[…] reads obtained after the trimming were aligned against the a. carbonarius v3 reference genome ( to check the mapping quality of the alignment, samstat software was used. the resulting alignment file was pre-processed to make it adequate for variant calling analysis. the reads with a mapping quality less than 30 were removed using samtools […]

DOI: 10.1099/mgen.0.000148

[…] using the bwa software []. the maximum number of mismatches was four, the seed length was 32 and two mismatches were allowed within the seed. files in bam format were processed with the samstat (version 1.08) software ( to confirm sequence quality and for mapping statistics. each sample yielded between 2 and 4 million reads. bedtools (version 2.21.0) […]

[…] reads were mapped on tomato genome using the spliced transcripts alignment to a reference (star) software. statistics for unmapped, poorly and accurately mapped reads were obtained using samstat software. reads count was performed by using featurecounts. differentially expressed genes (degs) were identified and clustered according to expression profiles using the ‘edger’ package […]
