  • Bismark_methylation_extractor problem

    I am getting the following error running bismark_methylation_extractor:

    bismark_methylation_extractor --bedGraph --counts SS116_S1_L001_R1_001.fastq.gz_bismark_bt2_pe.bam
    .......
    Failed to open filehandle: Too many open files at /opt/bismark_v0.14.5/bismark2bedGraph line 266, <IN> line 145753.

    My guess is that the program is only designed to work with "nice" reference genomes where the assemblies consist of just a few chromosomes (scaffolds).

    Aside from concatenating multiple scaffolds and deconvoluting the results afterward, does anyone know of a work-around?

    The easiest workaround is to increase your file handle limit, if it's not already at the max.

      Code:
      --scaffolds/--gazillion  Users working with unfinished genomes sporting tens or even hundreds of thousands of
                               scaffolds/contigs/chromosomes frequently encountered errors with pre-sorting reads to
                               individual chromosome files. These errors were caused by the operating system's limit
                               of the number of filehandle that can be written to at any one time (typically 1024; to
                               find out this limit on Linux, type: ulimit -a).
                               To bypass the limitation of open filehandles, the option --scaffolds does not pre-sort
                               methylation calls into individual chromosome files. Instead, all input files are
                               temporarily merged into a single file (unless there is only a single file), and this
                               file will then be sorted by both chromosome AND position using the Unix sort command.
                               Please be aware that this option might take a looooong time to complete, depending on
                               the size of the input files, and the memory you allocate to this process (see --buffer_size).
                               Nevertheless, it seems to be working.

        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
