  • removing chromosomes from a bam file.

    I'm trying to upload a bam file, from an alignment to GRCh38 that I've done, to a google genomics dataset, associating it with the reference set for GRCh38. The reason it fails given in the logfile reads:

    Code:
    reference names must be a subset of those of the requested
        reference set: missing ["chr1" "chr10" "chr11" "chr11_KI270721v1_random" "chr12"
        "chr13" "chr14" "chr14_GL000009v2_random" "chr14_GL000194v1_random" "chr14_GL000225v1_random" ...
    It goes on to list another 40 or so fragments. If I do a quick

    Code:
    samtools idxstats cal1.bam
    I do indeed get a whole bunch of chromosome fragments listed. The best I can come up with is that the referenceset on google genomics doesn't like all the fragments, thus the reference names must be a subset message.
    The obvious workaround to test this, is to remove those chromosomes from the bam file. Unfortunately,

    Code:
    samtools view -b cal1.bam chr1 chr2 chr3 > cal-sub-1.bam
    samtools index cal-sub-1.bam cal-sub-1.bai
    samtools idxstats cal-sub-1.bam
    returns a bam file that indeed, removes all the reads from the fragments from the bam file. It still lists the actual fragments though, which in turn, when I try and load to the google genomics dataset, gives me the same error.

    How to I remove all references to the fragments from the bam file? Or is that not what the googlegenomics upload is objecting to.

    Thanks
    Ben.

    Did you check the headers from the subset BAM files? Those may still contain the offending chromosomes.

      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...
