DOI: 10.1186/s12940-018-0387-9

[…] were localized to other functional domains (fig. ).fig. 2, since pot1 haploin sufficiency has been reported to cause telomere elongation in cll and glioma [], we estimated telomere length via telseq [] and identified a significantly longer age-adjusted mean telomere length in ur-cll tumors compared with un-cll (table and p = 0.009 in fig. )., we further analyzed telomere length […]

[…] fantom5 hg19 enhancer sites (accession 29/11/2012), and promoter regions derived from version 71 of the ensembl annotation (−2000 to +200 bp of tss) were used. telomere lengths were analyzed using ‘telseq’., sample preparation: pbmcs of t-pll patients (>95% purity of t-cells) and cd3+ t-cells isolated from pb of healthy donors (see “magnetic-bead based cell enrichment“ for details on cell […]

[…] given biopsy segment by multiplying the number of mutations detected in the exome of the clones derived from the bulk cells by 10 ()., the average length of the telomeric repeats was estimated using telseq []. in newborns, the average length of the telomere restriction fragments (trfs) has been estimated to be approximately 11 kb [, ]. trfs have been shown to contain 1 kb dna […]

[…] variant set is available at we used snpeff (version 4.1g) () on this snv set to predict functional effects., telomere lengths were estimated using telseq (version 0.0.1) () on bam files derived from wild isolates or million mutation project (mmp) strain sequencing. to estimate telomere lengths, telseq determines the reads that contain greater […]

[…] lastly, the candidate sites were also manually inspected using the igv software., whole genome data are mined for reads that are rich in telomere sequence, and relative length is determined. using telseq, we examined the frequency of reads from transgenic and control with different number of copies of ttaggg., to confirm expression of mrna or dna integration, pcr and rt-pcr were carried out.
