IMSindel: An accurate intermediate size indel detection tool incorporating de novo assembly and gapped global local alignment with split read analysis

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5884821
PMID: 29618752
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23978-z

[…] els. They can mainly be classified into three approaches: (1) realignment based approach (GATK, Scalpel, SV-STAT), (2) split-read approach (PINDEL, Splitread, PRISM), and (3) local assembly approach (SOAPindel). Recently, hybrid approaches that integrate these approaches have also been developed, resulting in more sensitive indel discovery methods than these approaches independently (ScanIndel).He […]


Intraspecific comparative genomics of isolates of the Norway spruce pathogen (Heterobasidion parviporum) and identification of its potential virulence factors

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5870257
PMID: 29580224
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4610-4

[…] sulting subreads were self-corrected by Falcon Genome Assembly Tool Kit v.0.3.0 and assembled into contigs by Celera Assembler v.8.3 [] followed by single base corrections using SOAPsnp v.1.05 [] and SOAPInDel v.1.08 [] pipelines with HiSeq PE reads. Scaffolding was performed by SSPACE- LongRead [] using HiSeq MP reads.Filtered reads of re-sequenced isolates were assembled de novo by VelvetOptimis […]


Whole Genome Sequence of the 1,4 Dioxane Degrading Bacterium Mycobacterium dioxanotrophicus PH 06

[…] ntig with a length close to the estimated genome size, and Illumina reads were used to correct and optimize the assembly results. Third, the contig’s bases were corrected with Quiver, Pilon, SOAPsnp, SOAPindel (, and GATK ( Fourth, contig circle analysis was completed by verifying overlap regions. Fifth, Glimmer (), TRF (), RNAmmer ve […]


Genome sequencing and analysis of Talaromyces pinophilus provide insights into biotechnological applications

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5428652
PMID: 28352091
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-00567-0

[…] reducing as many captured gaps as possible using software PBJelly. To improve the accuracy of the genome sequences, GATK ( and SOAP tool packages (SOAP2, SOAPsnp, SOAPindel), were used to make single-base corrections.A DNA library of 500 bp inserts was constructed and PE sequenced. For generated HiSeq reads, Q20, representing the probability of the incorrectne […]


Genome wide sequencing of longan (Dimocarpus longan Lour.) provides insights into molecular basis of its polyphenol rich characteristics

PMCID: 5467034
PMID: 28368449
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix023

[…] teps, the resulting sequence data were uniquely aligned to the reference longan genome. SNPs, indels, and sequence variations were identified using SOAPsnp (, SOAPindel [], and SOAPsv [].We used all and high-quality SNPs to infer the phylogeography and population structure for D. longan. A phylogenetic tree was subsequently generated using the neighbor-join […]

[…] ize) and one PacBio mate pair 5k/6k. To estimate the genome size, k-mer analysis was performed. Afterward, SOAPdenovo v2.04 software was employed to assemble the reads after filtering, while SOAPsnp, SOAPindel, and GATK were applied for error correction. Furthermore, whole-genome optical mapping generated at Microbion SRL (Verona, Italy) was used to validate the hybrid assembly (). The alignment o […]
