  • Cufflinks hg19 vs hg19_Broad_variant

    I am trying to use Cufflinks (Cuffquant and Cuffnorm) to generate gene/transcript expression levels from the CCLE RNAseq data on cghub. The RNAseq data is provided as bam files aligned to genome assembly hg19_Broad_variant. The transcriptome assembly I would like to use is based on hg19/GRCh37. I have not found much information on hg19_Broad_variant to understand how different it is from hg19/GRCh37.

    Do I need to convert the CCLE bam files to hg19/GRCh37 before putting them through a Cufflinks workflow? Or is hg19_Broad_variant close enough that it will work without conversion?

    If I have to convert to hg19/GRCh37, is it possible to liftOver bam files? Or do I have to do bam->fastq using hg19_Broad_variant, then start over with alignment to hg19/GRCh37?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    HG19_Broad_variant

    This is the explanation I received from the Broad:

    The file is essentially what UCSC uses for the HG19 primary assembly plus EBV.

    All the files we submit have a sequence dictionary that clearly gives
    the accession numbers for all of the sequences. In addition it
    contains a URL to the broad's public FTP site for the fasta file.

      So I guess that the gene coordinates do not change between UCSC hg19 and hg19_broad. Am I right?
      Thanks a lot!

        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.”

        A major leap in the field has
