Innate Immune Response and Off Target Mis splicing Are Common Morpholino Induced Side Effects in Xenopus

Dev Cell
PMCID: 5861998
PMID: 29478923
DOI: 10.1016/j.devcel.2018.01.022

[…] merged using samtools v1.3.1 () and converted to the bigWig format. These genome tracks were normalized to the wigsum of 1 billion excluding any reads with mapping quality <10 using the python script from RSeQC v2.6.4 (). Tracks were visualized in the IGV genome browser v2.3.92 (). […]


Decoding the dynamic DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation landscapes in endodermal lineage intermediates during pancreatic differentiation of hESC

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5888657
PMID: 29394393

[…] ended). Single-end reads were mapped to GRCh37/hg19 assembly using bsmap with the ‘-v 2 -n 1 -q 3 -r 0’ parameter. Duplicate reads were treated using macs2 filterdup with the ‘–keep-dup 2’ parameter. in RSeQC was used to transform the bam file to normalized bigWig files with the parameter ‘-t 2000000000’. Finally, the combined tracks for UCSC Genome Browser were generated. Macs2 was use […]


Pancreatic gene expression during recovery after pancreatitis reveals unique transcriptome profiles

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5780441
PMID: 29362419
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19392-0

[…] een genders, the recovery time was adjusted as a covariate. RNA-seq mapping statistics are provided in Supplementary Table .The alignment results (bam files) were converted to bigWig format using the bam2wig tool of RSeQC, for the visualization of read coverage in Integrated Genomics Viewer (IGV) genome browser. The total read coverage of each sample was normalized to 10Mbp, so that the peaks of d […]


Genome analysis of Diploscapter coronatus: insights into molecular peculiarities of a nematode with parthenogenetic reproduction

Crop wild relative populations of Beta vulgaris allow direct mapping of agronomically important genes

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5467160
PMID: 28585529
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms15708

[…] The resulting single BAM file was used as input for provided by AUGUSTUS to create intron part hints (option --I). To create exon part hints, BAM files were converted to WIG files using bam2wig and used to generate the hint file using The structural annotation and information on transcript evidence of the 53,190 predicted WB42 genes is available in the file WB42_v2.gff3 […]


Transcriptional regulatory logic of the diurnal cycle in the mouse liver

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 5393560
PMID: 28414715
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.2001069

[…] Wig files were generated using the bam2wig script [] and were normalized by the number of mapped reads divided by 107. DNase I signal is represented using the first position of the read alignments considered as the cutting position and […]
