    Does any one know how to output the percent identity for each alignment using the MUSCLE command line?

    A bigger problem with muscle is that it not aware of rearrangement. It would be much better to use a proper whole-genome aligner such as Mauve. MUMmer is not ideal because it does not do multiple alignment.

    Perhaps use concatenated housekeeping genes?

    e.g. here:

    1. Science. 2006 Mar 3;311(5765):1283-7.

    My advice would be to align them with MUMmer, filter the alignment with the program delta-filter (if necessary), and then produce easier to parse formats with the show-coords and show-aligns programs. From there, it should take just a little scripting to get the format you want.

    Alternatively, you may be able to create a pairwise alignment and add sequences one at a time with MAFFT, but I'm not sure how that will work for whole genomes. Either way, I'm afraid that trying to align whole genomes with MUSCLE is not going to be a very successful exercise.

    From MUSCLE's manual

    Use –log or –loga and –*verbose and check the log file to see if there are any messages that give you a hint about the problem. Look at the peak memory requirements (reported in progress messages) to see if you may be exceeding the physical or virtual memory capacity of your computer.

    Because I need Phylip format file for building phylogenetic tree, which can not be produced by Mauve. I am not sure whether MUMer can generate the Phylip file. Do you know that?

    I'm wondering why you're trying to do whole genome alignments with muscle instead of something like Mauve or MUMmer which are designed specifically for such purposes?

    The Muscle alignment

    Hi,

    I am trying to use Muscle to do alignment of 12 bacterial genomes in Linux 64bit OS, which was installed by Virtual Box in Win 7. However, I got the problem showed as follow:

    root@xxxx-VirtualBox:/home/xxxx/Downloads# muscle -in 12core_genome_nodash.fasta -out 12core_MUSCLE.afa -maxiters 2

    MUSCLE v3.8.31 by Robert C. Edgar


    This software is donated to the public domain.
    Please cite: Edgar, R.C. Nucleic Acids Res 32(5), 1792-97.

    12core_genome_nodash 12 seqs, max length 4249046, avg length 4248840
    00:02:20 305 MB(-41%) Iter 1 100.00% K-mer dist pass 1
    00:02:20 305 MB(-41%) Iter 1 100.00% K-mer dist pass 2
    Killed11 7468 MB(-1004%) Iter 1 9.09% Align node


    It seems that such problem would be due to the running out of memory. However, I assigned 16GB memory to my Virtualbox, which should be enough for MUSCLE as showed here (7468MB).

    Could anyone tell me how to solve this problem?

    Thanks a lot!

    -Victor

    Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
    by seqadmin


    New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
