Dear All, 

I am analysing data produced from Zymo's Targeted Bisulfite sequencing approach which uses a Fluidigm's array to simultaneously amplify 48 samples using 48 specific genetic loci. I have a heterogenous mix of samples but have started comparing cancers with normal tissue.

I am having some trouble using the BSseq package with these samples: I am following a protocol 'Analysing WGBS with the bsseq package' after going through the protocol with the example. I realise this may not be the most suitable for my data as I have used a targeted approach but I thought the general procedure would be very similar. 

I get to the point in the protocol where removal of CpGs with little or no methylation data is necessary and then get an error message:

> keepLoci.ex <- which(rowSums(BS.cov[, bsseq.data$Type == "SSA-"] >= 2) >= 2 & rowSums(BS.cov[, bsseq.data$Type == "normal-"] >= 2) >= 2)
Error in which(rowSums(BS.cov[, bsseq.data$Type == "SSA-"] >= 2) >= 2 &  : 
  error in evaluating the argument 'x' in selecting a method for function 'which': Error in rowSums(BS.cov[, bsseq.data$Type == "SSA-"] >= 2) : 
  'x' must be an array of at least two dimensions

When I look at the number of CpGs that are covered by at least 1 read in all samples I get around 500 which seems quite low.

In addition I get the following warning messages when I use read.bismark:

Warning messages:
1: In .Seqinfo.mergexy(x, y) :
  Each of the 2 combined objects has sequence levels not in the other:
  - in 'x': chrX
  - in 'y': chrMT
  Make sure to always combine/compare objects based on the same reference
  genome (use suppressWarnings() to suppress this warning).
2: In .Seqinfo.mergexy(x, y) :
  Each of the 2 combined objects has sequence levels not in the other:
  - in 'x': chrX, chrMT
  - in 'y': chr8, chr21
  Make sure to always combine/compare objects based on the same reference
  genome (use suppressWarnings() to suppress this warning).
3: In .Seqinfo.mergexy(x, y) :
  Each of the 2 combined objects has sequence levels not in the other:
  - in 'x': chrX, chr1, chr8, chr21
  - in 'y': chr9

  genome (use suppressWarnings() to suppress this warning).
4: In .Seqinfo.mergexy(x, y) :
  Each of the 2 combined objects has sequence levels not in the other:
  - in 'x': chr16, chrMT, chr8, chr21, chr9
  - in 'y': chr13
  Make sure to always combine/compare objects based on the same reference
  genome (use suppressWarnings() to suppress this warning).
5: In .Seqinfo.mergexy(x, y) :
  Each of the 2 combined objects has sequence levels not in the other:
  - in 'x': chr15, chrX, chrMT, chr8, chr21, chr9, chr13
  - in 'y': chr14
  Make sure to always combine/compare objects based on the same reference
  genome (use suppressWarnings() to suppress this warning)

 

 

Please could you let me know what might be wrong and how I should proceed.

Many thanks in advance!

Hello! We developed an R/Bioconductor package particularly for targeted BS data, which is called BiSeq. Here is the article: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23658421 And here the package: http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/BiSeq.html You might want to give this one a try.

Thank you very much for your answer - I have looked into this package and it looks more appropriate for targeted analysis. I am following your protocol and I want to try and create the BSraw object with the Bismark output files. However, when I run readBismark(files, colData) I get an error: 

Error in readBismark(files, colData) : 
  error in evaluating the argument 'files' in selecting a method for function 'readBismark': Error: object 'files' not found

Do you know how to overcome this?

I have previously for the BSseq just imported the cov. files and this worked fine as far as I know...
