[…] those found in 725ri-1 mutant plants [], indicating the distinct biological roles of these two h3k36-specific methyltransferases in rice., the splicing changes in rice were further analyzed by the spladder approach []. consistent with previous findings [], ir is the predominant form of as events identified by comparing to rice genome annotation (additional file : table s2). to perform […]

[…] (n = 1,000). read coverage across exons, introns and splice junctions were normalized and averaged across biological triplicates (and developmental stages) to generate sashimi plots using spladder (). the consensus donor splice sequence (b) was derived from annotated canonical splice junctions detected by ≥10 split reads across all control samples (uninjected and wild-type) […]

[…] package () to generate a pileup file (coverage maps) for each sample. to detect alternative 5΄ splice site (a5΄ss), alternative 3΄ splice site (a3΄ss) and exon skipping (es) events, we employed the spladder software () using the highest confidence level. this toolbox takes the rna-seq alignments generated by tophat and the arabidopsis annotation data (tair10) as inputs to yield a splicing graph […]

[…] transcript integrity number (tin) across all the transcripts and distribution of mismatches across reads were computed with rseqc [, ]. the percent spliced index (psi) values were calculated with spladder []. correlation plots and principal component analysis were done with custom r scripts., rsem read counts were used as input for deseq2 (version 1.10.1) [, ]. the cut-off for considering […]

[…] v2.5.1b (). an expanded transcript annotation was generated using stringtie v1.2.3 () with gencode v19 as a reference annotation, and alternative splicing events were identified and quantified using spladder v1.0.0 (). paired differential splicing tests were performed using rmats-stat () with thresholds of δψ ≥ 0.1, δψ ≥ 0.05 and δψ > 0, and the resulting p-values were corrected for multiple […]
