[…] used to make Illumina libraries which were sequenced on four lanes of HiSeq X in 151 bp paired-end mode. Sequence data were deposited in ENA under accession ERP016250. FASTQ files were analysed using Computel (v0.3, options: -proc 4 -nchr 25 -lgenome 1371719383 -pattern TTAGGG). FASTQ files were also aligned to the Zv9 reference genome using BWA (v0.7.15, options: mem -t 14 -p -Y -K 100000000) an […]


Integration of Telomere Length Dynamics into Systems Biology Framework: A Review

PMCID: 4912229
PMID: 27346946
DOI: 10.4137/GRSB.S39836

[…] aled that mutations in ATRX gene associated with chromatin remodeling, but not TERT are linked to increased telomere length, where the latter was measured with TelSeq.Another set of studies have used Computel for measurement of telomere length from the available NGS data. A quantitative trait association study performed on whole genomes of 168 South Asians has revealed ADARB2 gene, with SNPs signi […]
