Parallel evolution of Batesian mimicry supergene in two Papilio butterflies, P. polytes and P. memnon

Sci Adv
PMCID: 5906075
PMID: 29675466
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aao5416

[…] rosophila melanogaster, Apis mellifera, and Tribolium castaneum. RNA-seq–based gene prediction was performed using TopHat (version 2.1.0) (), Cufflinks (version 2.2.1) (), Trinity (version 2.2.0) (), GMAP (version 2016-06-30) (), and TransDecoder (version 3.0.0; A MAKER gene was replaced if its exons were covered by an RNA-seq–based gene covered MAKER exons (covera […]


A manually annotated Actinidia chinensis var. chinensis (kiwifruit) genome highlights the challenges associated with draft genomes and gene prediction in plants

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5902842
PMID: 29661190
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4656-3

[…] s was performed as follows. The published gene models for ‘Hongyang’ [] and A. chinensis ESTs within NCBI GenBank were downloaded and mapped to the assembled pseudo-chromosome sequences of Red5 using GMAP (version 2014–10-22) []. The sequences of the Red5 pseudo-chromosomes were repeat masked using RepeatMasker (version open-4.0.5) with options “-e ncbi -pa 30 -s -nolow -species viridiplantae -a - […]


Ginseng Genome Database: an open access platform for genomics of Panax ginseng

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5898050
PMID: 29649979
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-018-1282-9

[…] embled transcriptome structure’ and ‘repeats’. In addition, the alignments of RNA-Seq reads to the genome sequence generated directly from Binary Alignment/MAP (BAM) and PacBio contig alignment using GMAP [] were also incorporated to perk up the structural annotation of the gene. Furthermore, protein sequences of non-coding genes including microRNA (miRNA) and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA) can be […]


Intraspecific comparative genomics of isolates of the Norway spruce pathogen (Heterobasidion parviporum) and identification of its potential virulence factors

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5870257
PMID: 29580224
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4610-4

[…] first aligned to the genome assembly by GSNAP v.2014.7.21 [] to generate a BAM file as the input. The resulting transcripts from these two modes were combined and aligned to the genome assembly with GMAP v.2014.7.21 [] incorporated in Program to Assemble Spliced Alignments (PASA) pipeline v.2.0.2 [] to build a complete set of transcripts. Homologs from predicted proteins of H. irregulare TC 32–1 […]


A large scale multiomics analysis of wheat stem solidness and the wheat stem sawfly feeding response, and syntenic associations in barley, Brachypodium, and rice

PMCID: 5908820
PMID: 29470681
DOI: 10.1007/s10142-017-0585-5

[…] uctions, and sequencing was performed using an Illumina Hi-Seq 2000 platform. The RNA-Seq reads were trimmed using Sickle (v.1.33) before being aligned to the T. aestivum chromosome 3B assembly using GMAP (v.2017-02-25; Wu and Watanabe ). The aligned reads were then compared to a GFF file containing annotated transcripts of T. aestivum (variety Chinese Spring) and the read counts were obtained usi […]

PMCID: 5821079
PMID: 29463655
DOI: 10.1128/mBio.01650-17

[…] (ii) protein evidence from a UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot-curated database (downloaded on 26 April 2017) was aligned to the genomes using TBLASTN and exonerate (), (iii) transcript evidence was aligned using GMAP (), (iv) ab initio gene predictors AUGUSTUS v3.2.3 () and GeneMark-ET v4.32 () were trained using BRAKER1 (), (v) tRNAs were predicted with tRNAscan-SE (), (vi) consensus protein coding gene mode […]
