  • Rfam/infernal help running

    Hi all,

    I am trying to use rfam to search for sequence homologs to many small RNAs (read lists of about 50,000 sequences).

    I have successfully installed infernal and downloaded the rfam database. I am unclear on if/how I need to prepare the rfam database using cmbuild, cmcalibrate, and cmsearch. (I saw this in a tutorial for searching a sequence database with a single covariance model). When I tried this, cmbuild worked but cmcalibrate gave an error. Or, is rfam already in the correct format? If so, what are the steps to run a search? Or can you point me to the appropriate tutorial?

    Any help on how to run rfam using infernal would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks very much,
    Claire

    What exactly is the error?

    Running it is easy, if you use the perl script provided at the website (rfam_scan.pl).

    Command:
    perl rfam_scan.pl -blastdb /home/Data/RFAM/Rfam.fasta -o /home/Data/RFAM_output.txt --bt 0.0001 --nobig /home/Data/RFAM/Rfam.cm /home/Data/input.fasta

    (evalue: empirical from my site; --nobig: Doesn't scan for the big rRNA subunits; rnammer is way faster for that)

      Hi Claire,

      if you have downloaded the Rfam.cm from the Rfam website (ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/Rfam/12.0/), then you only have to run cmpress on the Rfam.cm file to prepare it for cmscan (infernal v1.1).
