Additional viRNA profiles. A. sRNA reads from representative libraries of un-infected controls show non-specific alignment to the DENV2 genome. Panels from left to right indicate, 2, 4, and 9 dpi, respectively. Top panel shows count distribution along DENV2 genome for a representative library at each timepoint. Bottom panel shows mean sRNA distribution by size. Blue and red bars indicate sense and anti-sense sRNAs, respectively. B. viRNA WebLogos. viRNAs from a representative 9 dpi DENV2-infected cohort were separated by size group and subjected to WebLogo sequence alignment http://weblogo.berkeley.edu/ webcite to identify the relative nucleotide frequency at each position. About 20,000 reads were analyzed for the combined categories. C. 24-30 nt piRNAs are more abundant in DENV2-infected samples. Total mean transcriptome-mapped reads of un-infected and DENV2-infected libraries categorized by sRNA size group. Blue and red bars indicate sense and anti-sense viRNAs, respectively.
