  • Can I compare RNA-Seq contigs data with genome data

    Hi,

    I obtained an old data of RNA-Seq contigs but without raw reads. And my boss wants me to find if those contigs can be comparable with the relative reference genome (which is annotated)

    What program or strategy I should use to analyse those contigs? Maybe , I could better annotate them?

    Thanks in advance!

    You could use BLAT to align the RNA-Seq contigs to the reference genome.

      Thanks a lot! Let me check it out first.

        Blat, provided both species are highly related (>95%). Otherwise, blast to give you an idea of your species in relation to the sequenced species. If you use blast, you will get multiple alignments to the same gene in the genome because blast can't extend alignments over the introns.

          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...

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          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...
