Multiplicity and molecular epidemiology of Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum infections in East Africa

Malar J
PMCID: 5932820
PMID: 29720181
DOI: 10.1186/s12936-018-2337-y

[…] nstruct the most likely haplotypes within a patient while removing false haplotypes due to PCR or sequencing error []. Before running data on SeekDeep software, all paired-end reads were merged using Fastq-join software with the parameters: Number of percent maximum difference = 8, Number of minimum overlap = 30. Joined reads of each sample were grouped into different clusters after trimming of ba […]


Exposure to toxic metals triggers unique responses from the rat gut microbiota

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5919903
PMID: 29700420
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24931-w
call_split See protocol

[…] ustered into operational taxonomic units (OTUs) following the standard QIIME analysis framework. First, paired-end reads were joined together with the join_paired_ends.py script from QIIME, using the fastq-join tool and the default settings. Chimeric read identification and removal was done using usearch6.1. Reads were clustered into OTUs using the pick_open_reference.py script from QIIME, which i […]


Community Development between Porphyromonas gingivalis and Candida albicans Mediated by InlJ and Als3

PMCID: 5915736
PMID: 29691333
DOI: 10.1128/mBio.00202-18
call_split See protocol

[…] with 10 cycles of PCR amplification. Paired-end sequencing of 100 bp was undertaken using a HiSeq 2500 system (Illumina) in high-output mode with Truseq v3 reagents.FASTQ data were filtered using the fastq-mcf command from the EA-UTILS suite to remove adapter sequences and low-quality bases (). Filtered data were aligned against the reference using Bowtie v.2.2.6. The resulting aligned reads were […]


Repeated evolution of self compatibility for reproductive assurance

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5915400
PMID: 29691402
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04054-6

[…] te to an average of 76-fold coverage, with a minimum of 18-fold coverage in 42 out of the 57 samples. Adapters were removed using the package cutadapt (version 1.9.1), and the reads were cleaned with fastq-mcf from the package ea-utils (version 1.1.2). Reads were mapped to the mating-type region of the h90 reference (‘MTR chromosome’ in ASM294v2 assembly) using BWA (version 0.7.13) with default se […]


Tillage Changes Vertical Distribution of Soil Bacterial and Fungal Communities

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5900040

[…] Ecology (QIIME) (version 1.9.1) (). The adaptor sequence, barcode, and 30 low-quality bases at the end of each read were cut off, and then the forward and reverse Illumina reads were joined using the fastq-join method () with minimum overlap of 20 bp and maximum allowed 10% mismatches within overlap region. Sequences with Phred quality score <20 or length shorter than 200 bp were discarded. Chimer […]


Urea Amendment Decreases Microbial Diversity and Selects for Specific Nitrifying Strains in Eight Contrasting Agricultural Soils

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5893814
PMID: 29670600
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00634
call_split See protocol

[…] Sequence data were processed and analyzed using mothur ver. 1.35.1 (), and processed as described previously (). Briefly, samples were trimmed to 160 nt, paired-end joined using fastq-join software (), and trimmed for quality based on quality score (>35), homopolymer length (8 nt), ambiguous bases, and primer mismatches (2 nt). Samples were aligned against the SILVA database […]
