Characterization of plasmids harboring blaCTX-M and blaCMY genes in E. coli from French broilers

January 2018

Authors:
Fabrice Touzain, Laetitia Le Devendec, Claire de Boisséson, Sandrine Baron, et al.

Info:
In this study of avian E. coli collected from slaughterhouses or diseased broilers, scientists analyzed resistance to extended-spectrum cephalosporins. Sequencing was performed with Illumina and PacBio platforms, and the team used BluePippin for size selection in the PacBio pipeline.

Nemertean and phoronid genomes reveal lophotrochozoan evolution and the origin of bilaterian heads

December 2017

Authors:
Yi-Jyun Luo, Miyuki Kanda, Ryo Koyanagi, Kanako Hisata, et al.

Info:
Scientists from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University and Okayama University in Japan generated draft genomes and transcriptomes of ribbon worms and horseshoe worms, with major implications for understanding the evolution of these species. For this work, the team used SageELF and BluePippin to perform automated size selection for mate-pair libraries in an Illumina workflow.

Genome-wide DNA methylation profiling using the methylation-dependent restriction enzyme LpnPI

December 2017

Authors:
Ruben Boers, Joachim Boers, Bas de Hoon, Christel Kockx, et al.

Info:

Scientists at Erasmus Medical Center determined that analysis of genome-wide methylation is challenging when fragment sizes are too small and that better epigenetic results are possible with MeD-seq. The enzyme LpnPI, they found, “is blocked by a fragment size smaller than 32 bp.” The team used PippinHT to purify PCR products prior to sequencing on the Illumina HiSeq 2500.

Mapping and phasing of structural variation in patient genomes using nanopore sequencing

November 2017

Authors:
Mircea Cretu Stancu, Markus van Roosmalen, Ivo Renkens, Marleen Nieboer, et al.

Info:
Scientists used the Oxford MinION nanopore sequencer with a novel pipeline, NanoSV, to detect structural variants from the genomes of two patients. They found that long reads are better than short reads at detecting events such as de novo chromothripsis rearrangements. The team used PippinHT for size-selecting libraries prior to sequencing.

Long-read sequencing of the coffee bean transcriptome reveals the diversity of full-length transcripts

November 2017

Authors:
Bing Cheng, Agnelo Furtado, Robert Henry

Info:
In this study, researchers generated the transcriptome of the tetraploid Arabica coffee bean, focusing on caffeine and sucrose genes for in-depth analysis. They used the PacBio Iso-Seq method with BluePippin selection for four library size ranges.
