[…] sequence tag (est) database of 23,845 cdna sequences was downloaded and assembled using cap3 software [42] with default settings. the resulting contig and remaining singlet sequences were mined with sciroko software [43] for di-, tri- and tetranucleotide repeat sequences with a minimum of 10 nucleotides. ssrs meeting this criteria were selected for the presence of ≤300 bp flanking sequences […]

[…]  < 20, homopolymer stretches ≥ 6 nt, and minimum length = 100 using the script from the ngsqctoolkit (patel and jain 2012). the resulting filtered reads were used as input for the program sciroko (koefler et al. 2007) that identified mismatched microsatellite di-, tri-, tetra-, and pentanucleotide repeat motifs > 3 units in length, and a base substitution mismatch penalty of 5, seed […]

[…] to total contigs., ssrs are potential genetic markers due to their high rate of polymorphisms. to investigate the ssr contents and their distribution in uv-8b bess, we scanned the bes dataset with sciroko3.4 [24]. first, the cap3 [25] program was used to reduce the redundancy of bess; it clustered 1,821 bess into 803 contigs and left 4,739 reads as singletons. the total length of these reads […]

[…] and distribution patterns, the gss sequences of b. graminis, fusarium virguliforme, m. oryzae and t. reesei were downloaded from ncbi and scanned for ssrs using the same parameters of cap3 and sciroko programs. the ssr contents and distribution patterns varied obviously (figure 5). the ssr densities of the above species were 96.27/mb, 107.71/mb, 173.60/mb and 234.06/mb, respectively, […]
