  • chromosome rearrangements

    Hello there,

    I'm thinking to do some paired-end sequencing on a 454. Do you know if the software that comes with the sequencer can identify chromosome rearrangements from the paired-end sequence or do we need to use the custom program.
    Has someone done this type of work already? Any recommendations, tricks?

    Thanks for you help,

    Kiki

    The 454 assembly software can identify the paired-end information from the reads, but what you mean chromosome rearrangements ?

      chromosome rearrangements

      Hello,
      By chromosome rearrangements, I mean the cases where both paired-end sequences, don't match the reference genome sequence at the same place.
      For example one paired-end sequence matches on the expected location but the other paired-end sequence matches on another chromosome and on the same chromosome but much further away than expected. In these cases, we have a translocation and an insertion, respectively.
      I talked to a 454 rep and it seems that the software doesn't do that and that we need a custom program to parse the paired-end sequencing data.
      Has someone done this type of work?

      Cheers.

        That‘s interesting.
        As i know,Each 454 Long Paired End Sequencing reads contains a mate paired_end information, and the distance between a mate pair is about 3kb. So you can split a paired_end read into two parts, then seach from the reference genome one by one using blast, if one of the two parts can matches the genome more than one, then probably we got a insertion. And if the two parts can match two different genome, we got a rearrangements.

          You could use cross_match to detect the 44mer linker sequence and then use some perl to split the read into mates. Then you can use nucmer to map mates to the reference genome.

          PS: I have noted that most linker sequences in 3K-LT PE are not exactly 44mer. They are in the range from 20-80 bp

          Besides that, you will have to discard reads in which the mates (fragments before and after the linker) are shorter than a specified cutoff (I use 22bp).

            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...
