Hi Xiwei, as you asked for a way to do this in R, the Biostrings package might also do what you want. You can use the translate() function in Biostrings and simply compare the output of both alleles. Btw, Biomart contains data from various databases, so this doesn't apply to your setting where you discover a new variation, eg. by sequencing and then want to examine the effect. I didn't get this first. Here is a little toy example inspired from the example how this could be done: > library(Biostrings) Loading required package: IRanges > allele1 <- DNAString("TTGAAAACTCCC") > allele2 <- allele1 > # add a "snp" in 3rd pos of first codon > allele2[3] = "C" > translate(allele1) 4-letter "AAString" instance seq: LKTP > translate(allele2) 4-letter "AAString" instance seq: FKTP > > translate(allele1) == translate(allele2) [1] FALSE # or look at the codons > codons(allele1) Views on a 12-letter DNAString subject subject: TTGAAAACTCCC views: start end width [1] 1 3 3 [TTG] [2] 4 6 3 [AAA] [3] 7 9 3 [ACT] [4] 10 12 3 [CCC] The problem here will be to get the frame of the translation right, therefore you need the correct start of the sequence and to mask/splice out the introns correctly. There is a good example in ?translate And of course there could be more complicated cases e.g. interactions of 2 or SNPs, or SNPs changing the exon/intron boundaries. Maybe there are more refined solutions for this.
