Drosha drives the formation of DNA:RNA hybrids around DNA break sites to facilitate DNA repair

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5803274
PMID: 29416038
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-02893-x

[…] t all miRNA reads. Those reads that did not map to miRNA hairpins were further filtered using samtools v1.3.1 to remove other small RNA genes, including tRNA, snRNA, snoRNA, and scRNA as annotated by DASHR and also annotated Y RNA and sRNA with ensembl reference release 85. The final remaining reads were considered non-miRNA small RNAs and only these were used for further analyses.21–23 nt reads w […]


Systematic comparison of small RNA library preparation protocols for next generation sequencing

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5799908
PMID: 29402217
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4491-6

[…] r Arabidopsis RNA, the obtained sequences were trimmed for adapter sequences and were mapped to various databases. For human, the sequences were mapped to the database of small human non-coding RNAs (DASHR; downloaded on October 5, 2017) [], mirBase (for partial miRNA sequences), and the regulatory RNA database (http://www.regulatoryrna.org/database/piRNA/download/archive/v1.0/fasta/) for piRNA se […]


Small non coding RNA profiling in human biofluids and surrogate tissues from healthy individuals: description of the diverse and most represented species

PMCID: 5790449

[…] igned against human genomic sequence hg38 (GRCh38) using Bowtie2 v2.2.7 in default settings []. Reads alignment files were used to quantify the expression of ncRNA annotations from Gencode v24 [] and DASHR database []. The annotations with median reads greater than 20 were selected. Then, read counts were normalized by computing the library size factor []. The SVA [] was performed to correct the r […]
