PMID: 29310588
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4403-1

[…] 98,162 scaffolds and has been deposited at ddbj/ena/genbank under the accession peqf00000000. to obtain a more reasonable assembly for downstream bioinformatics analyses and for visualization in jbrowse [], scaffolds were filtered with the following parameters: scaffolds were removed when they contained fewer than 800 bases, or when 90% of the total scaffold length was contained […]

PMCID: 5865747
PMID: 29570745
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0194945

[…] carried out on the protein ncbi datasets of the m. truncatula, chickpea, and common bean genomes. the mlo annotations in the lentil draft genome assembly v1.2 can be accessed through the lentil jbrowse or blast function at http://knowpulse.usask.ca., the deduced amino acid sequences of the putative lcmlo genes were analyzed by several prediction programs to identify functional domains, […]

PMCID: 5408436
PMID: 28465712
DOI: 10.1186/s13007-017-0181-7

[…] <1e−160, identity to query >70% and minimum sequence length of 200 residues). results were further curated manually by visual analysis of the blastp alignments and corresponding gene models in jbrowse (https://solgenomics.net/organism/nicotiana_benthamiana/genome) to eliminate potential partial protein due to mis-annotation. as a result, 36 additional candidates were retained for a total […]

PMCID: 5463992
PMID: 28603666
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.3255

[…] to the upgma tree with the default color profile 1:4., identified genes from all mapk cascade families belonging to tomato, potato, pepper, and coffee were studied for exon-intron structure using jbrowse () and those belonging to eggplant by gsds 2.0 (). the number of exons in each one of them was recorded in the respective –. various characteristics of the genes were studied, including gene, […]

PMCID: 5519730
PMID: 28729683
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-04768-5

[…] nucleotide reads were mapped to the annotated genome of strain ua159 (genbank accession: nc_004350.2). samtools software was used to divide the reads in each according strand. for visualization, jbrowse viewer was employed. differential expression analyses of samples with and without xip were determined based on the mapped read profiles using a perl script. the read counts were subjected […]

[…] whether the gene is known to cause early lethality in mice obtained from the mgi database release 6.10 (i.e. phenotypes from null-mutant mice) []. we manually examined all predicted el variants in jbrowse [] to exclude false positives that derived from sequencing and mapping errors. significant differences in hatchability between carrier by carrier versus carrier by non-carrier phenotypes […]
