Genomic Characterization of Sixteen Yersinia enterocolitica Infecting Podoviruses of Pig Origin

PMCID: 5923468
PMID: 29614052
DOI: 10.3390/v10040174

[…] novo assembly pipeline [] and alignment using the computers at the Centers for Scientific Computing []. The genome sequences were aligned using the multiple sequence alignment program MAFFT [] at the Chipster platform []. The annotations were performed using RAST server [] and manually annotated using the Artemis genome browser and annotation tool []. Some RAST-identified open reading frames (ORFs […]


Prevention of chemotherapy‐induced cachexia by ACVR2B ligand blocking has different effects on heart and skeletal muscle

PMCID: 5879968
PMID: 29230965
DOI: 10.1002/jcsm.12265

[…] ysis and quality control. Raw data were normalized with quantile normalization (including log2‐transformation of the data), data quality was assessed, and statistical analyses were performed by using Chipster software (IT Center for Science, Espoo, Finland). Statistically significant differences in individual genes between the groups were tested by using Empirical Bayes statistics and the Benjamin […]


Challenges in the Setup of Large scale Next Generation Sequencing Analysis Workflows

Comput Struct Biotechnol J
PMCID: 5683667
PMID: 29158876
DOI: 10.1016/j.csbj.2017.10.001

[…] the-shelf pipeline solutions for commonly used analysis tasks, which can however be modified in a flexible and interactive way. Other publicly available analysis workflow systems include QuickNGS , , Chipster , ExScalibur , and many others (). Regarding the setup of the overall architecture, the daily operation and the choice of the particular tools, especially in customized pipelines, a user of a […]


Application of dual reading domains as novel reagents in chromatin biology reveals a new H3K9me3 and H3K36me2/3 bivalent chromatin state

PMCID: 5613355
PMID: 28946896
DOI: 10.1186/s13072-017-0153-1
call_split See protocol

[…] 200 bps corresponding to mononucleosomes were isolated from gel and used for library generation. Around 35–60 million, 100-nt sequence reads were obtained and mapped to hg38 with bowtie [] within the Chipster or Galaxy platform [, ] retaining only uniquely mapped reads. Peaks were called with MACS [] using the broad option and using MACS2 within the Chipster platform. Peak intersection was determi […]

[…] tching the host genome and de novo sequence assembly were performed using MIRA version 4.0.2. ( on CSC (IT Center for Science Ltd., Finland) Taito supercluster. Chipster v.3.1.0. was applied for the generation of subsets and any other handling of the data []. The reptarenavirus genomes de novo assembled from the parents’ samples were used to map the reads mat […]
