Widespread epistasis regulates glucose homeostasis and gene expression

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5636166
PMID: 28961251
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007025
call_split See protocol

[…] chromosome are more accurately mapped than reads from an A/J-derived chromosome []. To avoid potential mapping biases, we created an “individualized genome” of the A/J mouse strain using the program Seqnature [] with variant calls from the Mouse Genomes Project that were downloaded from The Sanger Institute []. Reads that were not mapped to the B6 genome were then mapped to the individualized AJ […]


Variation in olfactory neuron repertoires is genetically controlled and environmentally modulated

PMCID: 5404925
PMID: 28438259
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.21476.035

[…] Sequencing data were aligned with STAR 2.3 () to the GRCm38 mouse reference genome (B6) or to pseudo-genomes created for the different strains using Seqnature () to impute the high-quality variants reported by the Mouse Genomes Project, release v3 ( The parameters used for mapping were as […]


Genome characterization of the selected long and short sleep mouse lines

Mamm Genome
PMCID: 5110614
PMID: 27651241
DOI: 10.1007/s00335-016-9663-6

[…] he high-quality variants were then compared to ENSEMBL reference annotations to identify those that occurred within genes. Individual ILS and ISS genome and gene annotation files were generated using Seqnature (v 1.0; Munger et al. ) incorporating the most high-confidence set of SNPs and small indels for each strain into the mm10 reference (common and strain-distinct).Large structural variations ( […]


Genetic identification of thiosulfate sulfurtransferase as an adipocyte expressed anti diabetic target in mice selected for leanness

Nat Med
PMCID: 5524189
PMID: 27270587
DOI: 10.1038/nm.4115
call_split See protocol

[…] se samples are archived at GEO under the accession numbers GSE45684 and GSE80162, respectively. Individualized genome and transcriptome sequences were constructed for every DO and strain sample using Seqnature software. RNA-seq reads were aligned to their respective individualized transcriptome using the Bowtie aligner, and gene expression was quantified from the read alignment profiles using RSEM […]


Mutational Landscapes of Sequential Prostate Metastases and Matched Patient Derived Xenografts during Enzalutamide Therapy

PLoS One
PMCID: 4687867
PMID: 26695660
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0145176

[…] ay et al. [], which classifies reads as “graft”, “host”, “both”, “neither” or “ambiguous”. We used the Non-Obese Diabetic (NOD) genome sequences as the host reference genome (, where NOD is the background strain of the SCID strain, NOD.CB17-Prkdcscid/J, used in the engrafting. Using this host reference genome rather than the mouse reference genome (mm10) al […]


PRDM9 Drives Evolutionary Erosion of Hotspots in Mus musculus through Haplotype Specific Initiation of Meiotic Recombination

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 4287450
PMID: 25568937
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1004916

[…] e highly divergent with over 17 million SNPs and 2.5 million indels. To reduce alignment bias in haplotype-specific estimates from the genetic variations, we created subspecies-specific genomes using Seqnature , by incorporating known SNPs and indels . We then created selective diploid genomes; for example for BxC F1 hybrids we would create one for B6 haplotype and one for CAST haplotype, for all […]
