An optimized protocol for generation and analysis of Ion Proton sequencing reads for RNA Seq

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4880854
PMID: 27229683
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-2745-8

[…] f gene quantification method. One is alignment-based, calculating from transcriptome alignment results such as RSEM [], BitSeq [], eXpress [], IsoEM and its variation tailor-made for Ion Torrent Data MaLTA-IsoEM [, ] or genome alignment results such as Cufflinks/Cuffdiff [], HTseq [] and MISO []; it is also important to differentiate count-based methods (e.g., HTseq []) and methods that first esti […]


Transcriptome analysis of Brassica napus pod using RNA Seq and identification of lipid related candidate genes

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4619414
PMID: 26499887
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2062-7

[…] sample. In addition to Cufflinks, there are several other softwares such as IsoEM that can be used to infer isoform and gene expression levels from high-throughput transcriptome sequencing [, ], and MaLTA [] that can be used to transcriptome assembly and quantification from Ion Torrent RNA-Seq data.The Brassica napus genome annotation downloaded from the NCBI database was merged with the annotati […]


Seagrass meadows (Posidonia oceanica) distribution and trajectories of change

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4516961
PMID: 26216526
DOI: 10.1038/srep12505

[…] e, but P. oceanica was found to be absent in the eastern part of the Mediterranean basin (Syria, Lebanon, Israel and part of the Egyptian coasts, except for the Nile’s delta). Data were available for Malta and some sites along the coasts of the Dardanelles Strait, islands of the Central Marmara Sea and Cyprus. In the southern part of the Mediterranean basin, P. oceanica distribution was poorly doc […]
