  • NGS seq. Analysis

    Hello,
    I have a question that i need help. i have this seq in fasta file.
    Code:
    >HG2FEE201A723Q	SAMPLE=USERID-19_JOBID-10_HG2FEE201_166281C_MID21	GENE=PR	STRAND=-	NOTRIM_LEN=512	Mean:33	Len:497	Trimmedat5':0	Trimmedat3':5 	AlignmentScore: 21630	AmpliconCoverage: 402	FullCoverage: Y

    Qustions

    1) How many genes are represented in this data and how many sequences are there for each sequenced gene.

    2) What is the average read length before and after trimming (denoted by NOTRIM_LEN and Len respectively)

    3) Are any of the DNA sequences in the file identical to each other, and if so what is the highest number of identical sequences? (Hint: sort isn’t just for numbers!)

    Do you know how this file was generated?

    It looks like this may actually be an aligned fasta format file so it would be not straight forward to identify how many duplicate sequences there were.

      I have the whole fasta file. just copied the first three lines using the BASH command: head -3.
      we were asked t use BASH commands to find the genes and sequences

        Is this an assignment?

          Paraphrasing Stack Overflow, "What have you tried so far?"

            Yes it a class assignment. That is why i put only the first three lines for a file size of about 1.6MB. what i am looking at is how to i identify and count genes within sequences of nucleotides

              This is what i have done so far:


              Put the whole sequences in one line
              awk '{printf /^>/ ? $0 :$0}' BigData1.fasta

              and break the lines using the ">" separator

              awk '{printf /^>/ ? "\n" $0 :$0}' BigData1.fasta.

              Now i can count the word occurrences using wc -w and wc -l Bash

                Hello,

                before you can start to answers your question you have to get familiar with the fileformat. Let's analyse the format you show us.

                In a fasta file each sequence information consist of a headline introduced with a ">" at the beginning and one more lines with the sequence itself. In your case it seems that sequence is only in one line.

                The headline for each sequence have several information which are arranged in columns delimited by tabs. It seems that the same informations are all in the same column number.

                So whenever we like to extract information from the header we have to look for lines that started with ">". If we are interested in the sequence we need line without ">"

                Let's have a look at your first question:

                1) How many genes are represented in this data and how many sequences are there for each sequenced gene.

                The information about the gene name is
                1. in the header line
                2. in the 3. column
                3. prefixed with "GENE="
                4. a gene name can exist multiple time


                One way to get the list of distinct name is this:

                Code:
                grep "^>" your.fasta|cut -f3|sed 's/GENE=//'|sort -u > genes.txt
                grep finds all line starting with ">", cut selects the third column, sed removes the "GENE=" leaving behind the pure gene name, sort -u sortes the names and remove duplicates.

                With this list of gene names we can answers the second part of the question. We need to iterate over the list and count the lines which contain the gennames.

                Code:
                for gene in $(cat genes.txt); do echo $gene; grep -wc "GENE=$gene" your.fasta; done|paste - -
                paste is used to show the gene name and the counts in a row.

                2) What is the average read length before and after trimming (denoted by NOTRIM_LEN and Len respectively)

                How you extract the values for each read I showed you before so I will not post a full solution here. The result of extacted each read length can be piped to awk which can calculated the average read length.

                Code:
                [extracted_read_length]|awk '{ total += $1; } END { print total/NR }'
                3) Are any of the DNA sequences in the file identical to each other, and if so what is the highest number of identical sequences? (Hint: sort isn’t just for numbers!)

                As this is a assignment I gave you just some hints. Check the manpages for grep, sort and uniq for helpful options

                  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
