  • How to do genome statistics from fasta and .gz file

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new in this field. Now i have 3 types of files downloaded from public database :
    (1) contigs sequence in .gz format
    (2) scaffolds sequence in .fasta format
    (3) transcriptomes sequence in .fasta format

    I don't know what are the steps i should do to get the statistics data (number of scaffolds, N50 count scaffolds, number of contigs, min length of contig, etc). I know i have to run it on linux and maybe using some perl script?

    Hani,

    You can download BBTools and run the included "stats.sh" script. In Linux, the command would be:

    stats.sh in=contigs.fasta

    But you don't HAVE to run it on Linux, you just need Java installed. In Windows, for example, if you unzip the bbtools package to "C:\bbmap\", the command would be:

    java -Xmx200m -cp C:\bbmap\current\ jgi.AssemblyStats2 in=contigs.fasta

    The tool works on fasta files whether or not they are gzipped.

      Hello Brian,

      Thank you for the reply. Is BBTools same with BBMap?
      Where should i put my .fasta file? in /current/ folder?

        Yes, BBMap and BBTools are the same package.

        You can put the fasta files anywhere, it doesn't matter, as long as you specify a path. For example, if you put a fasta files in /usr/stuff/contigs.fasta, and bbmap is at /usr/programs/bbmap/, then the command would be:

        /usr/programs/bbmap/stats.sh in=/usr/stuff/contigs.fasta

          Hello again,

          Why when i'm using stats.sh in=contigs.fasta in Linux, i get :
          -bash: stats.sh: command not found ?

            The shell script just isn't in your $PATH.

              The simplest way to resolve this is to type "./stats.sh", if you are in the same directory, or use the full absolute path otherwise.

                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...
