  • Getting transcriptome sequence from RNA-seq reads in FASTA

    Hello,

    So, from Ensembl FTP, we can download a transcriptome file which is a FASTA file containing the header info, which is transcript name, chromosome position, etc. and the dna sequence itself. On the other hand, I have a FASTQ file from RNA-seq experiment.

    What I want to do is, generate the FASTA file like Ensembl transcriptome. I think I read this is called consensus FASTA.

    What I imagine the step to generate this is like this:

    1. Align the reads to the transcriptome reference, we get SAM/BAM
    2. Assemble the SAM/BAM according to coordinate
    3. Solve the occurence of SNP and indel
    4. Generate FASTA file with header information and sequence assembled from step 3

    For step 1, I know I can use bowtie2. For step 2, I don't know the tools but I think I can write my own program. The problem is step 3. I don't know how.
    In that case, probably you can suggest me well known pipeline to do this because I think this is a general things to do.

    What do you suggest for that? Thank you for your reply.

    I think you can do most of what you want (following the bowtie alignment step) with samtools, using samtools sort, index, and then mpileup.

      Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
      by seqadmin


      The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

      Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
      by seqadmin




      The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
