Basic alignment and aligners

  • File formats
  • Aligners
  • Comparison of different aligners
    • by Heng Li, developer of bwa, samtools, and many other bioinformatics tools
  • The BioITeam has some TACC-aware alignment scripts you might find useful:
    • bwa alignment
      • /work/projects/BioITeam/common/script/align_bwa_illumina.sh
    • bowtie2 alignment
      • /work/projects/BioITeam/common/script/align_bowtie2_illumina.sh
    • merging sorted BAM files (read-group aware)
      • /work/projects/BioITeam/common/script/merge_sorted_bams.sh
    • kallisto pseudo-alignment to annotated transcripts
      • /work/projects/BioITeam/common/script/run_kallisto.sh
    • also available on many BRCF pods under /mnt/bioi/script.
      • many pre-built references also available in /mnt/bioi/ref_genome
    • email or come talk to Anna if you have questions or problems
