[…] using bowtie v2 on the biolinux platform [15, 16]. approximately 97 % of reads aligned for each sequencing run (additional file 1: table s1). aligned reads were visualized using artemis with the bamview plugin [17]. raw read counts for each gene were tabulated (additional file 2: table s2) using bedtools and also used to calculate a reads per kilobase coding sequence per million sequenced […]

[…] altde1 strains. remaining reads were subsequently mapped to the altde and altde1 chromosome sequence with the default parameters. samtools [51] were used to convert resulting data into bam format. bamview [52] was subsequently used for the visualization of the sequence reads against the altde and altde1 genomes. once the transcripts were mapped to the genomes, the expression values of genes […]

[…] million mapped reads (rpkm) values (mortazavi et al. 2008) separately for sense and antisense reads mapped to the insert region and flanking genes using artemis v. 15.1.1 (carver et al. 2012) and bamview v. 1.2.9 (carver et al. 2013)., sequencing and assembly of a 158,719-bp a. syriaca plastome (genbank: kf386166) confirmed a 2,427-bp insertion in the rps2–rpoc2 intergenic spacer (2,677 bp […]
