PMCID: 5721832
PMID: 29066438
DOI: 10.1161/JAHA.117.005920

[…] total rna lt kit and sequencing single end reads of 51 bp on a hiseq 2000 (illumina). obtained single‐end rna‐sequencing reads (51 mers) were mapped to the rat genome assembly, version rn4, with splicemap, included in the r/bioconductor package quasr (version 1.8.4) using the following command: qalign(samples.txt, bsgenome.rnorvegicus.ucsc.rn4, splicedalignment=true). using refseq mrna […]

[…] with the reference genome package (“bsgenome.celegans.ucsc.ce10”) downloaded from bioconductor (https://www.bioconductor.org/) and setting the parameter “splicedalignment = true”, which calls the splicemap aligner with default parameters []. the resulting alignments were converted to bam format, sorted and indexed using samtools [] (version 1.2). expression was quantified on a gene level […]

[…] adaptors were removed; 2) nucleotides with a quality score <20 were removed; 3) reads with more than 8% nitrogenous bases were removed. all subsequent analyses were based on clean reads., splicemap was used to detect splicing junctions and different types of as events, including exon skipping, mutually exclusive exons, intron retention, 5′as, and 3′as in cscc and atn tissues. the read […]

[…] package []. this was necessary since the shapes of the distributions of log2 read counts were different between different samples., to create sashimi plots, rna-seq reads were first realigned using splicemap[], using the quasr function qalign with default value for the alignmentparameter argument, maxhits = 100 and spliced = true., sashimi plots were generated using the sashimi_plot function [] […]

[…] against the noncode database and blastn against rfam database to curate a confident set of novel non-coding transcripts. to predict splice junctions, rna-seq data sets were subjected to splicemap using default parameters., we used edger, to normalise tag distribution per library and determined the transcript abundance by mapping reads against the reference genome (ws240).

[…] was performed using the statistical software r using the quasr package (). sequences were mapped to a reference mouse genome (grcm38/mm10) using splicedalignment = true, which internally uses splicemap () counted per gene (using known gene annotation from ucsc) and normalized to the gene length and library size (rpkm = reads per kilobase transcript and million reads in library). outliers […]

[…] (qgf) of the department of biosystems science and engineering (d-bsse) of the eth zurich in basel., single-end rna-seq reads (50-mers) were mapped to the human genome assembly, version hg19, with splicemap ([], included in the r/bioconductor package quasr, version 1.2.2) using the command ‘qalign(“samples.txt”, “bsgenome.hsapiens.ucsc.hg19”, splicedalignment=true)’. using refseq mrna […]

[…] threshold of fdr ≤ 0.001 and an absolute value of log2 ratio ≥ 1., in order to detect alternative splicing evens, we had evaluated a few software for detecting splicing junctions, including tophat, splicemap and mapsplice and soapsplice (version 1.10) []. we selected soapsplice for this work, since it produced the highest call rate (detected true junction number/true junction in total) […]
