The Tibetan antelope (Pantholops hodgsonii) is endemic to the extremely inhospitable high-altitude environment of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, a region that has a low partial pressure of oxygen and high ultraviolet radiation. Here we generate a draft genome of this artiodactyl and use it to detect the potential genetic bases of highland adaptation. Compared(More)
Because the new Proton platform from Life Technologies produced markedly different data from those of the Illumina platform, the conventional Illumina data analysis pipeline could not be used directly. We developed an optimized SNP calling method using TMAP and GATK (OTG-snpcaller). This method combined our own optimized processes, Remove Duplicates(More)
We present the first sequencing data using the combinatorial probe-anchor synthesis (cPAS)-based BGISEQ-500 sequencer. Applying cPAS, we investigated the repertoire of human small non-coding RNAs and compared it to other techniques. Starting with repeated measurements of different specimens including solid tissues (brain and heart) and blood, we generated a(More)

BACKGROUND The relatively short read lengths from next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies still pose a challenge for de novo assembly of complex mammal genomes. One important solution is to use paired-end (PE) sequence information experimentally obtained from long-range DNA fragments (>1 kb). Here, we characterize and extend a long-range PE library(More)
