  • 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).

            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
