[…] of studies., data mining tools to detect polymorphism of tr loci in raw reads from sequencing assays are among the most useful supporting tools/resources. examples of such data mining tools are: repeatseq (highnam et al., ) lobstr (gymrek et al., ), revister (tae et al., ), vntrseek (gelfand et al., ), myflq (van neste et al., ). pstr finder (lee et al., ), str-fm (fungtammasan et al., ), […]

[…] (bam format) containing only reads that realigned to each locus (tested twice) was obtained for each individual, thus increasing the confidence in the identification of the alleles., we used the repeatseq tool (), with parameter -m 2 (minimum sequencing quality required value) to identify and quantify the alleles from the realignment files. this tool requires a file containing the chromosome […]

[…] from trf, mreps and repeatmasker. the genomic locations of ssr repeats were extracted from the repet annotation result and used to create a ssr region file to be used for genotyping using repeatseq., whole genome genotyping of ssr repeats was done using repeatseq v0.8.2. to do this, paired-end illumina reads from two other p. cinnamomi isolates from australia and new zealand […]

[…] a heterozygote genotype with 14- and 15-base-pair alleles, respectively. the genotype “15|15” indicates a homozygote genotype with 2 copies of the 15-base-pair alleles., we used the program repeatseq to determine the genotype of microsatellites in next-generation sequencing reads. repeatseq has been used in previous studies of microsatellites and is freely available: […]

[…] the benchmarking results as recently reported [], scalpel indel calls were filtered out if they have an alternative allele coverage less than five and a chi-square socre greater than 10.8. fourth, repeatseq (v0.8.2) was utilized to detect variants near short tandem repeats regions in the genome using default settings []. fifth, lumpy (v 0.2.6) and cnvnator were both used to call svs with sizes […]
