[…] their 5′ ends using the rna-seq data., the rna-seq reads were subjected to the trimming of low-quality (less than 10 in the phred quality score; [31]) and short (less than 20 bp) reads with solexaqa [32]. the in-house blastn search (e-value cutoff: 1e-5) was then conducted with the mtdna sequence of an rna-sequenced individual as a query and the rna-seq reads after trimming […]

[…] to higher accuracy than methods where only 1 nucleotide is present in the reaction mix at a time. the next procedure is data handling, which contains sequence quality check and data analysis. solexaqa is a perl-based software package that calculates quality statistics and creates visual representations of data quality from fastq files generated by illumina second-generation sequencing […]

[…] a stepwise filtering pipeline (fig. 1) was used to identify putative lncrnas from 12 rna-seq datasets. (1) low-quality (phred score < 20) and short (length < 30 bp) reads were trimmed using solexaqa [14]. the trimmed and size selected reads were then mapped to the nmr’s genome using tophat [50]. (2) aligned reads were assembled and merged by cufflinks and cuffmerge, and then noncoding […]

[…] library in a single run to produce pair end reads with length of 2 × 300 bp. the first library was clustered to a density of 1339 k/mm2, the second one to 1066 k/mm2., raw reads were trimmed using a solexaqa package 2.237 with minimum phred 10 quality value of 30 and minimum length of 100 bp. all reads obtained in this work were deposited in the national center for biotechnology information […]

[…] using the illumina hiseq 2000 at beijing genomics institute (shenzhen, china). over 4.4 gb of paired-end 100-bp reads were generated from each sample. low-quality bases were trimmed using the dynamictrim program in solexaqa (cox et al. 2010) with a phred quality score cutoff of 20. all the reads were used for de novo transcriptome assembling with trinity (grabherr et al. 2011), […]
