[…] race core set (takara bio) were used to complement virus sequences of the 5′ end and 3′ end, respectively., all nucleotide sequences determined by miseq (referred to as “reads”) were converted to fastaq format on miseq reporter v2.3 and subsequently analyzed using clc genomics workbench 6.0 (clc bio, cambridge, ma, usa). briefly, the ends of all reads were trimmed to remove adaptor sequences […]

[…] base as defined by the international union of pure and applied chemistry (iupac) notation was called when the most frequent base was in less than 60% of reads. the programs trimmomatic [] and fastaq [] were used to trim adapters, pcr primers, and low-quality bases from the reads; blastn [] was used to identify contigs and reads suspected of being contaminants; mafft [] was used to align […]

[…] to the miseq illumina (500 cycles) cartridge for a final concentration of 20 pm dna. the sequencing was performed on miseq using paired ends sequencing and default chemistry., we demultiplexed the fastaq file generated by the miseq illumina workflow using casava 1.8.1 (illumina, san diego, usa). we trimmed the sequences for a phred quality score superior to 30 (q>30) using trimmomatic (ref.

[…] provided reagents for cluster amplification and sequencing on the miseq system., real-time image analysis and base calling were performed using the compatible sequencing software rta (illumina). fastaq files were generated using casava (illumina) and loaded onto velvet 1.2.07 for sequence assembly performed on a nf supercomputing server (inspur, shandong, china) (zerbino and birney )., genes […]

[…] sequencing on a nano flowcell (2 × 250 base paired-end) with an illumina miseq. image analysis, base calling, de-multiplexing, and data quality assessments were performed on the miseq instrument. fastaq files generated by the miseq were analyzed by pairing and merging the reads using geneious 9.0.5 and subsequently extracting newly acquired spacers by identifying the 3′ end of the degenerate […]

[…] promoted tolerogenic responses. we further show that the removal of a single bacterial virulence factor, the cnfy toxin, can trigger this process and drives the bacteria into persistency., all fastaq files, files containing gene counts determined by htseq-count of all libraries and lists of identified differentially expressed genes from the different comparisons are available […]
