  • Importing reference genome into Galaxy for Tophat2

    Hi,
    I am relatively new to the field of RNA-Seq analysis. I'd be very greatful if somene could help me with the following issue:

    I'm using the Galaxy Main plattform and would like to run Tophat2 on RNA-Seq data from rat. However in Main under Tophat2 there are only built-in human and mouse genomes, while a lot more genomes are vailable under Tophat for Illumina.
    I tried to import the rat genome sequence using the built-in UCSC Table browser, however I only managed to get a full genome as one FASTA file with all the different sequences. After mapping to this genome I can't see any hits when I click "display at UCSC main" on accepted hits. So I assume that the mapped reads do not conform to the official reference rat genome (rn5).

    So how can one solve this isse?
    -Is there a way to import a proper genome for use with Tophat2? Ideally directly indo Galaxy without prior download.
    -If not, how does Tophat2 differ from "Tophat for Illumina". Can one also analyze non-Illumina data with that? As I understand it Tophat2 is faster than the previous version?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    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...
