[…] erformed by principal component analysis and hierarchical clustering. Gene ontology analyses were performed by DAVID ( and visualized by REVIGO ( The TopHat-fusion tool was used for the detection of fusion gene loci. […]


Molecular, Pathological, Radiological, and Immune Profiling of Non brainstem Pediatric High Grade Glioma from the HERBY Phase II Randomized Trial

Cancer Cell
PMCID: 5956280
PMID: 29763623
DOI: 10.1016/j.ccell.2018.04.004
call_split See protocol

[…] RNA sequences were aligned to hg19 and organized into de-novo spliced alignments using bowtie2 and TopHat version 2.1.0 ( Fusion transcripts were detected using chimerascan version 0.4.5a filtered to remove common false positives. RNASeq raw count files were used to construct an expression matrix using Roche's i […]


RNA Seq profiling of circular RNAs in human laryngeal squamous cell carcinomas

Mol Cancer
PMCID: 5930968
PMID: 29716593
DOI: 10.1186/s12943-018-0833-x

[…] eqR RNA Sample Preparation v2 Guide, Illumina Company Ltd).HTSeq software was used to count the reads numbers mapped to each circRNA. RPM (Reads Per Million mapped reads, including TopHat mapping and TopHat-Fusion mapping) [] was employed to calculate the expression level of individual circRNA. Differential expression between circRNAs was assessed by DEGseq algorithm. We defined the statistical cr […]


Mitochondrial nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide reduced (NADH) oxidation links the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle with methionine metabolism and nuclear DNA methylation

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 5927466
PMID: 29668680
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.2005707

[…] llion 126-nt paired-end reads per individual sample (7–8 flow cell lanes/sample), which were aligned to the hg19 human reference genome (Genome Reference Consortium GRCh37 from February 2009) [] with TopHat-Fusion function []. Composite RPKM counts within genomic coordinates of 20,304 nonhaplotype HGNC-annotated genes were used to calculate gene expression differences based on log2-transformed fol […]


Genomic and Molecular Landscape of DNA Damage Repair Deficiency across The Cancer Genome Atlas

Cell Rep
PMCID: 5961503
PMID: 29617664
DOI: 10.1016/j.celrep.2018.03.076

[…] usions involving 224 DDR genes. Among these, 464 FGs including 173 DDR genes were derived from TCGA cancer samples. To reduce false positives, we used read count information together with FusionScan, TopHat-Fusion, and PRADA. Following their filtering criteria, we used fusion transcripts having ≥ 2 seed/junction reads for FusionScan and PRADA analyses, and those with ≥ 100 spanning pairs for TopHa […]


Genomic profiling of dedifferentiated liposarcoma compared to matched well differentiated liposarcoma reveals higher genomic complexity and a common origin

PMCID: 5880260
PMID: 29610390
DOI: 10.1101/mcs.a002386

[…] To reduce false positives (), we applied an integrative analysis of multiple fusion detection methods. We first applied four tools—TopHat-Fusion (), MapSplice (), FusionMap (), and PRADA ()—to detect putative fusions in our nine pairs of frozen WD/DD samples. Then, fusions with at least one junction read and at least two supporti […]
