The Role of Programmed Cell Death Regulator LSD1 in Nematode Induced Syncytium Formation

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5868158
PMID: 29616052
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00314
call_split See protocol

[…] ools with the default values (). Reads per gene were counted using the HTSeq framework (). Gene expression analysis was performed using R software (). Bioconductor (), and DESeq2 packages () from the SARTools package (). Normalization and differential analysis were carried out according to the DESeq2 model (). The sequencing data are accessible in SRA database under accession number PRJNA407426.Ge […]


Effect of the diet type and temperature on the C. elegans transcriptome

PMCID: 5839384
PMID: 29515753
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.23563

[…] as R Bioconductor packages, perform read-count normalization by following a negative binomial distribution model. In order to automate this process and facilitate all group combination analysis, the SARTools pipeline [] was used. The resulting data was obtained as an .html file and .csv tables, including density count distribution analysis, pairwise scatter plots, cluster dendrograms, Principal C […]


Carrageenan catabolism is encoded by a complex regulon in marine heterotrophic bacteria

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5698469
PMID: 29162826
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-01832-6

[…] pping to each predicted CDS was calculated for the 12 data sets by HTSeq-count with the -m union option. Differential expression analysis (normalization and statistical tests) was performed using the SARTools with DESeq2 software and a bonferroni p-value adjustment was used to correct for multiple testing. Genes with an adjusted p-value <0.05 were considered as differentially expressed. RNA-seq da […]


The other white‐nose syndrome transcriptome: Tolerant and susceptible hosts respond differently to the pathogen Pseudogymnoascus destructans

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5606880
PMID: 28944007
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.3234

[…] osed sample groups using SARTools v.1.3.0 (Varet, Coppée, & Dillies, ), which streamlined the DESeq2 v.1.12.3 (Love, Huber, & Anders, ) and edgeR v3.14.0 (Robinson, McCarthy, & Smyth, ) analyses. The SARTools‐based DESeq2 settings included cooksCutoff = TRUE (perform outliers detection), independentFiltering = TRUE, alpha = 0.05 (threshold of statistical significance), pAdjustMethod = BH (benjamin […]


Adaptation of Propionibacterium freudenreichii to long term survival under gradual nutritional shortage

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5146858
PMID: 27931189
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-3367-x

[…] Finaly, non coding RNA validated by Rfam and CDS were counted with htseq-count [] using the ABIMS Roscoff platform. A list of differentially expressed genes was generated using an R software package: SARtools [], embedded Deseq2 [] and EdgeR [] (modified t-test adjusted, Pvalues < 0.05). A comparison of the results obtained with either Deseq2 or EdgeR produced a more exhaustive list using EdgeR. M […]
