[…] precipitation after 45 min incubation at 37 °c and reverse transcribed as described previously. samples were analyzed by capillary electrophoresis in an abi 3730 xl sequencer and quantified with shapefinder software []. data were normalized as described previously []. outliers were defined as above and were removed from the dataset. these constituted less than 8% of values. the average […]

[…] integrate peaks. the code for this application (which we call robfinder) is freely available on github, at we also have used other software packages (including shapefinder () and qushape ()) to process capillary electrophoresis data, with similar results., to process a dataset using robfinder, the raw fluorescence intensities for the size-standard ladder […]

[…] the make and model to be used. several programs are available for analysis; some of these necessitate the use of particular fluorophores. the first of the analysis programmes to be established, shapefinder software is mac-specific and is rigid in its interpretation of each wavelength, necessitating the use of sets such as 6fam, vic, ned and pet on an applied biosystems instrument, to run […]

[…] and 6-tamra there were prepared ddntp ladders: (most often ddgtp and ddatp). cdna fragments were separated by capillary electrophoresis (dna research center, poznan)., data were analyzed with the shapefinder program. quantitative nmia reactivities for individual datasets were normalized to a scale in which 0 indicates an unreactive site and the average intensity at highly reactive sites […]

[…] on a beckman ceq-8000 with a d3-labeled library from unmodified rna, an ir800-labeled ddctp sequencing ladder, and a d2-labeled ddgtp sequencing ladder. the raw ceq traces were processed with shapefinder to determine peak areas for each 5′ domain nucleotide. after background subtraction, the peak areas were scaled such that the average of the 92–97 percentile peak areas equaled 100.
