A direct link between MITF, innate immunity, and hair graying

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 5933715
PMID: 29723194
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.2003648
call_split See protocol

[…] (v. 2.3.0e) software using default parameters. RNA-seq reads that mapped to genomic locations for known rRNAs (obtained from the UCSC genome browser) were filtered using included in the RSeQC package (v. 2.3.7). RNA-seq read counts were calculated with the htseq_count (v. 0.5.3p3) software using annotations for protein coding genes obtained from Ensembl (release 67), thus obtaining c […]


Global H3.3 dynamic deposition defines its bimodal role in cell fate transition

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5906632
PMID: 29670118
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03904-7

[…] Quality control of the RNA-Seq raw files was performed using RSeQC software and SeqMonk ( This was followed by mapping to mm9 genome assembly using STAR aligner. Reads with more than two mismatches we […]


Unifying cancer and normal RNA sequencing data from different sources

Sci Data
PMCID: 5903355
PMID: 29664468
DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2018.61

[…] This file was then used with RSEM to quantify gene expression. The program ‘rsem-calculate-expression’ in the RSEM package requires strand specificity of the RNA-seq sample, which is estimated using RseQC.We also used the transcript quantification tool FeatureCounts to generate integer-based read counts. Overall, the output of FeatureCounts was highly consistent with that of RSEM (Spearman correl […]


Helicase like transcription factor expression is associated with a poor prognosis in Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

BMC Cancer

DOI: 10.1186/s12885-018-4215-y

[…] scripts as well as predict and estimate expression of novel isoforms. Pre- and post-alignment quality control was performed with FastQC ( and RSeQC (, respectively. […]


Adar3 Is Involved in Learning and Memory in Mice

Front Neurosci
PMCID: 5914295
PMID: 29719497
DOI: 10.3389/fnins.2018.00243

[…] gned against assembly GRCm38.p4 of the mouse genome with STAR v2.5.1a (Dobin et al., ) using a pre-built index based on GENCODE m10. Statistics and quality control of the alignment was performed with RSeQC v2.6.1 (Wang et al., ). Quantification of the aligned reads was performed with RSEM v1.2.26 (Li and Dewey, ). Genes with low counts were filtered out and only genes with 10 counts in at least 2 […]

PMID: 29653508
DOI: 10.1186/s12861-018-0169-1

[…] ed to index the genomes. The mapping statistics and the coverage of the gene body by the RNA-seq reads were calculated by using and, respectively, implemented in the RSeQC package []. […]
