DOI: 10.1186/s12885-017-3943-8

[…] further filtered with trimmomatic [] for low quality leading/trailing bases with phred quality lower than 20. subsequently sequences were aligned to the human reference genome (version hg19) with stampy []. additionally, the initial 5 bases were trimmed due to potential allele bias in case of single nucleotide polymorphisms (snp) present in restriction enzyme cutting sites. snps were called […]

[…] curacy for paired- and single-end reads, we randomly selected one read per pair from paired-end data from the original 99 individuals to use for further analysis., all sequence data were mapped using stampy 1.0.21 () with default settings to an exon-only reference generated from the capsella rubella reference genome (; ). capsella rubella and c. grandiflora diverged between 50,000 and 100,000 year […]

[…] described () from a single colony subcultured on cba and incubated for 18 to 24 h. sequencing was performed using the illumina hiseq or miseq platforms., for all outbreaks, reads were aligned using stampy v1.0.17 to a standard reference genome (mrsa252; genbank no. nc_002952) (). six outbreaks were also mapped to clonal complex-specific reference genomes obtained from in-house collections […]

[…] were paired end sequenced and sequenced to an average coverage between 27 and 40 quality reads per base. resulting 100 base pair reads were mapped to the grch37d5/hg19 human reference sequence using stampy and the snvs and short indels were called with platypus. variant files were analyzed using qiagen’s ingenuity® variant analysis™ software (, qiagen redwood city). high […]
