[…] packages “affy”, “affxparser”, and “preprocesscore” with standard parameters. cel‐files were imported and quantile normalized as described in ., data was visualized using podbat , r, and the integrated genome browser (igb, affymetrix). r was used to generate average gene occupancy graphs. box‐and‐whisker plots were created in r using the “boxplot” function […]

[…] instructions. raw data from the hiseq (fastq files) were aligned to asm294v2 using bowtie2 using default parameters. the asm294v2.24 annotation was downloaded from pombase.org and used in podbat. the aligned data (sam files) were imported and normalized to million reads. data from independent biological duplicates were averaged. identical reads were discarded to remove pcr artifacts. […]

[…] whole target labeling and hybridization protocol (affymetrix). the data were normalized with quantile normalization plus scaling using tiling analysis software (tas) 1.1 and imported into the podbat browser program (). podbat was used to produce upregulated gene lists for the different treatments using settings for various fold changes and a p value of <0.05. genespring gx software […]
