Hi everyone,

I am running segemehl to detect circular splicing. Commands as below.

  • Step 1: segemehl.x -d chr1.fa -x chr1.idx
  • Step 2: segemehl.x -d chr1.fa -i chr1.idx -q se.fq --threads 8 -S > mapped.sam
  • Step 3: testrealign.x -d chr1.fa -q mapped.sam -n

Steps 1 and 2 look OK. However, after step3 I found the following errors (the chr1.fa only contains chr1 sequence, no chr 0 as indicated in the error).

Errors are as follows

[SEGEMEHL] Mon Feb  9 21:29:30 2015: reading database sequences.
[SEGEMEHL] Mon Feb  9 21:29:37 2015: 1 database sequences found.

Could anyone help? I much appreciated your suggestions. THANKS!

You have to sort the sam file, before giving it to testrealign.

Try the following:

./segemehl.x -d chr1.fa -x chr1.idx
./segemehl.x -d chr1.fa -i chr1.idx -q reads.fastq -S | samtools view -bS - | samtools sort -o - deleteme | samtools view -h - > mapped.sam
./testrealign.x -d hg19.fa -q mapped.sam -n

Hi David,

Thank you very much for your answer. I have successfully finished the running. I have one further question: I see two new files named splicesites.bed and transrealigned.bed. Their format are as follows.

transrealigned.bed

chr1  165884  165884  distsplice:chr1:703993:1:6:3:L:F   0   +

splicesites.bed

chr1   12057   12179   splits:3:3:3:N:P   0   +

How to determine the circular splicing using these two files? THANKS!

If you don't understand the output format, you can find more information in the publication

Hoffmann S, Otto C, Doose G, Tanzer A, Langenberger D, Christ S, Kunz M, Holdt L, Teupser D, Hackerm├╝eller J, Stadler PF: 'A multi-split mapping algorithm for circular RNA, splicing, trans-splicing, and fusion detection', Genome Biology, 15:R34, doi:10.1186/gb-2014-15-2-r34 (2014)

and in the manual. These sources will also explain you how the algorithm works.

For your circular junctions, just search for 'backsplice' in the manual. It should give you the information needed.

Hi David, thank you for your manual link. Now I understand that in field 4, "C" stands for circular.

Hello everyone,

I am new to segemehl and this explanation helped me a lot. I have tried this for the paired end data reads, but getting a error message after running the second command.

Command used:

./segemehl.x -i ce6.idx -d ce6_eg.fa -q SRR2104398_1.fastq -p SRR2104398_2.fastq -S | samtools view -bS - | samtools sort -o - deleteme | samtools view -h - > map_reads.sam

Result:

[bam_header_read] EOF marker is absent. The input is probably truncated.
[SEGEMEHL] Thu Sep 10 11:51:42 2015: reading queries in 'SRR2104398_1.fastq'.
[bam_header_read] EOF marker is absent. The input is probably truncated.

Kindly suggest, although it is reading the queries further but why indicating that the input is truncated.

If the problem is in command then please suggest the correction because after execution of this command when 3rd is executed empty .bed files are obtained.

This is a bug of an old samtools version. With the latest version of samtools you shouldn't get this error message any more. But, even with this error message, the results should be ok.
