Scientists from Wageningen University and Research sequenced and analyzed several Arabidopsis thaliana plants to understand the mutagenic effects of Agrobacterium tumefaciens. As part of this project, they identified a 50 bp partial T-DNA insert and named it a T-DNA splinter. BluePippin was used to remove short fragments from the library prior to sequencing with PacBio.
