  • Consensus Calling BCFTOOLS PacBio gaps

    Dear community,
    I mapped reads from targeted sequencing (PacBio ccs) to a reference (BMA mem - local alignment because I got inverse PCR reads). Most often the complete reference is not covered. I'd like to get one consensus sequence, since the second variant will never show up (diploid organism). My aim is to get something like this:
    ATTTGATTTAGG-ATTGT-----------------ATGCTTCGTAT-T
    At the moment
    1. Seems like gaps are filled by the reference which I like to avoid
    2. looking at one locus in IGV I found that in one position the reference has an A, my reads are 172 gap, 2 C, 2 A, 1 T and mpileup is calling a T???!

    Here are the commands I use:
    Code:
    system "bcftools mpileup -x -P Pacbio -e 5 -f $ARGV[0].fasta $ARGV[0].sort.bam|bcftools call -m -Oz -o $ARGV[0].TESTvcf.gz";
    #-M output site where REF allele is N
    system "tabix $ARGV[0].TESTvcf.gz";
    system "cat $ARGV[0].fasta | bcftools consensus $ARGV[0].vcf.gz > $ARGV[0].cns.TESTfa"
    Could anybody help me which parameters I have to change (I also tried -M)? I tried a few but nothing gave me the output I expected.

    Thanks in advance!

    Please help me people, is the question to simple or do the 120 readers have no idea as well?

      Okay, I now might know why bcftools fails (to many real gaps in long reads which might be sorted out then). Any other suggestions? I do not find an up to date best practice for GATK3/4 or did anyone of you ever used freebayes for issues like that?

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
