De novo transcriptome assembly and annotations for wheat curl mite (Aceria tosichella)

To study the impact of wheat streak mosaic virus on global gene expression in wheat curl mite, we generated a de novo transcriptome assembly using 50 x 50 paired end reads from the Illumina HiSeq 2500. Reads were assembled using Trinity (version 2.0.6) and contigs greater than 200 nt were retained. All assembled transcripts were annotated using the Trinotate pipeline using blastp searches against the Swiss-prot/Uni-Prot database, blastx searches against the Swiss-prot/Uni-Prot databases, HMM searches against the Pfam-A database, blastp searches against the non-redundant protein database, and signalP and tmHMM predictions. To reduce noise from low abundance transcripts not well supported by the data, we filtered the assembly to retain only those transcripts with TPM values >=0.5.

Annotations of Unigenes Assembled from Schizaphis graminum and Sipha flava

Transcriptomes were assembled de novo from pools of adult aphids that were feeding on sorghum and switchgrass. Reads from all replicates were pooled, normalized in silico to 25X coverage, and assembled using Trinity. Only the most abundant isoform for each unigene was retained for annotation and unigenes with transcripts per million mapped reads (TPM) less than 0.5 were removed from the dataset. The remaining unigenes were annotated using Trinotate with BLASTP comparisons against the Swiss-Prot/UniProt database. In addition, Pfam-A assignments were computed using hmmer, signal peptide predictions were performed using SignalP, and transmembrane domain predictions were performed using tmHMM. Gene ontology (GO assignments) were retrieved from Trinotate using the highest scoring BLASTp matches as queries.

GenSAS v5.1: A Web-Based Platform for Structural and Functional Annotation and Curation of Genomes

The Genome Sequence Annotation Server (GenSAS) is an online platform that provides a pipeline for whole genome structural and functional annotation. Users can upload genome sequences and select from a variety of tools for repeat masking, prediction of gene models and other structural features as well as functional annotation tools. GenSAS integrates with JBrowse and Apollo to provide visualization and editing.
