PMCID: 5796565
PMID: 29435100
DOI: 10.1186/s40793-017-0306-7

[…] a total of 221,447,771 bases and represented 41.5-fold genome coverage. these reads were assembled in newbler 2.8 software (roche), and gaps were closed by local assembly of selected reads in staden software [] into a single circular contig., the ncbi prokaryotic genome annotation pipeline [] was used for automated genome annotation, and functional annotations were carried […]

PMCID: 5268455
PMID: 28125640
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0170655

[…] in order to test the ability of rad-seq markers to capture undisclosed genetic diversity. the products of sanger sequencing were run on the 96-capillary 3730xl dna analyzer (applied biosystems®). staden package v2.0.0 [] was used to analyze dna sequences. the overall rate of fitted genotypes was estimated by dividing the total number of fitted genotypes with the total number of evaluated […]

PMCID: 5346843
PMID: 28285591
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-017-2057-0

[…] biotec™ (pretoria, south africa) using the vector primers sp6 (5′-tta tac gac tca cta tag gg-3′) and t7 (5′-tat tta ggt gac act ata-3′)., the obtained sequences were assembled and edited using the gap4 program of the staden package (version 1.6.0 for windows) []. homologous sequence searches of databases were performed using the blastn package []. a multiple sequence alignment was performed […]

PMCID: 5364215
PMID: 28336590
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00037-17

[…] the average coverage was 26.8-fold for 454 and 171.44-fold for illumina. some gaps were closed using pcr and sanger sequencing of the products. analysis of the obtained sequences was completed using gap4 (version 4.11) software of the staden package (, ). the final draft genome of s. sphaeroides (16 contigs) consists of a single chromosome of 4.98 mb with an overall g+c content of 47.21%. gene […]

PMID: 28350004
DOI: 10.1038/srep45302

[…] gelred prior to sanger sequencing (macrogen inc., seoul, rep. of korea; biological resources facility, australian national university, canberra, australia). dna trace sequences were assembled using staden pregap 4 and gap 4. species identity was confirmed through blastn searches against the non-redundant dna database in genbank. estimates of haplotype (h) and nucleotide (π) diversity […]

DOI: 10.3390/genes9020060

[…] confirm the pacbio assemblies. the sequence of the smallest plasmid was assembled with mira v4.0.2 [] using both pacbio and illumina reads. contigs were ordered and joined using abacas v1.3.1 [] and gap4 [] included in the staden package []. finally, circlator v1.0.0 [] was used to circularize sequences, to fix the origin of replication (dnaa in the chromosome and repa in plasmids), […]

PMID: 28835501
DOI: 10.1128/JVI.01137-17

[…] strains u1102, gs, and aj (, ) and alignment of the 21 cihhv-6b genomes with the two previously published hhv-6b genomes from the nonintegrated viruses hst and z29 (, ) were carried out using gap4 (). variation across the cihhv-6 genomes was studied by a combination of manual inspection and automated analysis using an in-house perl script. the script performed a sliding-window count […]
