  • Bowtie cant read my csfasta file !

    Hi everyone,

    I have a color space fasta file and i have created the index files using bowtie-build. I ran bowtie using

    /share/bin/bowtie/bowtie -a -v2 -C --sam -f 0604_refMrna_index GFP_plus_20091102_F3.csfasta

    It complains of:
    Error: reads file does not look like a FASTA file
    Command: /share/bin/bowtie/bowtie -a -v2 -C --sam -f 0604_refMrna_index GFP_plus_20091102_F3.csfasta

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks,
    Abby

    Hi Abby,

    Could you please post the output of 'bowtie --version' (so we know exactly what version you're using) and give a snippet of the CSFASTA file that Bowtie's complaining about?

    Thanks,
    Ben

      Ben,

      my csfasta file had

      # Tue Nov 24 17:11:31 2009 /share/apps/corona/bin/filter_fasta.pl --output=/data/results/solid0171/solid0171_20091102/SarahS_mix

      I was playing with this file and finally figured out that removing the commented lines make it work. Thank you. I have another quick question what options will help me get the position numbers where the reads map to ? right now i am using :

      -C -f --sam --sam-nosq --al <filename> .

      Thanks,
      Abby

        Hi Abby,

        Oops, OK, I'll take a look at that. Comment lines *should* be handled gracefully, so that's a bug.

        See the Bowtie manual (and, if more details is needed, the SAM specification) for how to interpret the SAM output columns. The name and offset for the reference aligned to are in the third and fourth columns respectively.

        Thanks,
        Ben

            A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
            by seqadmin


            ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

            Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
            by seqadmin
            Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

            The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes

            AVITI from Element Biosciences: Latest Sequencing Technologies—Part 6
            by seqadmin
            Element Biosciences made its sequencing market debut this year when it released AVITI, its first sequencer. The AVITI System uses avidity sequencing, a novel sequencing chemistry that delivers higher quality data, decreases cycle times, and requires lower reagent concentrations. This new instrument reportedly features lower operating and start-up costs while maintaining quality sequencing.

            Read type and length
            AVITI is a short-read benchtop sequencer that also offers an innovative...
