[…] a few hundred cases, those approaches are not generally suitable to model many (thousands of) genes in a bayesian network. one workaround is to filter genes before bn learning (e.g.,, and also the dedup function in the bnlearn package), which is inefficient due to information loss. the genes in a gene module are either highly correlated or highly anticorrelated, and they generally contribute […]

[…] i=$bams o=$out, samtools index $out, where $bams is a string containing all individual-specific bam files to be concatenated, separated by whitespace, and $out is the concatenated bam file., we used dedup v0.9.9, part of the eager pipeline, to identify and remove all duplicate reads in the individual-specific bam files with the default options and the following command:, java -jar dedup.jar -i […]

[…] sequenced on an illumina hiseq machine. we used sickle software to trim the sequences [], bwa-mem (version 0.7.15, []) to map the wgs data to the chicken reference genome (galgal5) [], the samtools dedup function to discard duplicate reads [], and gatk indelrealigner to perform local realignments of reads around indels []., we performed population-based variant calling using freebayes software […]

[…] were trimmed to have an average error rate <1%, no bases with a quality of <q30 and no ambiguities. reads <50 nt in length were discarded; duplicate reads were removed using the program dedup (within geneious) and host contaminating human genome sequences were filtered out using the hg38 database. filtered reads were assembled de novo using stringent assembly conditions: minimum 50 […]
