PMID: 29240831
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006767

[…] on an illumina hiseq 1500., quality assessment of 100 nucleotide paired-end reads was performed via an initial evaluation with fastqc ( and biopieces ( illumina sequencing adapters and low quality sequences were removed with trimmomatic []. the remaining sequences were mapped separately against the esmeraldo […]

[…] located at the university of maryland, college park. the quality of read datasets (sanger fastq format) was determined using fastqc (ramirez‐gonzalez et al., ); data were filtered and trimmed using biopieces ( to select for reads containing the tn‐seq barcodes and krmit itr ends. reads were then de‐multiplexed and count tables generated using samtools (li et al., ) and htseq […]

DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-02573-2

[…] samples were sequenced per run., fastq-files demultiplexed by the miseq controller software (illumina inc.) were trimmed for amplification primers, diversity spacers, and sequencing adapters using biopieces (, mate-paired and quality filtered (usearch v7.0.1090). uparse, was used for otu clustering as recommended, in particular removing singletons after dereplication. chimera […]
