Hi,

I have no idea what I've done wrong. I'm trying to run miRDeep2 on some miRNA seq runs. I have linked the bowtie (1) index files to the current directory, and (attempted) to save a path to the originals anyway, I kep getting an error message saying it can't find them.

Below is the script showing what I have in the working directory, the line I tried to execute and everything I got in response.

I then show my path, and that the path I think I used gets me to the files... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Apologies, I'm very new to this so have thrown everything I can think of at it (hence the directory is a pigstye).

Try

-p genome.

Edit* Checked previous times I have used mapper.pl and nope, that's not it. Maybe provide the path like:

-p ./genome

Hi, Ty for the suggestion!

I tried

  -p genome. 

    -bash-4.2$ mapper.pl Test_1.fq -e  -j -k AGATCGGAAGAGCACACGTCTGAACTCCAGTCAC  -l 18 -m -h -p genome. -s reads_collapsed.fa -t reads_collapsed_vs_genome.arf -o 4 -v

    Could not locate a Bowtie index corresponding to basename genome.
    Please make sure you used bowtie version 1 to build the index.

Then, out of mild desperation...

  -p "genome.*"

    -bash-4.2$ mapper.pl Test_1.fq -e  -j -k AGATCGGAAGAGCACACGTCTGAACTCCAGTCAC  -l 18 -m -h -p “genome.*” -s reads_collapsed.fa -t reads_collapsed_vs_genome.arf -o 4 -v

Anything else I might try?

Going back to look at PATH..? To see if that might be the issue.

Give it a shot with the full path to the index files, or the relative path (try make a folder for em).

mkdir index
mv *ebwt* index/
cd ../
mapper.pl Test_1.fq -e  -j -k AGATCGGAAGAGCACACGTCTGAACTCCAGTCAC  -l 18 -m -h -p index/genome -s reads_collapsed.fa -t reads_collapsed_vs_genome.arf -o 4 -v

You forgot to try -p ./genome which would be another take on the relative path. If this doesn't work then I'm not sure what to do, except to do the trimming manually (which I have had success with)..

Hey,

Thank you for the suggestions. Still hasn't worked. Frustratingly, I have copies that have been trimmed already, I was just trying to do an all in one alignment. Is this what you use for alignment? Back to the drawing board.

bw,

Did you make the bowtie v.1 indexes yourself or downloaded them from somewhere? Are they known to work?

ADD REPLYlink modified 3 months ago • written 3 months ago by genomax80k

Have figured it out. I missed a full stop when I linked the bowtie sequences. It was looking through the root directory rather than from the current directory I was in.

I learned that black highlight of anything that you ls is not a good thing!

Great! Put up the fixed code, just as a future reference for anyone else coming across the same issue

Solution: (I have been using 'Big Data Analysis for Bioinformatics and Biomedical Discoveries, by Shui Qing Ye) There are some errors in the book, but this one was all me,

When linking the the genome and the bowtie index into the current working directory:

  ln -s ./Homo_sapiens/UCSC/hg38/Sequence/WholeGenomeFasta/genome.fa
    ln -s ./Homo_sapiens/UCSC/hg38/Sequence/BowtieIndex/genome.1.ebwt
    ln -s ./Homo_sapiens/UCSC/hg38/Sequence/BowtieIndex/genome.2.ebwt
    ln -s ./Homo_sapiens/UCSC/hg38/Sequence/BowtieIndex/genome.3.ebwt
    ln -s ./Homo_sapiens/UCSC/hg38/Sequence/BowtieIndex/genome.4.ebwt
    ln -s ./Homo_sapiens/UCSC/hg38/Sequence/BowtieIndex/genome.rev.1.ebwt
    ln -s ./Homo_sapiens/UCSC/hg38/Sequence/BowtieIndex/genome.rev.2.ebwt

it may need to be run line by line....

This was based on the files being found from the current directory. then running:

mapper.pl Sample_name.fq -v -q -n -o 4 -u -e -h -m -k AGATCGGAAGAGCACACGTCTGAACTCCAGTCAC -p genome -s reads_ collapsed.fa -t reads_collapsed_vs_genome.arf
