Comparative analysis of the predicted secretomes of Rosaceae scab pathogens Venturia inaequalis and V. pirina reveals expanded effector families and putative determinants of host range

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5412055
PMID: 28464870
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-3699-1

[…] For each Venturia isolate, a quality check (QC) on genome sequencing data was carried out utilising PIQA v1.0 [], the FASTX toolkit v0.0.13 [] and FastQC []. Reads were trimmed using in-house PERL tools and adaptor sequences were removed using fastq-mcf [] based on data QC reports. De novo genome as […]


Novel WISP3 mutations causing progressive pseudorheumatoid dysplasia in two Chinese families

Hum Genome Var
PMCID: 5143363
PMID: 28018607
DOI: 10.1038/hgv.2016.41

[…] ed to hybridize and capture the DNA fragments. After hybridization, the captured DNA was sequenced on Illumina HiSeq2500 Analyzers (Illumina, SanDiego, CA, USA) and read on quality analysis pipeline (PIQA). We used BWA v0.59 to align the sequence reads to the human genome reference (build 37) and removed duplicated reads from the subsequent analyses. Sequences variants were identified by compariso […]


A survey of tools for variant analysis of next generation genome sequencing data

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 3956068
PMID: 23341494
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbs086

[…] ent, processing and visualization functionality. In addition, software tools have been published that support only the Illumina platform (i.e. FASTX-Toolkit (http://hannonlab.cshl.edu/fastx_toolkit), PIQA [] and TileQC []) or provide certain specialized functionality (i.e. TagCleaner []). […]
