Sorghum and wheat differentially affect caecal microbiota and associated performance characteristics of meat chickens

PMCID: 5344015
PMID: 28286717
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.3071

[…] 3′) as detailed by . pyrosequencing was performed using a roche/454 flx+ instrument and titanium chemistry kits according to the manufacturer’s instructions. sff file processing was done using pyrobayes () and inspected for chimeric sequences using pintail () and error corrected using acacia (). further trimming was done in qiime () with sequence length 300–600 bases, no ambiguous […]


Efficient SNP Discovery by Combining Microarray and Lab on a Chip Data for Animal Breeding and Selection

PMCID: 4996412
PMID: 27600241
DOI: 10.3390/microarrays4040570

[…] fluorescence colors., to interpret the sequencing data and to accurately identify the snps of interest, bioinformatics algorithms for searching snps have been developed, including tablet [], pyrobayes [], soap [], varscan [], maq [], magicviewer [], atlas-snp2 []. hence, snp discovery can also result from dna resequencing analysis using novel deep-sequencing strategies. although […]


Comparison of fecal and cecal microbiotas reveals qualitative similarities but quantitative differences

BMC Microbiol
PMCID: 4403768
PMID: 25887695
DOI: 10.1186/s12866-015-0388-6
call_split See protocol

[…] to allow multiplexing of samples in a sequencing pool. pyrosequencing was performed using a roche/454 flx genome sequencer according to the manufacturer’s instructions. sequences were analysed using pyrobayes [], pintail chimera detection algorithm [] and qiime v1.6.0 []. sequences were quality trimmed as described previously []. otu picking was done at 3% divergence level, de-noising […]


Differential Responses of Cecal Microbiota to Fishmeal, Eimeria and Clostridium perfringens in a Necrotic Enteritis Challenge Model in Chickens

PLoS One
PMCID: 4148237
PMID: 25167074
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0104739

[…] to amplify the v1 to v3 region of the 16s rrna gene. sequencing was performed on a roche/454 flx+ genome sequencer according to manufacturer’s instructions. the data pre-processing was done using pyrobayes followed by further analysis in qiime v1.6.0 using usearch, uchime and uclust algorithms at sequence similarity threshold of 97% and blast taxonomy assignments. sequences were trimmed […]


Resequencing the susceptibility gene, ITGAM, identifies two functionally deleterious rare variants in systemic lupus erythematosus cases

PMCID: 4060450
PMID: 24886912
DOI: 10.1186/ar4566
call_split See protocol

[…] in the 454 data. capillary sequencing of these amplicons used the 3730xl platform (applied biosystems, ca, usa)., the 454 sequence read demultiplexing used ”untag” software []; base calling used pyrobayes []; and alignment to the reference genome used bwa []. variant calling was carried out by using gatk [] without duplicate read removal, by using hard filters: coverage at least 10-fold; […]


Mutations in the SPG7 gene cause chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia through disordered mitochondrial DNA maintenance

PMCID: 3999722
PMID: 24727571
DOI: 10.1093/brain/awu060

[…] (patients 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7) was performed with tagged primers and ultra deep sequencing achieved using a roche 454 gs titanium flx platform as previously described (). an analysis pipeline of pyrobayes, mosiak, and a custom r library was used to call and align the sequences to the mitochondrial dna reference along with a control cloned mitochondrial dna sequence. for quality control […]
