  • converting mirDB target ids to ensembl ids

    Hi,

    I have about 3000 miRNA targets from miRDB. I am needing to convert the target identifiers into Ensembl ids (mouse btw). About 2k of these convert using biomaRt in R. The other 1k I am not sure how to handle programmatically as I can't figure out what id type they are.

    Most convert using either refseq_mrna (Refseq mRNA ID(s) [e.g. NM_001195244]) or refseq_mrna_predicted (Refseq Predicted mRNA ID(s) [e.g. XM_889253])

    An example of one that doesn't convert: "NM_001042565". Looking this up in Ensembl via the main search I get "novel transcript (Mouse Transcript)". So I know it is there. I have taken the identifier and tried to convert it using Ensembl's BioMart using the filter option with most of the gene/transcript looking options and do not get anything back.

    What filter option should I use to get all the miRDB target id's to convert to Ensembl IDs???

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Took a quick look at both Ensembl and Ncbi considering the transcript "NM_001042565". I tried its gene "Wsb1" to get all the transcript information.

    NM_001042565.3 = ENSMUST00000017821 (Wsb1-001)
    NM_019653.3 however, has no corresponding Ensembl transcript.

    This would probably be why NM_001042565 doesn't get converted, since biomart would not contain an id-id mapping information for such transcript.

    Anyway, what does the original "miRDB target id" look like?

      Hi,

      thanks for the reply. That is the target id. From miRDB:

      mmu-miR-669f-3p NM_001042565 99.7800236967459

      I suppose I could get around the ensembl id's by using gene name, but I still need a way to bulk convert the id's to gene names.

        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...
