[…] the random tagged prime rna-seq data was first analyzed with the common ngs (next generation sequencing) analysis tools: first, the entire rrna database provided by the tool was analyzed with sortmerna (v 2.1; kopylova et al., 2012). from the remaining reads, the low-quality reads (below 20 quality score) were trimmed using trimmomatic (v 0.36) (bolger et al., 2014) and the parameters […]

[…] table s8). paired-end reads were merged using the fastq-join program 4 with default parameters. ribosomal rna (5s, 5.8s, 16s, 18s, 23s, and 28s) were identified from merged reads using sortmerna 2.0 (kopylova et al., 2012) (rrid:scr_014402) and picked from rna-seq data. non-rrna sequences, theoretically corresponding to putative mrna, were assembled de novo using trinity […]

[…] 2 version 2.2.4 (langmead and salzberg, 2012) with one mismatch in the seed and multiple hits reporting enabled. ribosomal rna was removed from metatranscriptomic datasets prior to mapping employing sortmerna version 2.0 (kopylova et al., 2012). the number of unique sequences per gene was calculated as described previously (wemheuer et al., 2015). in addition, coverage was determined […]

[…] hiseq 2500 platform with 50 bp paired-end mode and sequencing depth of approximately 36 million reads per sample., data analysis was performed in-house. ribosomal rna reads were filtered out by sortmerna version 2.0 (kopylova et al., 2012) and low quality reads and adaptors were filtered out by trimmomatic version 0.35 for paired end reads (bolger et al., 2014) using parameters: […]

[…] than 50 base pairs (bp), contained ambiguous (n) bases, and were of low quality (below 20) were discarded using sickle ( rrna reads were further screened using sortmerna ( the trinity de novo assembly pipeline was used to assemble the high-quality paired-end mrna reads (71, 72). resulting sequences were filtered […]
