  • BLAST - plus/minus strand - non coding region information

    Hi

    First of all thanks for looking into my post. I need to seek information about non protein coding regions in the reverse strand, using either BLAST or any other tools.

    For example if I have a gene ADHB14B (rat species), I use its fasta sequence to run BLAST and then go into the alignments output and trace the plus/minus strands to find out how many non-coding regions/transcripts are there. Then map for each of those transcripts (if non-coding) to find out if they are snoRNA, psuedogenes, miRNA, or any other type of non coding rnas.

    Is it possible to automate this process, because I have over ~18000 genes to assess for their noncoding regions on their complementary strand. Its physically very difficult to do for each one of them.

    Any inputs on this would be highly appreciated. Thanks once again.

    Well, you could first blastx against a protein db (like nr or refseq_protein or whatever) and choose tabular output. From that you'll parse the information about hit regions. Next you find a clever way to select the non-hit regions from your files and blastn those against some ncRNA db (perhaps one you combine from all available ncRNA dbs?).

      Thanks so much for the useful input. Though I have one more question - to blastx against a protein db, is there an automated way to do for 1800 + genes.

      thanks again for your time on this.

        Yes. You just install Blast, read the manual very carefully, set up your databases, and run it. Then you learn enough bash so that you can parse your results file.

          Thanks again so much. I am excited, can't wait to see the results.

            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...

            Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
            by seqadmin



            While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
