[…] 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 (lunter and goodson 2011) with default settings to an exon-only reference generated from the capsella rubella reference genome (josephs et al. 2015; slotte et al. 2013). capsella […]

[…] of these samples (all samples had percentage of mapped reads within 1% of the percentage of mapped reads for the resequenced run)., reads for parents and offspring were aligned to hmel1.1 using stampy (lunter and goodson 2011) version 1.0.23 with options -substitution-rate = 0.01 and —gatkcigarworkaround and converted from sam to bam format with the sortsam tool from picard version 1.117 […]

[…] cdnas from cells of interest were then subjected to illumina sequence library preparation and sequencing on an illumina hiseq 2500., sequence reads were mapped to the mm9 mouse genome release with stampy using default parameters55. read pairs with identical outer coordinates were reduced to a single pair. numbers of remaining properly paired reads per sample are reported in supplementary table […]

[…] using standard procedures, captured using the sureselect human all exon kit (agilent technologies), and then sequenced using illumina technology. the 51-bp paired-end reads were mapped using stampy (lunter and goodson, 2011), and duplicate pcr reads were removed using picard ( single-nucleotide variants were called using platypus (rimmer et al., 2014)., […]

[…] of the coding exome, as specified by the consensus coding sequence (ccds) project,16 in both individuals. reads were aligned to the human sequence version 37d5 (hs37d5) reference genome using stampy17 and variant calling of single nucleotide variants (snvs) and short insertions and deletions (indels) was undertaken using platypus (v0.5.1).18 analysis of coding variants was undertaken […]
