  • 8 column output file from SAMtools mpileup

    Hi all,

    First let me briefly describe what I am trying to do. I have Illumina reads (ezRAD and Illumina MiSeq), from which I want to identify putative neutral and adaptive SNPs. Here's what I have done so far:

    - trimmed the reads for adaptors and quality with FASTQC toolkit
    - inported the reads into GALAXY
    - groomed the reads so that they were converted from phred+64 to phred+33
    - mapped these reads onto my reference genome (L. gigantea) with BWA-MEM with default parameters
    - cleaned the output BAM files with CleanSAM in SAMtools using the strict option
    - filtered the BAM files to remove alignments with MAPQ < 15, using Filter SAM tool under SAMtools in Galaxy
    - Merged my BAM files so all of my samples were combined, using merge BAM tool under SAMtools in Galaxy, with default parameters
    - performed an Mpileup on the merged BAM file using SAMtools, where I did not perform genotype likelihood computation, with the same reference genome and basic parameters

    After performing the Mpileup, I got a pileup output file that looks like this (only showing the 1st two lines):

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
    LOTGIsca_18122 322 T 0 185
    LOTGIsca_18122 323 A 0 186

    Now I am very confused, as I thought pileup output files were either 5 or 10 columns, and I have 8... Also, I tried to filter the pileup output file with VARSCAN, using default parameters, and I get an output file with 0 lines.

    Any input on what I have done, or what I should rather do instead would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Which version of samtools are you using in Galaxy? If you look at the top of the page for it in Galaxy, you'll see something like "(Galaxy Version 2.1.1)".

      Hi,

      I am using Galaxy 16.04.rc1 -I'm not sure how to use another version..

        The version of the tool, not the version of Galaxy itself (the two are independent). Like I said, click on the tool and see what tool version is printed at the top of the page.

          @erica.n: Are you using public galaxy server at Penn State or a local/other mirror elsewhere?

            Hi,

            Sorry I am using SAMtools v.2.1.1 and VarScan v.0.1

            And I am on the galaxy server at Penn State.

            thanks!

              By merging the bam files, you are going to collapse them all into one "sample" in the view of mpileup. Is that what you want? When we process RAD-type data we give it a list of bam files, one per sample.

              The mpileup format is:
              chromosome, 1-based coordinate, reference base, the number of reads covering the site, read bases and base qualities.
              I see a chromosome, coordinate (322), ref base (T), # of reads (0)
              LOTGIsca_18122 322 T 0 185

              Is the option to report read position on? That might explain the 185, 186 in your output, although with 0 reads it would have to be a low quality base that is not shown but the position is.

                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.”
