Hi everyone

I am trying to analyse some old data on STAT3 binding locations in macrophages upon IL-10 treatment. I found a dataset which perfectly matches what I want, however it was only available in bowtie format. My initial aim is to view it in the UCSC genome browser and quickly check for peaks at my genes of interest then move on to a more detailed analysis.

I managed (with some difficulty, I'm very new to all this) to convert it into a SAM file, however when I try to upload it to UCSC I get an error. After spending a while trying to figure out what was up, I discovered that it's missing the @SEQ header.

Now, I know that it has been mapped to mm9 as the reference genome, so I was hoping someone could help me generate a basic header.

I have read around and attempted converting it to a bam, using a fasta file of mm9 chr1, however I'm kicked back given an error:

samtools view -bT Documents/chr2.fa Documents/ChIP/STAT3.txt > STAT3.bam
[samfaipath] build FASTA index...
[W::sam_parse1] urecognized reference name; treated as unmapped
[W::sam_read1] Parse error at line 1
[main_samview] truncated file.


I would appreciate any help people can provide, or alternate methods of generating the @SEQ header, and please explain in detail, I'm new to all this and it takes me a while to understand what exactly I have to do.

Thank you!

(not tested) you can create a dict file using picard https://broadinstitute.github.io/picard/command-line-overview.html#CreateSequenceDictionary and then create the bam file:

cat new.dict Documents/ChIP/STAT3.txt | samtools view -Sb -o out.bam -

Thanks for the suggestion, but setting up picard goes way over my head when it comes to UNIX. I'm barely scraping by as it is, but having to set up an environmental variable to access picard requires a level of understanding that I just don't have.

you can always use a dict on the web: http://dldcc-web.brc.bcm.edu/lilab/deqiangs/ref/bowtie/Mm9/mm9.dict , but you need to be sure that it is the very same reference genome (UR and M5 tag are not required/checked)

Thanks, how would I go about checking it? It's definitely against mm9 but that's all I know.

Hmm, no, I get another error: [W::sam_read1] Parse error at line 24 [main_samview] truncated file.
