  • rna-seq tiling reads

    Hi:

    I found interesting exon skip events from my rna-seq experiments. My next aim to reconstruct possible an ORF with and without exon skip.

    I tried velvet and Transdecoder. However the issue is these algorithms are constructing longest possible orf, 5' and 3'. This is not what I am looking for.

    For condition 1 -
    Given start and end of gene coordinates, considering an exon is skipped between these two points, I want to walk over reads with and without exon that is skipped in condition 2.

    Subsequently I want to translate to see if they are in coding context.

    Is there any software for such walking on rna-seq reads and reconstructing an orf.

    thanks
    Adrian

    Do you have a GTF or GFF file? If so, you could use GenomicRanges. The workflow would be something like:
    1) Load annotation
    2) Extract only the gene of interest, this just makes getting the sequences faster
    3) getSeq() to get the sequences
    4) Write the sequences of the CDS that you want for each condition to separate files

    That should be relatively straight forward if you're familiar with R.

      Hi Devon,
      Thanks for the tip. I am familiar with R.
      I will try genomicRanges.

      Thanks

        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...

        Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
        by seqadmin


        Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
