small and has not been updated in a while. However, I have no experience with the fly genome, so I am not sure if there are any caveats.

              I am trying to do recalibration, so it's fairly important that the positions are accurate.

                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...
