The `radsex` software is part of RADSex, a computational workflow for the analysis of sex-determination using RAD-Sequencing data. This workflow contains the software `radsex` and the R package `sgtr`; a Snakemake implementation of the workflow is available [here](https://github.com/SexGenomicsToolkit/RADSex-workflow).

The first step of the RADSex workflow is to use `radsex` to generate a summary file for a set demultiplexed RAD reads and use this file to:

- infer the type of sex-determination system
- identify sex-biased markers
- align markers to a genome and identify genomic regions differentiated between sexes
- compute marker depth statistics

Results from `radsex` can be visualized with the `sgtr` R package available [here](https://github.com/SexGenomicsToolkit/sgtr).

Although RADSex was developed specifically to study sex-determination, it was designed to be flexible and can be used to compare two groups for any binary trait.

The RADSex computational workflow was developed in the [LPGP](https://www6.rennes.inra.fr/lpgp/) lab from INRA, Rennes, France for the PhyloSex project, which investigates sex determining factors in a wide range of fish species.

### Preparing the data
65

66
Before running the workflow, you should prepare the following elements:

69
70
- A **set of demultiplexed reads**. The current version of RADSex does not implement demultiplexing;
  raw sequencing reads can be demultiplexed using [Stacks](http://catchenlab.life.illinois.edu/stacks/comp/process_radtags.php)
  or [pyRAD](http://nbviewer.jupyter.org/gist/dereneaton/af9548ea0e94bff99aa0/pyRAD_v.3.0.ipynb#The-seven-steps-described).
71

72
- A **group info file** (popmap): a tabulated file with individual IDs in the first column and sex (or group) in the second column. Individual IDs in the popmap must be the same as the names of the demultiplexed reads files (*e.g.* 'individual_1' for the reads file 'individual_1.fq.gz')

- To align the markers to a genome: the **genome** sequence in a FASTA file.

75
  Note that when visualizing `map` results with `sgtr`, linkage groups / chromosomes are automatically inferred from scaffold names in the genome if their name starts with *LG*, *CHR*, or *NC* (case unsensitive). If chromosomes are named differently in the genome, you can use a tabulated file with contig ID in the first column and corresponding chromosome name in the second column (see the doc for details).

### Computing the marker depths table

The first step of RADSex is to create a table of marker depths for the entire dataset using the `process` command:

```bash
radsex process --input-dir ./samples --output-file markers_table.tsv --threads 16 --min-depth 1
```

In this example, demultiplexed reads are located in **./samples** and the markers table generated by `process` will be saved to **markers_table.tsv**. The parameter `--threads` specifies the number of threads to use, and `--min-depth` specifies the minimum depth to consider a marker present in an individual: markers which are not present with depth higher than this value in at least one individual will not be retained in the markers table.
It is advised to keep the minimum depth to the default value of 1 for this step, as it can be adjusted for each analysis later.


### Computing the distribution of markers between sexes

The `distrib` command computes the distribution of markers between males and females from a marker depths table:

95
```bash
radsex distrib --markers-table markers_table.tsv --output-file distribution.tsv --popmap popmap.tsv --min-depth 5 --groups M,F
```
96

RomainFeron's avatar
RomainFeron committed
97
In this example, `--markers-table` is the table generated with `process` and the distribution of markers between males and females will be saved to **distribution.tsv**. The sex of each individual in the population is given by **popmap.tsv**. Groups of individuals to compare (as defined in the popmap) are specified manually with the parameter `--groups`. The minimum depth to consider a marker present in an individual is set to 5, meaning that markers with depth lower than 5 in an individual will not be considered present in this individual.
98

The resulting distribution can be visualized with the `radsex_distrib()` function of [sgtr](https://github.com/SexGenomicsToolkit/sgtr), which generates a tile plot of marker counts with number of males on the x-axis and number of females on the y-axis.

### Extracting markers significantly associated with sex
102

Markers significantly associated with sex are obtained with the `signif` command:

106
107
```bash
radsex signif --markers-table markers_table.tsv --output-file markers.tsv --popmap popmap.tsv --min-depth 5 --groups M,F [ --output-fasta ]
```
108

109
In this example, `--markers-table` is the table generated with `process` and markers significantly associated with sex are saved to **markers.tsv**. The sex of each individual in the population is given by **popmap.tsv**. Groups of individuals to compare (as defined in popmap) are specified manually with the parameter `--groups`. The minimum depth to consider a marker present in an individual is set to 5, meaning that markers with depth lower than 5 in an individual will not be considered present in this individual.

111
By default, the `signif` function generates an output file in the same format as the markers depth table. Markers can also be exported to a fasta file using the parameter `--output-fasta`.
112

RomainFeron's avatar
RomainFeron committed
113
The markers table generated by `signif` can be visualized with the `radsex_markers_depth()` function of [sgtr](https://github.com/SexGenomicsToolkit/sgtr), which generates a heatmap showing the depth of each marker in each individual.

### Aligning markers to a genome
117

RomainFeron's avatar

118
Markers can be aligned to a genome using the `map` command:
119

RomainFeron's avatar
RomainFeron committed
120
121
122
```bash
radsex map --markers-file markers_table.tsv --output-file alignment_results.tsv --popmap popmap.tsv --genome-file genome.fasta --min-quality 20 --min-frequency 0.1 --min-depth 5 --groups M,F
```
123

RomainFeron's avatar
RomainFeron committed
124
In this example, `--markers-file` is the markers depth table generated with `process` and the path to the reference genome file is given by `--genome-file`; results will are saved to **alignment_results.tsv**. The sex of each individual in the population is given by **popmap.tsv** and the minimum depth to consider a marker present in an individual is set to 5, meaning that markers with depth lower than 5 in an individual will not be considered present in this individual. Groups of individuals to compare (as defined in the popmap) are specified manually with the parameter `--groups`
125

RomainFeron's avatar
RomainFeron committed
126
The parameter `--min-quality` specifies the minimum mapping quality (as defined in [BWA](http://bio-bwa.sourceforge.net/bwa.shtml)) to consider a marker properly aligned and is set to 20 in this example. The parameter `--min-frequency` specifies the minimum frequency of a marker in the population to retain this marker and is set to 0.1 here, meaning that only sequences present in at least 10% of individuals of the population are aligned to the genome.
127

128
Alignment results from `map` can be visualized with the `radsex_map_circos()` function of [sgtr](https://github.com/SexGenomicsToolkit/sgtr), which generates a circular plot showing bias and association with sex for each marker aligned to the genome.
129

130
Alignment results for a specific contig can be visualized with the `radsex_map_region()` function to show the same metrics for a single contig.
