[…] fastq filter quality (http://hannonlab.cshl.edu/fastx_toolkit). since rna sequencing data contained rrna sequences it was necessary to conduct the removal of rrna sequences from the raw data using ribopicker tool. the resulting data set was assembled with trinity (version 20130814) in accordance with the guidance provided by the developers, and the default settings. to identify retroelements […]

[…] the quality of the reads was checked by fastqc v.0.52 (http://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/projects/fastqc/). reads were separated into ribosomal and non-ribosomal sequences with ribopicker v.0.4.3 using as a reference the small subunit rna database (ssr database) from the silva project (release 119). ribosomal and non-ribosomal sequences were assembled separately using […]

[…] 2000 platform (100 bases paired‐end reads; illumina, san diego, ca). quality control and rrna content were assessed, and nondesired reads masked for further analyses with fastqc (andrews, ) and ribopicker (rrnadb_2012‐01‐17 release; schmieder et al. ()). no comprehensive reference transcriptome was available for brassica oleracea. recently published b. oleracea genome v1.0 (liu et al., ) […]

[…] of 0.01, to the 3’ end) and sequencing adapters were trimmed using custom java scripts., the preprocessed metatranscriptome reads were further processed to remove any rrna fragments, using ribopicker v0.4.3 [] with thresholds of 90 % alignment coverage and 90 % alignment identity. blastx [] was then used to align the reads against the nr database to obtain the best-hit sequence […]

[…] dna in fastq format were quality filtered, trimmed and adapters, unknown terminal bases, poly‐a tails, and low‐quality 3′ read regions were removed via fqtrim (pertea, ). paired‐ends were joined and ribopicker was used to remove 16s, 18s, 28s, and 5.8s ribosomal rna to increase the quality of sequences and relevance of the results (schmieder, lim, & edwards, ). bowtie 2 was used to remove […]

[…] metagenome, reads were merged by using flash v. 1.2.9 (), and the resulting fastq files were submitted to the ncbi sequence read archive. ribosomal reads were removed from the merged reads by using ribopicker (). non-rrna reads were queried against the ncbi nr database with diamond (), using blastx and a minimum bit score of 50. the output was imported into megan community edition version […]

[…] filter tools are read mappers such as bowtie (langmead, ; langmead and salzberg, ) and bwa (li and durbin, ), while specialized software, such as human best match tagger (bmtagger, ncbi, ) or ribopicker (schmieder, ), is less commonly used (table )., workflows are sorted by: availability of a graphical user-interface (yes-no), runtime (fast-slow), and availability (yes-limited-no). ?: […]

[…] 3 and step of 1 with a minimum mean quality score of 20, trim >5 uncalled bases from ends, trim >5 a/t tails, and allow only 1 uncalled base (any reads with uncalled bases were later removed). ribopicker (version 0.4.3; schmieder et al., ) was used to identify rrna reads in metatranscriptome libraries. the default parameters (50% coverage, 75% identity, 30 base align length, bwa-sw z-best […]

[…] quality-filtered (leading:20, trailing:20, slidingwindow:4:20, minlen:100) and adaptors were removed using trimmomatic software (v0.33). shotgun reads matching the 16s rrna gene were selected using ribopicker (standalone-0.4.3) after reads alignment on silva and ribosomal database project (rdp) databases. paired-end reads were merged using flash (v1.2.11) using options (−m 80) for amplicons […]

[…] (wormbase ws255; http://parasite.wormbase.org; []) using the star transcriptome aligner []. prior to downstream analysis, rrna-like sequences were removed from the metatranscriptomic dataset using ribopicker-0.4.3 (http://ribopicker.sourceforge.net; []). blastn algorithm [] was used to compare the non-redundant mrna dataset for t. muris evs to the nucleotide sequence collection (nt) from ncbi […]
