Mechanisms of Surface Antigenic Variation in the Human Pathogenic Fungus Pneumocystis jirovecii

PMCID: 5676039
PMID: 29114024
DOI: 10.1128/mBio.01470-17

[…] rected score of <55,000). Reverse-complementary artificial reads created by the random amplification were next filtered out (cutoff match length of ≥1,000 bp) after mapping them onto themselves using DALIGNER (https://github.com/thegenemyers/DALIGNER/) (v1.0 [options -A and -I]). The cleaned reads were assembled using the tool FALCON () (v0.2 [options length cutoff=8000m and length_cutoff_pr=1000] […]


The mitochondrial genome sequences of the round goby and the sand goby reveal patterns of recent evolution in gobiid fish

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5314710
PMID: 28209125
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-3550-8

[…] sequences were pulled out via the Pacbio long read aligner (blasr []) using the bighead goby mitochondrial genome [] as query. Local multiple alignments of the mitochondrial reads were computed with daligner []. From the resulting overlaps, five high quality reads were selected as template genomes for the error correction step. Then, these were extended on both sites by the overhang sequence of o […]


Rapid resistome mapping using nanopore sequencing

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5416750
PMID: 28062856
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkw1328

[…] mented as second step in the poreFUME pipeline. Nanocorrect has been applied previously to increase the nanopore read accuracy from 80.5% to 95.9% (). The algorithm identifies overlapping reads using DALIGNER () and calculates a consensus sequence, using partial-order alignment (POA) software (). Two rounds of error correction where conducted by the poreFUME pipeline. Finally, the error corrected […]


Innovations and challenges in detecting long read overlaps: an evaluation of the state of the art

PMCID: 5408847
PMID: 28003261
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btw811

[…] as the min-k-mer can degrade the performance of overlap detection. To minimize the effect of repetitive elements, Minimap uses an invertible hash function when choosing min-k-mers. This is similar to DALIGNER’s use of DUST; it works by preventing certain hash values that correspond to low complexity sequences. Similar to DALIGNER, Minimap automatically splits datasets into batches (blocks) to redu […]


TP53 gene mutation analysis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia by nanopore MinION sequencing

Diagn Pathol
PMCID: 5057401
PMID: 27724982
DOI: 10.1186/s13000-016-0550-y

[…] re data [], and the more generic ALEC (Amplicon Long-read Error Correction) python script [].Nanocorrect is a pipeline inspired by pbdagcon (https://github.com/PacificBiosciences/pbdagcon) which uses DALIGNER (https://github.com/thegenemyers/DALIGNER) and poa [] to correct sequencing errors in Nanopore reads. ALEC script has been originally developed for processing PacBio raw data to correct rando […]


Oxford Nanopore MinION Sequencing and Genome Assembly

[…] tion, consensus generation, and finally contig base polishing using the event data. The FASTA sequences for reads are extracted using Poretools and converted to the format expected by alignment tool DALIGNER . Potential overlaps between the reads are detected from the DALIGNER alignments. Multiple alignments are computed using the partial-order alignment (POA) software , where data inputs are sin […]
