[…] (2 gbm cells; 3 stem cells) and glioma patient tissue samples (57 samples and 4 normal control samples)., the rest of this section elaborates on these steps., rnaseqv2 level-3 gene expression data (mapsplice and rsem computed) and clinical data were downloaded with tcga assembler [26] using build of 06/06/2014. we selected 275 samples, with 151 primary untreated grade iv gbm samples and 124 […]

[…] duplications, and w-mer frequencies. these evaluation metrics were used to understand the nature of the data., raw reads of 50 base pairs or greater that passed filtering were used for mapping. mapsplice,25 an efficient splice junction mapper for rna-seq reads, was used to align the reads and fix gapped alignments. then, a mapping step was used to identify spliced alignments. we applied […]

[…] supplementary table s5) were obtained from the atlas of non-coding rna in cancer (tanric)54. quality of fastq files was assessed using fastqc and reads were aligned to the human hg19 genome with mapsplice255. transcripts were quantified using rsem56 with 2011 ucsc known gene definitions for protein-coding genes and gencode release 19 for lincrnas. normalization and differential expression […]

[…] with >5% ambiguous bases (noted as n) and low-quality containing >20% bases with a quality of <13. the clean mrna reads were aligned to the bovine genome (version: bos 4.6.1) using the mapsplice program (v2.1.8) [18]. the ebseq algorithm was used to filter the de genes between the steers and bulls groups based on the significant analysis and false discovery rate (fdr) analysis […]

[…] gating criteria. data collected were analyzed using modfit software to discern 2n (g1), s-phase, and 4n (g2 and m) composition., rna-seq reads were mapped to the human genome (build hg19) using the mapsplice informatics tool with default parameters (wang et al., 2010). the mapped reads were further analyzed with cufflinks to calculate the level of gene expression with fpkm (fragments per […]
