Computational analysis of HTS data and its application in plant pathology.

Piombo, Edoardo; Dubey, Mukesh


High-throughput sequencing is a basic tool of biological research, and it is extensively used in plant pathology projects. Here, we describe how to handle data coming from a variety of sequencing experiments, focusing on the analysis of Illumina reads. We describe how to perform genome assembly and annotation with DNA reads, correctly analyze RNA-seq data to discover differentially expressed genes, handle amplicon sequencing data from microbial communities, and utilize small RNA sequencing data to predict miRNA sequences and their putative targets.
