[…] a sequences were screened for the sequence of the small-RNA adaptor, and the adaptor sequences were trimmed using standard settings in Illumina's GAPipeline1.0. Processed Illumina data was managed by RandA software (). The reads were aligned to the human subset miRNAs in the miRbase database using BWA-aligner software. The number of reads was standardized by mapping each transcript according to it […]

[…] entify novel transcripts, calculate differential expression, and provide fast annotation of genomic coordinates and single nucleotide variations (revised by Li et al., ; Table ). One exception is the RandA pipeline (Isakov et al., ), that uses the whole Rfam database, and can be applied to different ncRNAs. Segtor (Renaud et al., ) is another tool that works to assist in one important step in the […]
