[…] extraction. ten ex and ten control were sacrificed for physiological contractile studies; nine ex and eight control were sacrificed for tissue sections., video images were recorded using a q-imaging rolexa-xr fast 1394 camera (q-imaging, surrey, canada) attached to a mz8 leica dissection scope (leica microsystems, inc., buffalo grove, il) with streampix software (norpix, montreal, canada).

[…] made to improve the error rate of the illumina sequencers. besides the improvement in experimental procedures, several base call programs have been developed. these include ibis, alta-cyclic and rolexa (,,). these programs consider a simple model for the regression of quality and improve base calls in terms of mismatch ratio. we examined the ibis base calls for phix and found […]

[…] also requires resequencing part of a reference genome in order to generate enough training data. the ϕx174 control lane can be used for training., another approach is implemented in a package called rolexa []. like bustard, rolexa first applies a cycle dependent linear transform accounting for cross-talk between the different bases, before using a binomial distribution for dephasing. finally, […]

[…] match on the ucsc hg18 reference genome. the results, presented in , indicate that only 13% of the reads find an exact match, and 85% of the reads exhibit variants or sequencing errors. we then used rolexa software to improve the quality of the reads. the rolexa software pipeline utilizes the image intensity files produced by the illumina sequencing equipment and performs base calling […]
