PMID: 28790409
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-07866-6

[…] the rna-seq reads for all 19 magic founders as available in the gsm764077-gsm764082 and gse53197 releases for each of the three organs (seedling, root, and stage-12 floral bud) were aligned with palmapper to the arabidopsis genome for read quantification after gan et al.. the quantification of gene expression and normalization were as described previously, and normalized expression (sense […]

PMID: 28179367
DOI: 10.1534/genetics.116.192823

[…] lane, samples were barcoded and run in 13-plexes to give ∼14 million reads per sample., all libraries were aligned to the tair10 reference gene set augmented by any novel genes reported in using palmapper v0.6 (), following a variation-aware alignment approach. genome variants collected from the 19 founder strains, as well as variants reported for a diverse natural population () […]

[…] fully sequenced genomes and transcriptomes () from plants grown at 10° and 16°. here, rna had been prepared from whole rosettes collected at the 9-true-leaf stage. rna reads had been aligned using palmapper aligner using a variant-aware alignment strategy. reads that were longer than 24 bp and uniquely mapped into the exonic regions had been used to quantify expression. further details […]

[…] mapped to locate exons, then unmapped reads are split and aligned independently to identify exon junctions [, ]. several other mappers exist that are optimized to identify snps or indels (gsnap [], palmapper [] mapsplice []), detect non-canonical splice junctions (star [], mapsplice []), achieve ultra-fast mapping (gem []) or map long-reads (star []). important parameters to consider […]

[…] novel spliced transcripts consisting of novel splicing events of known annotated exons. several programs are available for such analysis, including qpalma, splicemap, mapsplice, tophat, gsnap and palmapper, in which the tophat algorithm pairs candidate exons and evaluates the alignment of reads to such candidates (). in this study, mrna for 29,997 genes was detected including 15,518 novel […]
