  • Big question - Transcriptome annotation

    Hi guys,

    I have just finished to assemble my transcriptome ( I used Trinity, N50 is 2000, I am quite happy with it).
    Now I would like to annotate it, particularly for doing some SNPs calling and want to know if they fall in CDSs or UTRs (I am using 6 populations, also looking for some good pipeline if you know one that uses transcriptomes).

    I am aware of Trinotate, but is there something more "easy" or straightforward?

    Cheers

    Perhaps Pedant is of interest ? http://pedant.gsf.de/

    Otherwise, Blast2go is quite simple but in my experience not too great.

    If you have a reference genome, perhaps map to that with gmap and use maker to annotate the whole thing.

      Tanks for the reply colindaven,

      (forgot to mention) unfortunately there is no reference genome... therefore I need to get the transcriptome annotated as accurate as possible for the pop gen analyses

      Cheers

        You may want to use Annocript. It was just published on Bioinformatics and permits annotation of any type of transcriptome (both nucleotides and peptides). It is a pipeline that runs BLAST programs and gives the best HIT against SwissProt and TrEMBL or UniRef, CDD domains, rFam. Moreover it also presents which transcripts could be putative lncRNAs. It gives a lot of outputs: a complete table with the annotation, plots and statistics, blast output in GFF3 format, fasta file with the putative coding and long non coding sequences.

        The program is straightforward to use and open source. Freely downloadable at:

        github.com/frankMusacchia/Annocript

        There you will also find some plugins to make differential expression analyses starting from a table with raw counts and the output of Annocript.

          Thanks Frank!

          Although I have almost done with the analyses now, I'll have a look and keep in mind for the future

          Cheers

            hi @frankM and @Dampor
            did you use Annocript for the annotaion of your transcriptome or some other tools? when you were doing annotaion did you use a server or just a PC would be fine? because i wanna annotate my assembled transcriptome file too. could you please tell me how you did that process?

              Hi Kurban910.
              Blast2GO should work fine for the functional annotation of an assembled transcriptome. The most time consuming step will be the blasting. You can do this locally and import the XMLs or at the NCBI. You can download Blast2GO here here and need to register for a free account here.

                thanks @sgoetz
                yeah, blast2go sure is a fine tool. finished the job already.

                  The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
                  by seqadmin



                  Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

                  Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
                  by seqadmin


                  New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
