TRF Simple Repeats

The TRF program can be obtained from [TRF/Gary Benson]

The TRF/SimpleRepeats operations is similar to the Repeat Masker procedure. Partition the sequence into bits, run trf on each bit, collect the results:

mkdir -p /data/genomes/ricCom1/bed/simpleRepeat/run.cluster
cd /data/genomes/ricCom1/bed/simpleRepeat/run.cluster

rm -rf /data/genomes/ricCom1/TrfPart /data/genomes/ricCom1/ricCom1.unmasked.2bit 50000000 /data/genomes/ricCom1/TrfPart
rm -f /data/genomes/ricCom1/bed/simpleRepeat/TrfPart
ln -s /data/genomes/ricCom1/TrfPart /data/genomes/ricCom1/bed/simpleRepeat/TrfPart

Cluster run

gensub2 template file:

./TrfRun.csh /data/genomes/ricCom1/TrfPart/$(path1).bed

gensub2 constructs the jobList:

gensub2 /data/genomes/ricCom1/TrfPart/partitions.lst single template jobList

Typical jobList commands:

./TrfRun.csh /data/genomes/ricCom1/TrfPart/000/000.lst.bed
./TrfRun.csh /data/genomes/ricCom1/TrfPart/001/001.lst.bed
./TrfRun.csh /data/genomes/ricCom1/TrfPart/002/002.lst.bed
... etc.

Typical parasol operation:

para make jobList
para check
para time > run.time
cat run.time
Completed: 8 of 8 jobs
CPU time in finished jobs:       4059s      67.66m     1.13h    0.05d  0.000 y
IO & Wait Time:                   407s       6.78m     0.11h    0.00d  0.000 y
Average job time:                 558s       9.30m     0.16h    0.01d
Longest finished job:            1391s      23.18m     0.39h    0.02d
Submission to last job:          1395s      23.25m     0.39h    0.02d

Each partition bit is processed by the script TrfRun.csh:

#!/bin/csh -ef

set finalOut = $1

set inLst = $finalOut:r
set inLft = $inLst:r.lft

# Use local disk for output, and move the final result to $finalOut
# when done, to minimize I/O.
set tmpDir = `mktemp -d -p /scratch/tmp doSimpleRepeat.cluster.XXXXXX`
pushd $tmpDir

foreach spec (`cat $inLst`)
  # Remove path and .2bit filename to get just the seq:start-end spec:
  set base = `echo $spec | sed -r -e 's/^[^:]+://'`

  # If $spec is the whole sequence, twoBitToFa removes the :start-end part,
  # which causes liftUp to barf later.  So tweak the header back to
  # seq:start-end for liftUp's sake:
  twoBitToFa $spec stdout \
  | sed -e "s/^>.*/>$base/" \
  | trfBig -trf=/cluster/bin/trf stdin /dev/null -bedAt=$base.bed -tempDir=/scratch/tmp

# Due to the large chunk size, .lft files can have thousands of lines.
# Even though the liftUp code does &lineFileClose, somehow we still
# run out of filehandles.  So limit the size of liftSpecs:
split -a 3 -d -l 500 $inLft SplitLft.

# Lift up:
foreach splitLft (SplitLft.*)
  set bedFiles = `awk '{print $2 ".bed"};' $splitLft`
  endsInLf -zeroOk $bedFiles
  cat $bedFiles \
  | liftUp -type=.bed tmpOut.$splitLft $splitLft error stdin
cat tmpOut.* > tmpOut__bed

# endsInLf is much faster than using para to {check out line}:
endsInLf -zeroOk tmpOut*

# Move final result into place:
mv tmpOut__bed $finalOut

rm -rf $tmpDir

post-process Filter

UCSC uses the repeats of period less than or equal to 12 for the masking of the genome sequence:

cd /data/genomes/ricCom1/bed/simpleRepeat
cat /data/genomes/ricCom1/bed/simpleRepeat/TrfPart/???/*.bed > simpleRepeat.bed
endsInLf simpleRepeat.bed
if ($status) then
  echo Uh-oh -- simpleRepeat.bed fails endsInLf.  Look at /hive/data/genomes/ricCom1/bed/simpleRepeat/TrfPart/ bed files.
  exit 1
awk '{if ($5 <= 12) print;}' simpleRepeat.bed > trfMask.bed

Final 2bit masking

WIth the trfMask.bed file and the decision of whether to use the RepeatMasker or Window Masker result:

twoBitMask -type=.bed ricCom1.unmasked.2bit bed/windowMasker/cleanWMask.bed.gz \
twoBitMask ricCom1.wmsk.sdust.2bit -add bed/simpleRepeat/trfMask.bed ricCom1.2bit
#   you can safely ignore the warning about fields >= 13
twoBitToFa ricCom1.2bit stdout | faSize stdin > faSize.ricCom1.2bit.txt

Resulting masking:

350621860 bases (13662715 N's 336959145 real 185500504 upper 151458641 lower) in 25763 sequences in 1 files
Total size: mean 13609.5 sd 106411.1 min 202 (EQ999533) max 4693355 (EQ973772) median 1094
%43.20 masked total, %44.95 masked real

Construct bigBed track files

Rearranging the simpleRepeat.bed file a bit with this perl script

It truncates the repeat string to 16 characters to use as the name of the item in the track:

#!/usr/bin/env perl

use strict;
use warnings;

open (FH, "<simpleRepeat.bed") or die "can not read simpleRepeat.bed";
while (my $line = <FH>) {
    chomp $line;
    my @a = split('\s+', $line);
    my $name = substr($a[15],0,16);
    printf "%s\t%d\t%d\t%s\t%d\t%s\t%d\t%d\t%d\t%d\t%d\t%d\t%d\t%d\t%s\t%s\n",
      $a[0], $a[1], $a[2], $name, $a[4], $a[5], $a[6], $a[7], $a[8], $a[9], $a[10], $a[11], $a[12], $a[13], $a[14], $a[15];
close (FH);

Sort the output of that script into the result file:

./  | sort -k1,1 -k2,2n > ricCom1.bed16.bed
bedToBigBed -tab -type=bed4+12 ricCom1.bed16.bed \

Using the source tree definition of the fields in the track.
