Setup output directory.

mkdir bowtie_samtools

If you do not have an alignment file in the SAM format you may want to start with Introduction to mapping.

cp bowtie/REL606.5.sam bowtie_samtools/ 
cp bowtie/REL606.5.fasta bowtie_samtools/

Index the reference file.

samtools faidx bowtie_samtools/REL606.5.fasta

Convert from SAM to BAM format.

samtools view -bS -o bowtie_samtools/REL606.5.bam bowtie/REL606.5.sam |borderStyle=solid}

Sort the BAM file.

samtools sort bowtie_samtools/REL606.5.bam bowtie_samtools/sorted_REL606.5

Output VCF file.

samtools mpileup -uf bowtie_samtools/REL606.5.fasta bowtie_samtools/sorted_REL606.5.bam \|bcftools view -vcg - \> bowtie_samtools/output.vcf 

Produces output.vcf from Bowtie and output.vcf from BWA.
Move all 3(question) bam files and all 3(question) vcf files to lonestar

Determining Differences Between Aligners.

Bedtools is a suite of utility programs that work on a variety of file formats, one of which is conveniently VCF format. Using intersectBed and subtractBed we can find equal and different predictions between mappers.

Load Bedtools.

module load bedtools

Alike mutations.

intersectBed -a bowtie.vcf -b bwa.vcf > intersect.vcf

Unique mutations.

subtractBed -a bowtie.vcf -b intersect.vcf > unique_bowtie.vcf
subtractBed -a bwa.vcf -b intersect.vcf > unique_bowtie.vcf
