  • 454 ACE assembly with paired reads... how to view?

    Hi,

    I'm new here, thanks in advance for any help.

    I have a 454 dataset of 'allcontigs.ace'. The reads consist of paired and unpaired. If I use a viewer like Tablet, which I find very good.. I can see the paired reads in the contigs and which other contigs they are paired to etc. but I cannot see the corresponding orientation of those contigs.. I should say, I am trying to examine a 'chain' of contigs out from one of interest, none of which have been included in the scaffold (because they originate from a 16S sequence). So my question is.. is there a viewer I can use which will show the contigs and their relative orientation, based on the paired reads they share?

    I have tried several so far with no luck.

    Thanks very much,

    S.

    What viewers have you tried?

    Have you tried Hawkeye, it is part of the Amos package?

      Hi,

      I tried Eagle, Consed (couldn't install), Tablet, Magicviewer. Tablet does show the orietation of each paired read.. The more I think about it, that should be enough, but it would be nice to view the 'joined' contigs together. I will try amos.

      Thanks,

      S.

        If you want to edit the assembly (e.g. move contigs around etc.) I'd recommend consed. Installation is not really complicated and very well documented. Newbler, gsAssembler, is able to produce a complete consed folder. This has to be checked before the actual (denovo) assembly.

        If it is just for viewing the paired reads information / contig layout, Hawkeye is the way to go :-)

        my 2p,
        Sven

          Thanks Sven, I followed the consed docs on installation and wasted a day in the attempt.. error after error.. so don't have time for it. Need results. I'll try the other progs.
          Thx again.

            You'd have to convert your assembly into SAM/BAM if you want Tablet (or most other assembly viewers) to show the pairing. That conversion might be possible with GAP5...

            Also Newbler had some experimental BAM output support - I'm not sure if it was ever properly finished and working though.

              hey, thanks. yes I thought I'd need to convert it but that prob means doing the assembly again and I'll have to fish out the paired and unpaired reads (mixed in the. sff) But I'll get around to it.
              Thanks for the advice.

                You could also try 454 assembly with MIRA4 which has SAM output (or you can convert MIRA's own output into SAM).

                  There are quite a few options to "optimize" this process ... but it's always a problem, when there is no time and things just "need to get done"..

                  But I agree, .. with MIRA4 you gain more flexibilty. E.g. Staden's gap4/5 :-)

                    The other option is to hunt for a working ACE to SAM/BAM converter which handles the paired information - people have tried this before but I'm not sure if there is a complete solution.

                      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...

                      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...
