Any alternatives to BBMap’s clumpify.sh program to optimize gzip compression?

Any alternatives to BBMap’s clumpify.sh program to optimize gzip compression? 1 I’ve had some difficulties implementing this in pipelines because it randomly fails sometimes. Are there any other programs that can be used in its stead? fastq genomics rnaseq • 201 views • link updated 7 hours ago by GenoMax…

Secret BBMAP helper page – HRGV/Marmics_Metagenomics Wiki

#How to map to the assembled scaffolds.fasta bbmap is a powerful and highly flexible read mapper jgi.doe.gov/data-and-tools/bbtools/bb-tools-user-guide/bbmap-guide/. For the upcoming analysis you are not interested in the typical mapping output but in statistics on the coverage on every scaffold, you can get them with scaffstats. We want to be specific…

Haplotype divergence supports long-term asexuality in the oribatid mite Oppiella nova

Significance Putatively ancient asexual species pose a challenge to theory because they appear to escape the predicted negative long-term consequences of asexuality. Although long-term asexuality is difficult to demonstrate, specific signatures of haplotype divergence, called the “Meselson effect,” are regarded as strong support for long-term asexuality. Here, we provide evidence…

ENHANCED GRAVITROPISM 2 encodes a STERILE ALPHA MOTIF–containing protein that controls root growth angle in barley and wheat

    Significance To date, the potential of utilizing root traits in plant breeding remains largely untapped. In this study, we cloned and characterized the ENHANCED GRAVITROPISM2 (EGT2) gene of barley that encodes a STERILE ALPHA MOTIF domain–containing protein. We demonstrated that EGT2 is a key gene of root growth…
