RNA CoMPASS citations


A comprehensive next generation sequencing based virome assessment in brain tissue suggests no major virus tumor association

PMCID: 4940872
PMID: 27402152
DOI: 10.1186/s40478-016-0338-z

[…] samples with the remaining 15 samples showing low abundance HAdV-C read levels Additional file : File S3 and Additional file : Figures S109-S132. HAdV-C was also detected in the same 9 samples using RNA CoMPASS (Additional file : Figures S112-S132). Despite detecting HAdV-C in these samples, viral read coverage was primarily limited to the same three small regions of the genome in the majority of […]


Transcriptomic Crosstalk between Fungal Invasive Pathogens and Their Host Cells: Opportunities and Challenges for Next Generation Sequencing Methods

PMCID: 5753088
PMID: 29376924
DOI: 10.3390/jof2010007

[…] a holistic fashion to infer inter-species regulatory networks []. Several computer applications have been designed with the objective of analyzing dual RNA-seq data in different contexts. Among them, RNA CoMPASS is a user-friendly RNA-seq pipeline for the analysis of transcriptomes from diverse biological specimens that can be adapted to dual RNA-seq data []. Other applications, such as NetGenerat […]


Microbial Contamination in Next Generation Sequencing: Implications for Sequence Based Analysis of Clinical Samples

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 4239086
PMID: 25412476
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1004437

[…] removal (ROUT) method in GraphPad Prism [version 6 Mac, www.graphpad.com]) and excluded from the analysis.Metatranscriptome analysis was performed using our computational pathogen detection pipeline, RNA CoMPASS . Briefly, reads ranging from 42–101 nucleotides long were aligned to the human reference genome, hg19 (UCSC), plus a splice junction database (which was generated using the make transcrip […]


Differences in Gastric Carcinoma Microenvironment Stratify According to EBV Infection Intensity: Implications for Possible Immune Adjuvant Therapy

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 3649992
PMID: 23671415
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1003341

[…] RNA CoMPASS (Xu et al., unpublished) a graphical user interface (GUI) based parallel computation pipeline, RNA comprehensive multi-processor analysis system for sequencing (RNA CoMPASS) for the analysis of both exogenous and human sequences from RNA-seq data (). Briefly, for the analysis of both exogenous […]
