  • 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.

            Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
            by seqadmin


            The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

            Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
            by seqadmin




            The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
