[…] of 422 to 502 bp (average size, ∼458 bp). all strains were sequenced using the illumina hiseq 4000 platform (illumina, inc., usa). sequences were trimmed using bbduk and de novo assembled using velvet 1.2.10, with the k-mer length set at 99 (22). contigs were reorganized by aligning to the genome sequence of the reference s. pseudintermedius strain 081661 (genbank accession no. nzcp016073) […]

[…] were then imported into clc genomics workbench version 7.0 (clc, aarhus, denmark) and de-multiplexed by barcode identity (genbank sra samn08384409 - samn0838442) and assembled into contigs using velvet version 1.2.10 [30] (see electronic supplementary material, methods for detailed methods). sequencing statistics are detailed in electronic supplementary material, table s4., to establish […]

[…] sequenced by the solexa genome analyzer at the beijing genome institution (bgi; shenzhen, china). a total of 6,045,713 clean paired-end reads were obtained. genome assembly was performed using the velvet assembly software package (11). the assembled contig, representing the entire tnav-6b genome sequence, was confirmed by six restriction enzyme digestion profiles (bamhi, ecori, hindiii, psti, […]

[…] deep-sequencing using the illumina platform. sequenced reads match with the host p. digitatum databases (isolate pd1) were expurgated and the remaining reads were de novo assembled using velvet (version 1.2.10) with default parameters40. all contigs were subjected to blastn and blastx alignments against the ncbi database to search for viral sequences. the 5′- and 3′-terminal […]

[…] kit, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. the number of paired reads per sample ranged from 941,320 to 1,389,798. the average g+c content was 52.5% (8). de novo assembly was performed using velvet 1.2.10 set at default for all parameters (9). contigs were organized by aligning to the genome sequence of the reference strain s. typhimurium lt2 (accession no. nc_003197) using mauve […]
