  • Bowtie Index Question

    Dear all,

    I have a short question about bowtie index:

    What is the difference between these two mouse index:

    M. musculus, UCSC mm9 and M. musculus, NCBI v37

    Sorry for this, but just have no clue the difference between them.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Wei,

    They contain the same sequences, but use different sequence names. mm9 uses the UCSC naming scheme, with names like "chr1", "chr2", etc. NCBI v37 uses the NCBI naming scheme, with names like "gi|149288852|ref|NC_000067.5|NC_000067", "gi|149288852|ref|NC_000067.5|NC_000068", etc.

    Thanks,
    Ben

      Hi Ben,

      Thanks a lot for your reply and explanation!

      They were built from the same assembly: NCBI m37 mouse assembly (April 2007, strain C57BL/6J) (which is also called UCSC version mm9), right?

      And another question is these two prebuilt index were built from which version chromosome sequence Mus_musculus.NCBIM37.56 or Mus_musculus.NCBIM37.57 (according to Ensemble)? Because I have run Tophat with mm9 prebuilt index, and then I need each chromosome sequence to run other downstream program. But on Ensemble, the chromosome version has been updated from Mus_musculus.NCBIM37.56 to Mus_musculus.NCBIM37.57. In order to keep consistent with mm9 index, which version chromosome I should use?

      Thank you Ben!

        Right.

        According to those filenames, they should both be compatible with NBCI37/mm9 (that's what the "NCBIM37" part denotes). In fact, Ensembl versions going back to 47 seem to be compatible with NBCI37; you have to go back to 46 before it changes to NCBI36.

        Thanks,
        Ben

            Hi,

            I have a question about bowtie index, I though this is the right forum to post it.

            What exactly bowtie indexes?
            I've read :

            BWT (same size as T)
            Checkpoints (~15% size of T)
            SA sample (~50% size of T)

            I understand the BWT and Checkpoints, but what is SA sample?

            Thanks

            --- problem solved, 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...
