kissplice2reftranscriptome interpreting output

regarding the kissplice2reftranscriptome main output: for eg: I have: TRINITY_DN921_c0_g2_i1 bcc_10004|Cycle_0|Type_0a True 100.0 202 TAT CAT ... As is understandable the TAT is the reference codon and CAT is the alt. codon, and the "TAT" should be the 202-204 squences in the TRINITY_DN921_c0_g2_i1 sequence.

So I did this: samtools faidx 02_Trinity.fasta TRINITY_DN9185_c0_g2_i1:202-204

TRINITY_DN921_c0_g2_i1:202-204 TAA

In other cases for eg.: TRINITY_DN921_c0_g2_i1 bcc_10003|Cycle_0|Type_0a True 100.0 641 GGG GGC

TRINITY_DN9185_c0_g2_i1:639-641 GGC

Can somebody explain me what is the pattern there? Or how to find the exact position of the codon into the transcript? Thank you,

Hi Lucaciu,

All the formats we use in our pipeline (.bed, .psl) are 0-based, hence the SNP position we output in the final table is also 0-based. If you want to use samtools faidx (which is 1-based), you should type :

samtools faidx 02_Trinity.fasta TRINITY_DN9185_c0_g2_i1:201-205

You will obtain 5 nucleotides, the central position being the SNP (202 in 0-based is 203 in 1-based).

For your specific example, since the SNP is in the first position of the codon, the codon should correspond to the last 3 nt of these 5nt, unless your ORF is on the minus strand, in which case your codon should correspond to the reverse complement of the first 3 nt.

Hi Vincent,

I'm also having a hard time interpreting the output. I was wondering if you could give me a hand.

When the snp change is in the second position of the codon, then we can predict that the codon of interest is in the middle of the 5 nucleotides that you mentioned. But how can we find the position of change in the reference fasta file file when the snp is on the first or second position of the codon? Also, how would this read for the reverse complement?

I'm copying below some selected sections of my data.

Hi Vanessa,

I am not sure I understand your question. The column SNP_position of the main output file of k2rt should give you the position of the SNP in the reference. The only tricky thing to remember is that this coordinate is 0-based.

If you simply need the position of the SNP in the reference, then you do not need to worry about the strand, or if the SNP is in the first, second or third position of the codon.

Or maybe you need something else ?

I'm unclear how to see the KisSplice2refTranscriptome output .tsv file. Can you explain the specific meaning of each column? If I have multiple samples, how do I know the type of base in each sample at each SNP position?
