Getting started

In order to set up and manage a Multi-Genome Project in Genplay, please refer to the following sections of the documentation:

Conversion between NCBI36/hg18 and GRCh37/hg19


This tutorial will explain how to display at the same time tracks mapped on genome assembly NCBI36/hg18 or GRCh37/hg19. In the example, user will be able to see all the modifications on the NCBI36/hg18 genome leading to the GRCh37/hg19 reference genome.



Project settings

Project name

User must choose a name for a new project; here the name is GenPlay-MG – Reference genome tutorial (Figure 1).

Figure 1: Project name
Project assembly

According to bed files provided in this tutorial, the reference genome is GRCh37/hg19. User has to select the mammal clade, the human genome and the Feb 2009 (GRCh37/hg19) assembly as in Figure 2.

Figure 2: Project assembly
Chromosome selection

The VCF file is about Structural Variants and contains information for chromosomes 1 to 22 and chromosomes X and Y. User can select to load on or more chromosomes by clicking on the settings button next to the assembly name (Figure 3).

Figure 3: Chromosome chooser
VCF Loading

To load VCF files , users must first fill the column lists and then select from the list the appropriate data. The VCF Loader appears after clicking on the Edit button from the welcome screen. The bottom left part of the VCF Loader contains the Column list edition section. User has to select a column and click on Edit button in order to show the associated list. Only one VCF file is going to be loaded for this tutorial. The VCF file contains differences between the reference genome NCBI36/hg18 and the reference genome GRCh37/hg19.

Group column
This tutorial compares reference genome; a generic group name can be Reference genome. On the Group name list editor, user clicks on the plus button to show the input text box and fills it (Figure 4).
The Group name list editor should looks like the Figure 5 below.
Once the values has been added to the list, it can be saved by closing the "Group name list editor window"
value: Reference genome

Genome column
The genome name is an Alias for the selected raw name. In this tutorial, the genome name is going to be Hg18. On the Genome name list editor, user clicks on the plus button to invoke the input text box and fills it (Figure 6).
The Genome name list editor should looks like the Figure 7 below.
Once the values has been added to the list, it can be saved by closing the "Genome name list editor window"
value: Hg18

Type column
This field cannot be edited by the users. The provided VCF file is a Structural Variant type, user therefore has to choose SV (Figure 8).
value: SV

Figure 8: VCF type list

File column
Once the VCF file is downloaded, user has to open the File list editor, user clicks on the plus button to show the file chooser dialog and choose the VCF file according to its location.
value: VCF path

Figure 9: VCF File editor

Raw name(s) column
The raw name list is automatically filled. In the case of this tutorial there is only one genome: NCBI36 (Figure 10).
value: NCBI36

Figure 10: Raw name list

Again, value is saved by closing the windows

Import XML settings
In order to set the project with ease, user can import the settings using the XML file above. Please be careful about the VCF path, user must changes it directly on the xml file if he wants to use the import function.

Finally, the screen should be like the one on Figure 11.

Figure 11: VCF loader

The welcome screen should finally be similar to the Figure 12.

Figure 12: Welcome screen

The "Create" button will create the project and will run the synchronization.

GRCh37/hg19 genes loading

To load a file, user has to do a right click on the left part of the track. Then to choose "Load Gene Track", a file chooser appears to select the file given in this tutorial. After having chosen the BED file, a new selection box appears (Figure 13).

Figure 13: Genome selection dialog for GRCh37/hg19 genes file

This box asks which genome is related to the BED file. Here, user has to choose "Feb 2009 (GFCh37/hg19)" option because the BED file contains information about that genome. Gene file for GRCh37/hg19 reference has been loaded.

NCBI36/hg18 genes loading

The same operation as loading a gene files for GRCh37/hg19 reference genome. The only step changing is to choose the "Reference genome - hg18 (NCBI36)" option after the BED file selection (Figure 14)

Figure 14: Genome selection dialog for NCBI36/hg18 genes file


User can navigate into the different chromosomes and visualizes differences between both genomes using the stripes. All genes are perfectly synchronized and are display according to the meta-genome coordinates.

The Figure 15 shows an example of the result of this tutorial. It is possible to see deletions (in red) and insertions (in green) in the NCBI36/Hg18 reference genome compare to the GCh37/Hg19 reference genome.
Chromosome: chr1
Position: 143,822,670
