Hi, I'm trying to investigate conservation in SNPs using Galaxy, but running into a few "issues" so I'm probably not doing this the best way. Here is what I did in Galaxy: (1) Get some high heterozygosity missense SNPs from UCSC for chr21 (2) Get all Genes from UCSC for chr21 (3) Split the genes into codons using the "Gene BED to Codon BED expander" (4) Join the SNPs(1) to the Codons(2) using {Operate on genomic intervals}->Join (5) Create a multiple alignment for the codons which had SNPs using {Fetch Alignments}->{Extract MAF blocks} Some problems I found were: * The SNP file contains 149 regions but when joined to the Codons there are 311 items in the output. I was expecting one joined record per SNP. * The joined file contains many duplicate SNPs and missing SNPs * MAF blocks are all in same orientation but about half the codons should be in the reverse direction Can anyone offer advice?

Hi Paul, Your gene list might contain several overlapping genes/reading frames and therefore when you fetch codons you'll have the same positions present multiple times. As a result, a given SNP might join with multiple codons from overlapping genes/reading frames. If you want to avoid this, you can remove duplicate codons using "Statistics > Count" tool (with chr, start and end columns selected). Please note that this tool will return a tabular output. You'll need to click on the pencil icon next to the output dataset and change datatype to 'interval' and set chr, start, end columns to 2,3,4 respectively. Hope this answers some of your questions. Thanks for using Galaxy, Guru.

Guru, Thanks, for the handy tip on getting rid of duplicates. The join file now contains 130 items with no duplicates. I guess there is a mismatch between what SNP130 considers a missense mutation and what UCSC Genes considers to be coding sequence. Paul
