Hello,

For more than a month I am trying many tools for finding DE miRNAs in fungi but error, error, error

online tools don't support fungi and local tools were mostly written in perl needed mirdeep2 algorithms

believe my failure is not because of my laziness, I tried whatever I could

although being too rude with a great expectation, please someone help me to install mirdeep via TeamViewer or whatever

I asked institute admin, he tried his best but my problem was not solved

thank you in advance

I understood that an earlier installation was succesfull, but that (after trying to reinstall) nothing works anymore. You also installed your own perl interpreter if I remember correctly. Somewhere, when reinstalling, something probably got wrongly configured and causing your problems.

I would try to remove everything I installed (including perl and perl modules) and start over from the beginning. Because it used to work, right?

you all right, I ran on replicate for Aspergillus fumigatus successfully but in the second replicate (before re-installing) only mapper.pl worked and quantifier.pl did not (too weird). then I re-installed but this time even mapper.pl does not work anymore

In perl scripts you generally define which perl to use in the shebang line. Did you do that?

thank you,

you mean in mirdeep2.pl script I should change #!/usr/bin/perl to another directory?

If you installed your own perl (if the default one on the cluster is not one you can use) then you would change that line to the path of where this new perl program is (e.g. /home/izadi/bin/perl).

I only downloaded perl-5.24.0 and unzipped in

in /usr/home/izadi/ there 2 perl folders; perl which is empty and perl 5/bin contains only cpanm

Perhaps you should download e.g. latest perl source, extract, actually read the README file, google everything that you don't understand, and only then proceed with your stuff.

 cd perl-5.24.0

 Configure -des -Dprefix=$HOME/usr/data/nfs6/izadi/

    make test

All tests successful. Elapsed: 1242 sec u=4.69 s=1.59 cu=230.89 cs=25.09 scripts=2248 tests=851140

       make install

now in /usr/data/nfs6/izadi/ a folder was created name perl that is empty but I noticed mirdeep2.pl in perl-5.24.0 folder, what should I do now?

Please don't try to install things that are not necessary. They are making your life difficult. Your system perl which is at 5.22 should be fine for miRDeep2.

Start with a fresh download of miRDeep2 code. Open the README in that folder. Start at section 2 in installation, since we know you can't get perl install.pl method to work. Follow each step sequentially (2.1, 2.2 etc) until you complete them all. It is natural that you are starting to feel desperate by now but trying to do this methodically is the only way.

If you had an error at each step then you need to address those errors sequentially. Moving to step 2.2. is not going to make the problem with 2.1 go away magically. You may be able to skip some steps (e.g. if you have bowtie installed already then use that PATH and go to the next app).

Followed the steps in miRDeep2 README section 2 to verify that everything is working as included (on linux mint). So you should be able to do it. You would need to install Font-TTF-1.05 package from CPAN for the PDF-API2 to work.

That echo command won't be useful since you are not using bash shell.

You could do

$ bash

to enter a new bash shell. The system prompt will return but you should now be in a new bash shell. Confirm by echo $SHELL

That will make it easy to follow the instructions from README as is.

What does echo $PATH show now?

Same problem. You don't have root privileges so you can't write to /usr.

See if these instructions help in installing the modules "user space". They add another complication : http://blogs.perl.org/users/marc_sebastian_jakobs/2009/11/how-to-install-perl-modules-from-cpan-in-the-unix-user-space.html

BTW: I did not need to install ExtUtils but looks like you don't have them. Why are you using your mirdeep directory as prefix for ViennaRNA package. Use the directory for ViennaRNA.

So you tried reinstalling, but without first removing everything? (It's not sure that that will work, but it might)

I removed mirdep2 folder and unziped again but this time when running mapper.pl or wherever saying

[izadi@lbox200 bin]$ mapper.pl 1.fq -e -h -m -v -p af -s sample.fa -t Sample.arf

Please run the install.pl script first before using the miRDeep2 package

The install script is located in /usr/data/nfs6/izadi/mirdeep2_0_0_8/ so just do

cd /usr/data/nfs6/izadi/mirdeep2_0_0_8/

perl install.pl

and when I ran perl install.pl telling

Installing PDF-API2 now

randfold was/is not installed properly

bowtie was/is not installed properly

pdf was/is not installed properly

RNAfold was/is not installed properly

Please run the install.pl script again to check if

everything is properly installed.

Hi Angel, I dont know if there is any specific reason that you are using miRDeep2. But miRDeep* claims that it is better (in predicting novel miRNAs) than miRDeep2 (http://www.australianprostatecentre.org/research/software/mirdeep-star) and has GUI. You can try this. Additionally, there is a web-server oasis2.0 (https://oasis.dzne.de/index.php) that can be used for miRNA identification, DE study and Target prediction. Though your organism of interest is not listed there, there is an option "All Genomes of miRBase v21" under Reference Genome drop-down. I am not sure, if you can use this option.

I checked Oasis, uploading a fastq file took 3 hours but the problem was the results that my reads were trimmed more than 98% and only about 1 percent mapped. I tried with Illumina Small RNA 3' Adapter and unknown-adapter options separately but the trimming rate was the same.

Did you assess the quality of reads before and after trimming (for example using FastQC)? How was that? Can you share here? Meanwhile, since you have tried a lot many tools, did you try miRDeep*. It has UI. It can support your genome too. It has that option.

thank you, actually since yesterday I am involved in trying Oasis but I will try mirdeep. I tried Oasis with Solid 3 prime, illumina 3 prime, unknown-adapter and even I used my cleaned reads, but the counts of reads and statistics were the same. I emailed maintainer they replied that my reads are too short while they are not shortenter image description here

enter image description here

ADD REPLY

Entering edit mode

I don't particularly like the result you posted of adapter content (although I'm not familiar with small RNA-seq). What it says to me is that after 20 nucleotides sequencing 70% of your reads already ran into the adapter. Meaning that after removing adapters, reads are rather short! Or perhaps this is normal for small RNA-seq. Not sure.

Looks okay since miRNAs have length ~21 nt on average. What happens after trimming? Can you please share: basic summary, adapter content, sequence quality score and sequence length distribution after trimming?

ADD REPLY

Entering edit mode

After trimming, reads look okay. Now this is regarding the requirement of known miRNA annotation in gff3 (from miRBase) for miRDeep*. If I remember correctly, I was able to run without this annotation file. If that does not work, you try with an empty file with name knownMiR.gff3 and keep it wherever the tool manual suggests. The known annotation file is required to identify known miRNAs in the organism. If this file is kept empty, all identified miRNAs will be novel for this organism. However, later on you can match the identified miRNAs with all the miRBase entries, and would be able to assign an miRNA id.

thank you, I tried to build index for aspergillus based on readme file but after building for 2 chromosomes process stuck. anyway I continued with these indexes. first I did not use any gff that I gave error then I used an empty gff that process finished without error with an empty result as I provided shot.

Hello Angel, I remember the case when I was trying to index Ensembl mouse genome (chromosomes were distributed in individual files like 1.fa, 2.fa etc) using build_bwt_index in miRDeep*. I was having some issues. Jiyuan had suggested me to rename the entries as well as individual chromosome files. For example, if I have 1.fa which contains >1 blah blah as header, he suggested to rename the header as chr1, and file name as chr1.fa. If you have some spare time, try this out.

thank you, I performed so, this time indexes were built for three chromosomes. then I put chromosomes separately after each error till all indexes were built. I am not sure but might be this is a memory problem or because I am in windows and linux might be work that I did not try yet. anyway with all indexes mirdeep did not work. in biostars I read without gff we should try mireap which I tried and got error about perl packages. in mirdeep manual I read something about changing fastq header, did you change the header of your fastq files before uploading them in mirdeep?

No, I did not change the header in fastq file. May I request you to share the public URL of your genome fasta file? I would like to try to create index files myself.
