Default Obtaining ORFs from DNA sequence

Hi Everyone,

I have small question in regards to obtaining ORFs in DNA sequences. I know that EMBOSS tools have a collection of awesome tools to do this specifically.

I have used six-pack from EMBOSS. Sixpack is able to find the ORFs and then translate them across all the 6 frames. Strangely it gives me a smaller amount of ORFs compared to the rest.

Also there is Transeq, but that translates the whole sequence, which should be better suited for transcript sequences as I am working with Eukaryotic organisms.

Then there is getORF, which finds the ORFs and outputs them.

What is different between getORF and Sixpack in the EMBOSS tool set?

My question is what is the difference between ORFget and Sixpack?

Also I found this awesome perl script: http://navjeet-ahalawat.blogspot.com...n-reading.html

ORFget, Sixpack and the Perl Script give me three different results. Why is that? I was expecting them to be the same.

Also I was wondering is there a method to obtain or extract all of the ORF nucleotide sequence in fasta format for each of ORFs with the proper FASTA header between the protein and nucleotide sequences.

Many thanks,

Zapages

Rather than a plain ORF finder you should be looking at a gene prediction program if you are working with an eukaryote genome (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ction_software).

Hi Genomax,

Thank you Genomax. I'm definitely using gene prediction programs as well. I'm trying to build confidence on newly denovo/ NCBI assembled sequences for a specific group of gemes of interest.

I'm really interested in the orfs and the protein sequences due to variance in protein, PSI, and nucleotide BLASTs.

Hi GenoMax,

I am new to eukaryotic genomes and trying to get an idea of the "best" workflow for translating DNA sequences into predicted proteins. I came across this post and your recommendation to not use a plain ORF finder, rather use a gene prediction program. Is this because of the introns/exons and large number of repeats?

Thanks

More or less. Since you need to account for possibility of splicing you can't just use start/stops. That said what are you trying to get the proteins from? Are you working with de novo DNA sequence or transcriptome sequence.

Hi Genomax,

Thanks. It is de novo DNA sequence. 2 x 150 read, assembled using Megahit.
