[…] are then used to extract reliable alignments from SAM formatted files. The number of reads matching each genomic object harbored by the reference genome is subsequently computed with the Bioconductor GenomicFeatures package []. If reads matching several genomic objects, the count number is weighted in order to keep the same total number of reads. Finally, the Bioconductor-DESeq package [] with def […]

[…] e sequencing was performed using Ion-Torrent Ion Proton P1 system. After eliminating artifacts with FASTX-Toolkit v., reads were aligned to the hg19 reference genome using Tophat v2.0.9. Then GenomicFeatures, Genomic Ranges and GenomicAligments R libraries were used to count the number of reads with respect to the annotation reference. Differentially expressed genes in siLuc v. siPREP1 tre […]


msgbsR: An R package for analysing methylation sensitive restriction enzyme sequencing data

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5794748
PMID: 29391490
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19655-w

[…] AMtools. The rawCounts function takes a list of sorted and indexed BAM files and imports the raw read counts into the R environment. The rawCounts function internally takes advantage of Rsamtools and GenomicFeatures. After alignment, the beginning of each mapped read starts within the cut site of the recognition sequence of the RE. Rsamtools is used to extract the genomic location of the start of […]


Activity Dependent Regulation of Alternative Cleavage and Polyadenylation During Hippocampal Long Term Potentiation

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5727029
PMID: 29234016

[…] inimum depth of ~75 M reads per sample. Transcriptome alignment was performed using STAR v. 2.4.1c with default settings, and GRCm38/mm10 (Data statistics, Table ). Raw counts were quantified using R GenomicFeatures and GenomicAlignments and RSamtools packages. Differential expression analysis was performed for each time-point separately in DESeq. We excluded outlier samples, as determined by samp […]
