  • Adding Blastx Hits to un-identified genes in StringTie Output

    Hi all,

    I've been using a general pipeline of Hisat2 -> StringTie -> Ballgown for differential gene expression analysis in a non-model organism. Using RefSeq annotations during StringTie assembly has been an effective way to add gene/transcript names, but because my study species lacks a well-annotated genome, I have a lot of "mystery" genes (I think) that I would like to identify, as many have interesting expression patterns.

    To this end, I merged assemblies across all treatment groups/biological replicates, then ran Blastx on that assembly against Swissprot/Uniprot db to see if I could uncover the identity of any of the mystery genes. But I'm stuck now as how to use that blastx output -- other than manually searching and matching Blastx hits to individual genes by the "MSTRG" id's, which would be laborious for ~1000 hits, I'm not sure how to move forward.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
    by seqadmin


    ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

    Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
    by seqadmin
    Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

    The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
