[…] is kleat []. in contrast to other poly(a) read mapping approaches, it is based on de novo transcriptome assembly as a first step, using established transcriptome assembly approaches, such as trans-abyss []. in a second step, reads are re-aligned to the resulting contigs and contigs are aligned to the genome. from these alignments, three types of evidence are collected (tails, bridges, […]

[…] the minimum poly(a) read support rs appear to be most decisive., poly(a) site mapping using contextmap 2 with default parameters was compared against results obtained with kleat version 1.0 using trans-abyss for transcript assembly. transcript assembly was performed with k-mer lengths of 32, 52 and 72 and kleat poly(a) site predictions with at least 3 tail and bridge reads were evaluated. […]

[…] and kleat applied to the trans-abyss output. thus, total cpu time for poly(a) site prediction using contextmap 2 was less than a third of what was required by the full kleat workflow., runtime of trans-abyss using k-mer lengths of 32, 52 and 72, kleat applied to the trans-abyss output, and contextmap 2 using default parameters was obtained using 8 cores on the same machines and measured using […]

[…] while the redundancy in the p. excessana sequences was removed after the assembly using cd-hit []. de novo assembly of the processed reads was performed for each of the individual libraries () with trans-abyss (version 1.3.2) [], where a k-mer series of 31 to 75 with an increment of two bases was used for the libraries of p. octo, whereas k-mer values from 31 to 71 were used for the p.

[…] and trimmed by 15 bases from the 5' end and reads containing ns or mononucleotides were removed using in-house perl scripts. de novo assembly of the individual libraries was then performed by trans-abyss (version 1.3.2) [], where a k-mer series from k = 31 to k = 75 with an increment of two was used., blast searchable databases consisting of transcriptomic contigs from male and female e.

[…] only needle tissue., variation in de novo transcriptome assembly is heavily influenced by the assembly software selected. the open source software packages for constructing transcriptomes includes: trans-abyss, velvet/oasis, soapdenovo, and trinity. it is unlikely that each of these would create assemblies of equal caliber. the assembly for western white pine used the commercial clc workbench […]

[…] different ploidy at various tumor contents. tumor content and sequencing coverage for each case are provided in . structural variation was detected by de novo assembly of tumor reads using abyss and trans-abyss (), followed by variant discovery using delly (). rna-seq reads were processed and gene expression analyzed as previously described in ., in the absence of matched normal transcriptome […]

[…] bp), but of lower quality [,]. the fragments can be assembled back into full length or partial transcripts (the assembled fragments being called contigs) using different software, such as trinity, trans-abyss or soapdenovo []., an older technology still in use today consists in using the classical sanger sequencing of expressed sequence tags (ests), which are short dna sequences obtained […]

[…] genomic libraries were assembled into contigs using abyss (28) using a k = 71. illumina paired-end rnaseq reads from representative body sections of p. waltl were assembled into transcripts using trans-abyss (29) (k = 69) with the aim to reconstruct only longer, complete transcripts rather than isoforms or short rnas. trans-abyss transcripts were then used to scaffold the genomic […]
