In Depth Global Analysis of Transcript Abundance Levels in Porcine Alveolar Macrophages Following Infection with Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus

PMCID: 3275998
PMID: 22331987
DOI: 10.1155/2010/864181

[…] ags were mapped to transcripts and genes by exact regular expression matching to sequences in GenBank, Harvard Gene Index, and the Pig Expression Database (Japan) databases and parsed into a modified Identitag database []. Multidimensional statistical tests: Audic and Claverie pairwise test; the Fisher's exact test; Greller and Tobin test; the R test and pairwise and general Chi-square tests [] we […]


Gene expression profiling via LongSAGE in a non model plant species: a case study in seeds of Brassica napus

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 2719671
PMID: 19575793

[…] t parameters were removed from the analysis. The remaining 834,732 ESTs from NCBI and PBI were annotated based on the alignment with the A. thaliana proteome and orientated in sense using ReadSeq []. Identitag perl scripts were modified so that virtual tags from all positions were extracted from the Brassica ESTs, and the modified Identitag perl scripts were used to create a MySQL database of virt […]


Large scale analysis by SAGE reveals new mechanisms of v erbA oncogene action

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 2194726
PMID: 17961265
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-8-390

[…] the sequencing errors in concatemer sequences (estimated by the Phred quality score for each base), by using the modelling described in Beissbarth et al., 2004.Tag identification was performed using Identitag [] and chicken transcript sequences from the TIGR Gene Index release 10 and from the Refseq databank.In order to assess the significance of the differential expression of tags between the tw […]


SAGE2Splice: Unmapped SAGE Tags Reveal Novel Splice Junctions

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 1447652
PMID: 16683015
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.0020034

[…] to genes, including SAGEmap from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) [], the National Institutes of Health Cancer Genome Anatomy Project's SAGE Genie [], the Mouse SAGE Site [], Identitag [], and DiscoverySpace []. Despite these efforts, however, a major problem of tag-to-gene mapping exists as approximately one third of the tags are unmapped. Inability to map tags limits the […]
