PMCID: 5220689
PMID: 28119858
DOI: 10.3389/fcimb.2016.00207

[…] (carlson et al., ). the dna was sequenced on an illumina hiseq 2500 platform through pe250 protocol, providing about 630x coverage. de novo assembly of sequencing reads were performed using edena (hernandez et al., ). orfs were identified and annotated with prodigal (hyatt et al., )., all reads were mapped to reference sequence using burrows-wheeler aligner (li and durbin, ). […]

PMID: 28183756
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.01559-16

[…] the present study, the complete genome sequence of l. plantarum cgmcc 8198 was determined by whole-genome shotgun sequencing using illumina technology. the genome was assembled using spades () and edena () software, and multiplex pcr was used to close the gaps and remove regions of low coverage (). the software program glimmer () and the rast suite () were used to identify protein-coding genes […]

PMCID: 5604783
PMID: 28818910
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00826-17

[…] genome sequencing was performed using an illumina gaiix with a 50-bp single-end run. approximately 7.15 million reads were obtained, and the whole genome was assembled into 186 contigs using edena (), with an average coverage of 179×. the draft genome of s. mutans strain hm has an approximate size of 2.0 mb, with a g+c content of 36.7%. the genome sequence was annotated by dfast (), […]

[…] with 250-bp-end reads generated 6,304,876 bp, with an average g+c content of 69.1% and 259× coverage. sequence trimming (26 nucleotides from the ends) and de novo assembly were performed using edena (version 3.130110) (, ), generating 92 contigs (largest contig, 458,130 bp; n50, 135,077 bp). the draft genome was annotated using both the rapid annotations using subsystems technology (rast) […]

[…] were trimmed from the remaining reads. the overall quality assessment of each corrected data set was carried out using fastqc (). paired-end reads from the hiseq2000 were de novo assembled using edena v.3.131028 () and spades v.3.0.0 (). the quality of assemblies obtained by using different parametrizations was estimated by assessing the number of single-nucleotide variants (snvs) and indels […]

[…] based assemblies of relatively small dna regions such as pac_ice2, and for the assembly of unmapped reads for gene discovery, the illumina reads of the 12 european strains were processed with edena (hernandez et al., ). from the same datasets, full genomes were drafted with spades (bankevich et al., ) and scaffolded with ragout (kolmogorov et al., ) having the complete genome of crafru […]

[…] into six test groups (n = 10 each) according to the protocol selected for post and core construction []., the length of posts utilized in all test groups was first adjusted using diamond discs (edena, au/sg, switzerland) in a low-speed handpiece to have only 3 mm extension above the flat coronal surface of each tooth. in groups 1–3, the entire bodies of the selected posts were meticulously […]

[…] two million paired-end reads for each strain were obtained upon filtering the data for quality and size using prinseq-lite. de novo assembly was done using clc genomics workbench version 6.0.1 and edena version 3.13 to generate contigs. the contigs obtained from these assemblers were integrated using the contig integrator for sequence assembly (cisa). this yielded 136 and 179 contigs […]
