Sequence searches


We searched the "big80" database with Blast with the following command:

blastall -p blastp -d /mnt/project/pracstrucfunc12/data/big/big_80 -i P06280.fasta -m 0 -o blastsearch_default.out -v 700 -b 700
perl extract_ids_blast.pl blastsearch_default.out
perl ../download-annotation.pl blastsearch_default_ids.txt
perl ../compare_GO_terms.pl P06280 blastsearch_default_ids_GOterms.tsv
perl parse_blast.pl blastsearch_default.out

HHblits / HHsearch

We searched the "big80" database with HHblits using the default settings and also with the maximum number of possible iterations (8) with the following commands:

time hhblits -i ../P06280.fasta -d /mnt/project/pracstrucfunc12/data/hhblits/uniprot20_current -e 0.003 -o hhblits_default.out -E 0.003  -z 700
./extract_ids_hhblits.sh hhblits_default.out
perl ../download-annotation.pl hhblits_default_ids.txt
perl ../compare_GO_terms.pl P06280 hhblits_default_ids_GOterms.tsv
perl parse_hhblits.pl hhblits_default.out

time hhblits -i ../P06280.fasta -d /mnt/project/pracstrucfunc12/data/hhblits/uniprot20_current -e 0.003 -o hhblits_n8_neu.out -E 0.003 -n 8 -z 800 -b 800
./extract_ids_hhblits.sh hhblits_n8_neu.out
perl ../download-annotation.pl hhblits_n8_neu_ids.txt
perl ../compare_GO_terms.pl P06280 hhblits_n8_neu_ids_GOterms.tsv
perl parse_hhblits.pl hhblits_n8_neu.out

R CMD BATCH hist_hhblits.R


Venn diagrams created with Oliveros, J.C. (2007) VENNY. An interactive tool for comparing lists with Venn Diagrams.

  >R CMD BATCH all_Evalues.R

Multiple sequence alignments


The following commands were used in our bash script calculate_msas.sh to generate the multiple sequence alignments. The pictures were obtained by using jalview.

$ clustalw -infile="<filename>.fasta" -outfile="msa/clustalw_<filename>.msa" &

$ muscle -in "<filename>.fasta" -out "msa/muscle_<filename>.msa" &

$ /mnt/opt/T-Coffee/bin/t_coffee -seq "<filename>.fasta" -outfile "msa/tcoffe_<filename>.msa" &

$ /mnt/opt/T-Coffee/bin/t_coffee -seq "<filename>.fasta" -method sap_pair -template_file "<filename>.pdb" \
    -outfile "msa/3Dcoffee_<filename>.msa" &

We counted the number of gaps and conserved columns with the perl script countGaps.pl. There is also a small wrapper script - countAllGaps.sh which basically runs countGaps.pl on all .msa files in a specific folder:


for file in msa/*.msa; do
	perl countGaps.pl "$file" > "${file%.*}.counts"
