Example

Convert chromosome / position pairs to coordinates along the genome.

Converting chromosome based coordinates to genome-based coordinates

Chromosome coordinates contain a chromsome and a position. Genome coordinates just contain positions. They assume that each chromosome is laid down end to end and thus require a chromsome ordering.

Command Line

[peter@dbmipkedjievmbp negspy] [master]$ chr_pos_to_genome_pos.py
chr2 10
249250631

API


Warning, GRCh37 is currently exactly the same hg19, except with chromosome names that match GRCh37 (e.g. "1" vs "chr1").

### API

```python
import negspy.coordinates as nc

print(nc.chr_pos_to_genome_pos('chr1', 1000, 'hg19')) # -> 1000

List available chromsizes

>>> import negspy.coordinates as nc
>>> nc.available_chromsizes()
['b37', 'dm3', 'dm6', 'GCA_000001215.4_Release_6_plus_ISO1_MT_genomic', 'GCA_000001405.15_GRCh38_genomic', 'GCF_000005845.2_ASM584v2_genomic', 'grch37', 'grch37-lite', 'hg19', 'hg19_chr1', 'hg38', 'mm10', 'mm9', 'test', 'test3chroms']

Chromosome Ordering

import negspy.coordinates as nc

print(nc.get_chromorder('hg19')) # -> ['chr1', 'chr2', 'chr3', 'chr4', 'chr5', 'chr6', 'chr7', 'chr8', 'chr9', 'chr10', 'chr11', 'chr12', 'chr13', 'chr14', 'chr15', 'chr16', 'chr17', 'chr18', 'chr19', 'chr20', 'chr21', 'chr22', 'chrX', 'chrY', 'chrM']

Print the chromosome lengths

Adding new assemblies

To add a new assembly, it's necessary to add a file called negspy/data/${ASSEMBLY}/chromInfo.txt to the root repo directory. this file should contain chromosome names and sizes:

chr1	249250621
chr2	243199373
chr3	198022430
...

One can also add negspy/data/${ASSEMBLY}/chromSizes.txt which defines how the chromosomes should be ordered if presented in a linear fashion. There's no correct ordering, but for many assemblies convention dictates having the numbered chromosomes first, followed by X, Y, M and the extra contigs. Example from hg19:

chr1
chr2
chr3
chr4
chr5
chr6
chr7
chr8
chr9
chr10
chr11
chr12
chr13
chr14
chr15
chr16
chr17
chr18
chr20
chr19
chr22
chr21
chrX
chrY
chrM
...
You can’t perform that action at this time.
