  • MEME for large datatset

    Hi,
    I am using MEME without any problem for input dataset of about 6 million bases. Whereas I am facing problem in datatset of about 17 million. The program halts mid-way without giving any error message.
    In both cases the -maxsize is set to 150000000 and -motifs=1.
    If it is the problem with data size should i use an alternative to MEME or is it ok if I split the input fasta file into 3 or 4 fasta files and run them individually.

    It would be really great if anybody could help me with this

    Not that I've ever used this program, but did you try running it in verbose mode (quick check on documentation states that you do this by "-V")?

      Thank you for your response.
      The -V option was not helpful.

        Hi,
        maybe I am late. But i think splitting the file is not an option. MEME does EM so you will change background frequencies and therefore the EM-Value itself. The only way this won't happen is when the letter frequencies [A,C,G,T] are the same within all generated files which hardly will be the case.

        I would look for an alternative.

        Hope that helps,

        best

          Hi,
          Thanks a lot for your reply.
          You are right. Splitting the file is not an option.

          I was trying with meme-chip which can handle large data.
          meme-chip by default takes random 600 sequences of 100bp each. But this is not what is required.

          So, I set -ccut to 0 and -nmeme to 6623. But meme-chip throws an error "Dataset too large (> 100000). Rerun with larger -maxsize."
          meme-chip does not have an option to set -maxsize

          No. of sequences - 6623
          Maximum length - 9925
          minimum length - 367

            hey,

            try to check: http://www.biostars.org/p/57125/ or http://nar.oxfordjournals.org/conten...ar.gkr574.full.

              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...
