PMID: 29456553
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00019

[…] on the genome assembly (rproc1 version) and gene predictions (vectorbase 1.3 version) performed by and deposited in vectorbase database. uncompleted or fragmented genes were re-predicted using exonerate software version 2.2 () based on insect orthologous proteins sequences deposited in ncbi databases. the re-prediction results were manually curated and edited when needed. re-predicted […]

[…] newly sequenced strains, 11,382 proteins of the type strain r. mackenziei cbs 650.93 (jybu00000000) were aligned to the genome of the strains ihm 22877 and dh24460 using the homology-based predictor exonerate v. 2.2.0 () with the parameters–model protein2genome–percentage 90. pathway and kog prediction were assessed using kaas (bidirectional best hit) (). putative secreted proteins […]

[…] of orthologous sequences using mafft l-insi () and generated phmms from each alignment using hmmer 3.1b1 (www.hmmer.org). we translated transcript sequences into all six possible reading frames with exonerate, version 2.2.0 () and searched with each phmm the translated transcriptome and genome (predicted proteins) data using hmmsearch with default options (hmmer 3.1b1)., because dnmt1, dnmt3, […]

[…] on the sheep longlist for independent verification. the goat genome, by contrast, was annotated with a focus on protein-coding gene models [], by consolidating protein and cdna alignments—from exonerate [] and tblastn []—with the annotation tool evidence modeller (evm) []. consequently, there are no unambiguous lncrnas in the associated gtf […]

[…] the blast 2.6.0+ software package [] with --evalue 1e-5 to search. reads were then separated into directories by gene and assembled with spades 3.10.1 []. the resulting contigs were processed with exonerate 2.2.0 [] with the protein2genome model using sequences from reference species with the best cumulative blast score to recover the exon sequences. we then merged the acquired exons of r.

[…] to the novel sequences with ncbi-blastn. all rice proteins were downloaded from ncbi (12/15/2014) and were aligned to the novel sequences with ncbi-blastx. to get more informative alignments, exonerate was used to realign each sequence identified by blast around splice sites. evidencemodeler was used to combine and refine the ab initio predictions with rna and protein evidences.

[…] the protein sequences of the chicken (galgal4), turkey (umd2), duck (bgi_duck_1.0), and zebra finch (taegut3.2.4) were collected from ensembl. the protein sequence alignments were performed using exonerate (version 2.2.0) []. all rna-seq reads were aligned against the repeat-masked genome using tophat2 [], which generated evidence of splice sites, introns, and exons. additionally, trinity […]
