    We also use the hcdiffs in combination with our own downstream analysis where we annotate the data with known SNPs and other useful info. Seems to work fine as long as you have sufficient coverage and there's not too many variants close to each other. With lower coverage you start getting more false positives but you also start missing variants. Actually we once did a comparison with a SNP array and the HCDiffs of version 1.0 of the mapper software and that didn't look that good, as we were missing quite a few variants.

    denovo contig assembly from capture array

    Tim, could please say what you mean when you say that you parse the HCDifs file for ""differences with >85% agreement"". and also the kind of validation you do? As I am also certain that alot of our indels will be false positives.
    (Thankyou)
    Has anybody attempted denovo contig assembly from their capture array data?

    Layla
    Layla,

    Have you found anyone that has done the contig assembly? I'm curious...

    Thank you Tim, I realized what you meant 2 seconds after I had posted the question! Yes, I have been focusing on that file and using diffs > 75% agreement. Cheers, Layla

    Layla - by '85% agreement', I mean 85% of the 454 reads agree with the variant call. This is the final column on the header line of the HCDifs file. Verification is by Sanger sequencing.

    SNP calling for 454 data

    You may use NextGENe software to call SNPs using 454 data. The software links the calling to dbSNP database if GenBank format is provided. SoftGenetics may provide a demo to use NextGENe to your own data.

    No correlation I can see in the differences called by newbler runmapper that we validated (which are generally high quality calls). I dont think we have a large enough sample size though. We have noted trends in the raw output from runmapper for calls that fall underneath our cutoof filter. Like a large number of 1 bp insertions and deletions are <25-fold read coverage and <50% concordance.

    timread,

    Could you give some parameters on read depth for the false vs true positives? Or do you find no correlation.

    Thanks

    We are primarily looking for SNPs in bacterial genomes (ie no heterozygotes). For a first look we parse the HCDifs file for differences with >85% agreement. We then proceed to validation. Most of the single base insertions and deletions turn out to be false positives.

    Thanks Tom, that was helpful.

    Any others looking for SNPs from 454 data? I heard brute blast approach with no gaps also works! lots of try-it-out-yourself

    We are working with this, we use mostly the HCDiffs file with alot of post processing. Key things we look at are read depth (hcdiffs is a depth of 3, 2 one way 1 the other)I would say 5 is a better minimum, 15 if you are looking for hets. We also filter for known snps using the dbsnp track from ucsc database and if it is in an exon (also from ucsc) since most people I am working with are looking at nimblegen capture experiments, primarily focused on exons. If you are looking outside exons conservation score appears somewhat useful.

    don't know if that helps at all

    I'd hoped we were working on similar things, but it seems not. Your problem seem to be more about recognizing novel snps, which is substantially different from my need to recognized named snps.

    Specifically I need to turn the PGP10 exome fasta into a series of dbSNP rs#s and report observed genotypes. Results will be tab delimited and look something like

    Since this is about recognizing named entities, I'd like to extend it to also recognize non-SNP features such as Huntington's, and possibly CNVs.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful, but if anyone has code or advice on either topic I'm interested in both.

    started a topic SNP calling on 454 data

    SNP calling on 454 data

    Anyone has ideas on how to make variation calls on 454 re-sequencing data?

    perhaps using the Alldiffs or HCDiffs files from gsmapper software? or some other tools. I believe there needs to be some downstream analysis after Marth lab's mosaik tool, in order to get variation positions and % calls for A C G Ts

    Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
    by seqadmin


    The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...
