RRBS Data access

I am trying to access the aligned RRBS data from the Next-generation characterization of the CCLE. In particular, I would like to run Bismark on aligned SAM/BAM files without rerunning alignment on fastq files. I have accessed the data from the SRA accession number PRJNA523380. Am I using the right files from SRA?

Bismark_methylation_extractor fails to run, output in comment below. Thanks!

I have downloaded with samtools, e.g.:
sam-dump SRR8633856

This produces a bam file, SRR8633878.bam. It is my understanding that this is the aligned file from Bismark 0.7.12 per the manuscript.

$ bismark_methylation_extractor …/SRR8633878.bam then fails (output below).

Output from samtools flagstat:

31856223 + 6315459 in total (QC-passed reads + QC-failed reads)

31856223 + 6315459 primary

0 + 0 secondary

0 + 0 supplementary

0 + 0 duplicates

0 + 0 primary duplicates

31856223 + 6315459 mapped (100.00% : 100.00%)

31856223 + 6315459 primary mapped (100.00% : 100.00%)

0 + 0 paired in sequencing

0 + 0 read1

0 + 0 read2

0 + 0 properly paired (N/A : N/A)

0 + 0 with itself and mate mapped

0 + 0 singletons (N/A : N/A)

0 + 0 with mate mapped to a different chr

0 + 0 with mate mapped to a different chr (mapQ>=5)

However, when I try to run bismark_methylation_extractor, I get the following output:

*** Bismark methylation extractor version v0.22.1 ***

Hi Ian,

The CCLE paper says that the bam files from SRA accession number PRJNA523380 are raw data, so I’m not sure that they have been processed by bismark. I have regenerated the methylation data recently by converting the bam files into fastqs and rerunning bismark on those fastqs. There may be a way to do it without converting the bams into fastqs (which I know you want to do), but I don’t know much about how to do that at the moment.
