Publications for Sequence Read Archive


The Sequence Read Archive

2011 Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3013647
PMID: 21062823
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkq1019

SRA citations


Chitinase genes (CHIAs) provide genomic footprints of a post Cretaceous dietary radiation in placental mammals

Sci Adv
PMCID: 5955627
PMID: 29774238
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aar6478

[…] e species that have (T. chinensis) or potentially have (M. californicus and Desmodus rotundus) three or more CHIAs in their genomes (tables S1 and S3). These libraries have been deposited into NCBI’s Sequence Read Archive, so we queried them via NCBI’s BLAST interface. We BLASTed (megablast) all five of the assembled T. chinensis CHIA paralogs against a pancreas library (). M. californicus and D. […]


Methionine metabolism influences genomic architecture and gene expression through H3K4me3 peak width

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5955993
PMID: 29769529
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04426-y

[…] for mouse liver using Bowtie2, and filtered according to alignment scores using SAMtools. SRA files were converted to FASTQ format using the command fastq-dump in the SRA Toolkit ( before the alignment. Peaks were called using MACS2 without the --broad option and filtered with the criterion that the enrichment Q-value is smaller than 10−5. H3K4me3 peaks bound by […]


Interaction between Host MicroRNAs and the Gut Microbiota in Colorectal Cancer

PMCID: 5954203
DOI: 10.1128/mSystems.00205-17
call_split See protocol

[…] The 16S rRNA gene sequencing data were previously published (). Raw sequences were deposited in the NCBI Sequence Read Archive under project accession number PRJNA284355, and processed data files are available in the work of Burns et al. (). Briefly, total DNA was extracted from approximately 100 mg of t […]


Diversity and antimicrobial potential in sea anemone and holothurian microbiomes

PLoS One
PMCID: 5942802
PMID: 29742123
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196178

[…] used to chimera removal. The unassigned OTUs obtained were assigned using RDP’s Classifier [] release 11.4 (May 26, 2015). The FASTQ files generated after the metagenome sequencing were deposited in Sequence Read Archive database (SRA-NCBI;, with the BioProject ID PRJNA420053 and BioSample accession numbers from SAMN08104840 to SAMN08104849. […]


Genetic diversity and virulence profiles of Listeria monocytogenes recovered from bulk tank milk, milk filters, and milking equipment from dairies in the USA (2002 to 2014)

PLoS One
PMCID: 5942804
PMID: 29742151
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0197053
call_split See protocol

[…] nomes were sequenced by using 250-bp paired-end libraries, with a MiSeq reagent kit (v2), on a MiSeq system (Illumina), per the manufacturer's instructions. Raw sequencing reads were deposited in the NCBI SRA database under BioProject PRJNA215355 (Listeria monocytogenes database, US Food and Drug Administration GenomeTrakr Project) (). Sequencing contaminants were trimmed and removed using Trimmom […]


Ouroboros resembling competitive endogenous loop (ORCEL) in circular RNAs revealed through transcriptome sequencing dataset analysis

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5954272
PMID: 29764361
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4456-9

[…] The data analysis process of this research is summarized in Fig. . First, to identify circRNA, transcriptome sequencing data sets were obtained from the NCBI Sequence Read Archive (SRA). The back-spliced junction sites in each RNA-seq sample were identified using a circRNA discovery pipeline adapting the scripts provided on circBase [, ], which was referre […]
