[…] guide-seq tag integration efficiencies. to perform guide-seq, sample libraries were assembled as previously described and sequenced on an illumina miseq machine. data was analyzed using open-source guideseq software (version 1.1). guide-seq data can be found in , and are deposited with the ncbi sequence read archive. potential alternate alignments shown in , resulting from rna or dna bulges, […]

[…] proteins such as p53-binding protein 1 or the phosphorylated variant histone h2a.x (γh2a.x) does not label dsbs directly and is unable to identify dna breakpoints with single-nucleotide resolution. guideseq, idlv-mediated dna break capture and high-throughput, genome-wide, translocation sequencing detect dsbs by quantifying the products of non-homologous end-joining repair, potentially missing […]

PMID: 27347757
DOI: 10.1038/nbt.3620

[…] high-throughput sequencing libraries generated after tag-specific amplification were sequenced using an illumina miseq sequencer as previously described. data was analyzed using open-source guideseq software with a window size of 75 bp and allowing for up to 7 mismatches relative to the intended target site. the threshold of 7 mismatches was chosen as the value where less than 0.001% […]

[…] prior to high-throughput sequencing on an illumina miseq instrument. guide-seq data was analyzed as previously described using open-source guide-seq analysis software ( and the summarized results can be found in . genomic sites were excluded from analysis on the basis of overlap with background genomic breakpoint regions detected in any of four oligo-only […]

[…] chromatin state across cell types is not currently feasible., further insight into ot effects has been obtained from direct measurement of indel rates by whole-genome sequencing [], digenome-seq [], guideseq [] and high-throughput genome-wide translocation sequencing (htgts) [], revealing additional complexities associated with crispr specificity [–]. the guide-seq approach suggests wide […]
