Question: Is there a way to produce/convert nhmmer output to a bed file?

I have recently used nhmmer to search for a sequence in a FASTA file, I'd like to compare the output of the nhmmer search to a bed file I have and think it would be easy to do if the nhmmer output is also in bed format.

Is there a tool to convert the nhmmer output? I have had a look in the nhmmer manual and can't find any specific flags for generating either a bed file output or a table output indicating locations of the hits.

Example of nhmmer output:

Annotation for each hit  (and alignments):

I think if you use the commandline version, and add --noali option, that would be easier. Then you can use awk to extract the columns that you need:

awk '($1!~"#"){print $1,$2,$3}'

Just change 1,2,3 to columns that you're interested in.

I assume you need to add strand information too.

@Fatima, great - that should work. Thank you :)

@Fatima, Strand information would be useful also but I can't work out where it is?

ADD REPLYlink written 5 weeks ago by jamie.pike60

I assume since you're aligning the whole genome, it would be + for all the entries.

awk '($1!~"#"){print "VMNF01000014.1\t"$7"\t"$8"\t"$1"\t.\t+"}'

. for score column

I usually get the genes in the genome, and then use hmmer. I haven't used nhmmer.,Galaxy%20browser%20and%20for%20bedtools.

@Fatima, thank you. I'm trying to find a transposable element on specific scaffolds so there is variation in strandedness. Perhaps I will try annotating first using hmmer. Thank you for your help.

Ps I have found also that --tblout will provide location information and strandedness.

ADD REPLYlink written 5 weeks ago by jamie.pike60

Aha! Have you tried ISFinder (for finding transposable elements)?

ADD REPLYlink written 5 weeks ago by Fatima830

No, I haven't heard of it! I'll take a look at it. Thank you :)
