  • 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.

          The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
          by seqadmin



          Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

          Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
          by seqadmin


          New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

          A major leap in the field has
