RepeatRunner in pipeline

PMCID: 5266360
PMID: 28095660
DOI: 10.3347/kjp.2016.54.6.751

[…] we continued the study and obtained distinct results in our draft genome of t. canis. in this study, we used more recent versions or new tools as follows: jellyfish, soapec, and gatk for sequencing; repeatrunner, maker, pasa, and blast2go for structural annotation. these results may be able to provide insights into the taxonomy of t. canis, host-parasite interactions, drug development, treatment […]

[…] repetitive elements were then filtered if their coordinates overlapped transposonpsi ( hits (>30% overlap to cds, e-value 1e-10), repeat pfam domains, or repeatrunner [] proteins., the gene set of cbs6039 was also updated using rna-seq data. reads were quality trimmed, jaccard clipped, and normalized using trinity version 2.1.1 []; the filtered reads […]

[…] sets were identified with orthomcl and combined with the evm set. genes were then filtered if >30% coding sequence overlapped tpsi hits (e-value 1eāˆ’10), overlapped repeat pfam/tigrfam hits, or repeatrunner proteins., for the updated bd gene calls, the total number predicted remained similar to the previous non-rna-seq-guided set (150 dropped, no new genes added). however, the number […]

[…] of 650 bp, and a total length of 53,047 kbp., repetitive elements are ubiquitous in eukaryotic genomes and complicate genome annotation. repeatmasker (version 4.0.5) [] was used in conjunction with repeatrunner [] for repeat identification, characterization, and masking in the 10,853 scaffold sequences that were produced. the repeat libraries used were repbase (version 2014-01ā€“31) [] […]

[…] the de novo repeat elements identified by repeatmodeler and the repbase library ( were used to screen the assembled b. tabaci genome using repeatmasker and repeatrunner, which are integrated into the maker annotation pipeline []. miniature inverted-repeat transposable elements (mites) were identified using mite-hunter []., protein-coding genes in the b. […]

PMID: 27869790
DOI: 10.1038/nmicrobiol.2016.216

[…] the maker annotation pipeline consists of four general steps to generate high-quality annotations by taking into account evidence from multiple sources. first, assembled contigs are filtered against repeatrunner, repbase and a species specific repeat library generated by repeat modeler ( using repeatmasker ( to identify […]
