Transcriptome profiling of the interconnection of pathways involved in malignant transformation and response to hypoxia

PMCID: 5929421
PMID: 29731978
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.24808

[…] pressed. Differential expression analysis was performed with the Kallisto software (v0.42.1)+ [] on the raw FASTQ files with default parameters, followed by differential expression analysis using the TXimport (v1.0.3) [] and edgeR (v3.14.0)+ [] R packages. All hDEGs and DEGs within the model are presented in . The GRCh37 human reference genome assembly was used in all steps of the analyses. The ge […]


Gene level differential analysis at transcript level resolution

Genome Biol
PMCID: 5896116
PMID: 29650040
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-018-1419-z

[…] DESeq2 1.14.1 and sleuth 0.29.0 were used in R version 3.4.1 to perform differential analyses. Tximport 1.2.0 was used to sum transcript counts within genes to perform gene-level differential expression with DESeq2. We implemented Fisher’s method and Lancaster method with the chisq and gamma fu […]


Long Non Coding RNAs Associated with Metabolic Traits in Human White Adipose Tissue

PMCID: 5952343
PMID: 29580841
DOI: 10.1016/j.ebiom.2018.03.010
call_split See protocol

[…] M-CAT. Then the gene-level estimates, representing the overall transcriptional output of each gene, were obtained by summing the corresponding transcript-level estimates using a Bioconductor package, Tximport (). Differential gene expression analysis was conducted at the gene level using EdgeR, after applying the filter for at least half of the samples above the detection level (cpm > 1), selectin […]


Identification of Two Distinct Classes of the Human INO80 Complex Genome Wide

PMCID: 5873900
PMID: 29432129
DOI: 10.1534/g3.117.300504

[…] G2 cells (). Expression analysis was carried out on single end 50bp reads. Gene expression levels were quantitated using kallisto (). These data were converted to counts and summarized per gene using tximport (). When comparing genes associated with the two classes, we assigned genes to the nearest peak. […]


Drosophila Fezf coordinates laminar specific connectivity through cell intrinsic and cell extrinsic mechanisms

PMCID: 5854465
PMID: 29513217
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.33962.028
call_split See protocol

[…] ipts Per Million (TPM) measurements per isoform were generated using Salmon. Differential expression at the gene level was called with DESeq2. We used the counts per gene estimated from the Salmon by tximport as input to DESeq2 as quantitating at the isoform level has been shown to produce more accurate results at the gene level. As described in the DESeq2 documentation, the differential expressio […]


Co regulation of transcription by BRG1 and BRM, two mutually exclusive SWI/SNF ATPase subunits

PMCID: 5740901
PMID: 29273066
DOI: 10.1186/s13072-017-0167-8

[…] Libraries were sequenced on Hiseq 4000 (50-bp reads). Gene expression levels were quantitated using kallisto []. These data were converted to counts and summarized per gene using tximport [], and differential expression was carried out using DESeq2 [] using an FDR of 0.05 and no explicit fold change cutoff. Raw count matrices used as input to DESeq2 and output of DESeq2 are sh […]
