Circulating miRNAs, isomiRs and small RNA clusters in human plasma and breast milk

PLoS One
PMCID: 5837101
PMID: 29505615
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193527

[…] Sequences fulfilling QC were used as the input for the seqBuster/seqCluster tool that retrieves three matrices of counts: i) miRNA, ii) isomiRs, and iii) small RNA clusters [, ]. In order to detect miRNAs and isomiRs, reads were mapped to hairpins release […]


Functional Redundancy of DICER Cofactors TARBP2 and PRKRA During Murine Embryogenesis Does Not Involve miRNA Biogenesis

PMCID: 5887145
PMID: 29467169
DOI: 10.1534/genetics.118.300791
call_split See protocol

[…] w reads were collapsed based on sequence identity using the module of mirdeep2. Collapsed reads were further annotated for miRNA by mapping to miRBase version 21 (; ; ) using the miraligner module of seqbuster (). IsomiRs were identified using the R isomiRs (v1.3.0) package of seqbuster. Pairwise differential expression was performed among different groups using DESEQ2 (v1.12. […]


Regional and subtype dependent miRNA signatures in sporadic Creutzfeldt Jakob disease are accompanied by alterations in miRNA silencing machinery and biogenesis

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5794191
PMID: 29357384
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006802
call_split See protocol

[…] Reads were trimmed to 36 nt and ligation adapters were removed using the adrec.jar program from the seqBuster suite ( [] with the following options: java -jar adrec.jar 1 8 0.3. Sequences were mapped to the hg19 genome with the command line: bowtie -f -v 1 –a–bes […]


The dynamic recruitment of TRBP to neuronal membranes mediates dendritogenesis during development

PMCID: 5835843
PMID: 29263199
DOI: 10.15252/embr.201744853

[…] ucleotides. The remaining reads were mapped to the rat mature miRNAs (miRBase v21) using default parameters (one mismatch, 3 nt in the 3′ or 5′‐trimming variants, 3 nt in the 3′‐addition variants) of Miraligner software . For mature miRNA analysis, only those that are represented by at least 10 reads per million (RPM) in one of the conditions were considered. Differential expression analysis of mi […]


Non coding RNA analysis in fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma

PMCID: 5828204
PMID: 29535801
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.23325

[…] umina, San Diego, CA) following the manufacturer's protocol. Libraries were sequenced with 1 × 50 bp single-end reads on an Illumina HiSeq 2000 system. Small RNA reads were mapped and quantified with miraligner and quantified read counts were annotated with Gencode v19. Differential miRNA expression analysis was performed using R version 3.2.3 [] with the Bioconductor package DESeq2 [] incorporati […]


A comprehensive profile of circulating RNAs in human serum

RNA Biol
PMCID: 5798962
PMID: 29219730
DOI: 10.1080/15476286.2017.1403003
call_split See protocol

[…] 9 (10 alignments per read were allowed). We compiled a comprehensive annotation set from miRBase/MirGeneDB [] for miRNAs, pirBAse/pirnabank for piRNAs [], GENCODE [] for other RNAs and tRNAs. We used SeqBuster [] to get isomiR and miRNA profiles of our samples. To count the reads mapped on other RNAs, HTSeq [] was utilized in a Python script. We used a threshold of 10 median read count per sncRNA […]
