[…] in . the reference was obtained from the ncbi, version grch37 (hg19). sequence alignment was performed using burrows wheeler aligner (bwa) multi-vision software package []. snvs were called by soapsnp [] and small indels (<20bp) were identified using the samtools (tools for alignments in the sam format) version: 0.1.18,, the screening method of copy […]

[…] provided in trinity , ., the unigenes assembled from trinity was used as the reference genome for snp discovery. reads from the b. hookeriana samples were mapped onto the reference using soapsnp (with parameters -u t -q i -l 90) to detect the snp . soapsnp calculates the likelihood of each genotype at each site and then infers the genotype using highest posterior probability […]

[…] command bwa-mem). sequence alignment/map (sam) format alignment result files were imported to samtools and the ‘rmdup’ command was used to remove potential pcr duplicates. snps were detected by soapsnp and annotated with annovar. snps with minor allele frequencies (maf) less than 0.05 and deviated from hardy-weinberg equilibrium (p < 0.001) were excluded. haploview was used to select tag […]

[…] region and sequencing depth computation, snp and indel calling, and cnv detection. first, a novel three-step computational frame work for cnv was applied. then, snps and indels were called using soapsnp software and sam tools pileup software, respectively. a snp or indel was be filtered if it could not follow the criterion: supported by at least 10 reads and > 20% of the total reads.

[…] or 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 […]
