Hi all, Could I please know if there is any tool to reconstruct transcriptome from reference genome using both short read and long sequences from pacific biosciences at one go simulataneously.

I need something like Scripture, but it is limited to short reads. I would prefer a tool which can deal with both short and long at the same time. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

How long are your reads?

You can use pre-aligned data (bam files) for scripture.

http://www.broadinstitute.org/software/scripture/Walkthrough_example

Use a dedicated long-read aligner to generate the alignment and then use Scripture to do the reconstruction. STAR might be a good option for alignment depending on error rates.

Thank you. I want to use both Illumina as well as pacbio data. The example shows only Illumina reads mapped to genome. So, you say, as long as the data is in pre-aligned format (bam files) it should be ok? My long read data mean length is 6.3 kb.

Recent versions of STAR (i.e., 2.4.1c) are distributed with STARlong that is optimised for reads >200bp in length. There isn't anything in the manual about it, but here is a comment from the author about it. You may want to use standard STAR for Illumina reads and STARlong for the PacBio reads.

A de novo approach using idba_tran:

idba_tran -r $1 -l $2 -o $3 --num_threads 16 --mink 20 --maxk 100 --step 5
-r pe reads in interleaved fasta
-l long reads in fasta
-o output dir

Have not tried this. Will have to check. Thank you.

How about MIRA?

An EST assembler which can perform hybrid assemblies using platforms of different read lengths.

I do not have first hand experience of trying this tool yet but believe it can do what you are looking for.

http://sourceforge.net/p/mira-assembler/wiki/Home/

A list of software for PacBio assembly, including hybrid assemblies, can be found here https://github.com/PacificBiosciences/Bioinformatics-Training/wiki/Large-Genome-Assembly-with-PacBio-Long-Reads

MIRA appears denovo assembler. I want to use genome as reference and run it. Will have check the tool. Thanks for the suggestion.
