Endurance training remodels sperm borne small RNA expression and methylation at neurological gene hotspots

Clin Epigenetics
PMCID: 5785820
PMID: 29416570
DOI: 10.1186/s13148-018-0446-7

[…] ences were obtained from miRBase [] version 20. piRNA sequences were downloaded from piRBase version 1.0 []. Human tRNAs were retrieved from UCSC genome browser []. piRNA targets were predicted using piRNAQuest [] which uses sequence similarity to predict piRNA targets. Biotype composition of sRNA is visualized as barplots with a height equal to the median and error bars extending from the minimum […]


High fat diet disrupts metabolism in two generations of rats in a parent of origin specific manner

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4994008
PMID: 27550193
DOI: 10.1038/srep31857

[…] Uniquely aligned reads were counted over rn5 genomic annotations (ensemble v73 protein-coding genes, miRBase miRNAs, piRNAQuest piRNAs and repBase repeat classes) using featureCounts. Genomic annotations with a mean read count <1 across all samples were excluded from analysis. This resulted in the differential expre […]
