  • Help with variant calling pipeline

    Hi,

    I could really use some help with my variant calling pipeline. I have illumina reads from outbreak bacterial strains, mapped to a reference using bwa, sorted and filtered for quality snps using vcftools and my output are .vcf files for each genome.

    My research question in this instance is quite specific, how many snps do my genomes differ by?

    I know what I would like to do - create a pair wise snp matrix for all genomes showing snp differences. My ideal output would be a table like this

    Sample 1 sample 2 sample 3

    Sample 1 0 4 12

    Sample 2 4 0 1

    Sample 3 12 1 0

    I have a feeling it requires a custom Python script or programming in R?

    Any help, advice or comments would be very much appreciated

    Al'Thor
    Thanks

    Assuming your vcf files contain only the filtered SNPs of a single strain you are interested in, you could try:

    Code:
    # Get number of different (!) SNPs of two vcfs
    cat 1.vcf  2.vcf | grep -v '^#' | awk '{print $1,$2,$4,$5}' | sort | uniq -u | wc -l
    Depending on the number of strains you have, it would of course be helpful/necessary to write a loop.

      There are a number of tools for filtering VCFs; several are listed in this thread.

          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...
