I have a PhD in Genetics and my primary research focus is on mechanisms of genome evolution involving transposable elements. I also work on many other projects related to genome assembly, annotation, and gene family evolution. 


Here are some of the bioinformatics projects I've developed:

For this reason we have closed your question. This allows us to keep the site focused on the topics that the community c ...

Comment: C: JGI's Taxonomy Server
... There is a well-documented NCBI webservice called [E-utilities](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK25501/) that already handles all of this for you. You form a standard request and parse the response with something like libxml. It is therefore trivial to get text output with a shell command or a ...

Comment: C: JGI's Taxonomy Server
... It's not completely clear why one would use this service. Perhaps you could clarify a few things. Is this getting data directly from NCBI through the taxonomy browser or the E-Utilities webservice? If so, why would you not want to use NCBI directly? Is the overall goal just to get JSON/text formats, ...

Answer: A: How to extract specific columns based on a set of different header patterns in a
... You are very close and I appreciate the effort. I'll share the thing you are missing and some other helpful tips because you basically have all the logic right.

Answer: A: uneven paired end reads in bowtie
... Instead of doing the trimming again (which can be a long process), the easiest solution is to repair the reads. Here's a very lightweight solution for pairing the reads (using [Pairfq](https://github.com/sestaton/Pairfq/wiki)): curl -sL git.io/pairfq_lite | perl - makepairs -f R1_trim.fq.gz -r ...

Comment: C: Ensembl Perl API
... I'm not certain this is the only issue, but you spelled "thaliana" wrong. Also, I recommend following best practices and putting 'use strict;' and 'use warnings;' in your script. That will make debugging so much easier. ...

Comment: C: bio::db::sam installation error
... If you want to try Bio::DB::HTS, fetch the latest release, then do the normal `configure` and `make` followed by `export HTSLIB_DIR=path` where "path" is the source distribution. Then you can do `cpanm Bio::DB::HTS` with no problem. If you are using code that already exists then stick to Bio::DB::S ...

Comment: C: bio::db::sam installation error
... Aside from the version issue, you probably only installed the `samtools` binary and the Perl module needs the library files to compile against. So, I'm certain this won't work because there is possibly no library available and it would be the wrong version if it could be found. ...

Answer: A: bio::db::sam installation error
... To save some space, I'll just point you to [StackOverflow](http://stackoverflow.com/a/25611671/1543853) where I've answered this a couple of times. It is important that you compile samtools correctly, make sure it can be found by the Perl module, and use a version that the Perl module was designed t ...

Comment: C: NCBI MagicBlast ( Short read mapper )
... > The input reads may be provided as SRA accession or file in a SRA, FASTA, FASTQ, or FASTC format. Read pairs can be presented as parallel files, or as successive reads in a single file. That will save SO much time to take SRA files or accessions directly. Also, what is FASTC? All I can find is ...
