Draft Genome Sequence of Paucibacter aquatile CR182T, a Strain with Antimicrobial Activity Isolated from Freshwater of Nakdong River in South South Korea

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5920192
PMID: 29700134
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00194-18

[…] e genome harbors 9 gene clusters involved in the biosynthesis of lantipeptide, hserlactone, bacteriocin, terpene, and a nonribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS), a kind of amychelin. Analysis using the Antibiotic Resistance Genes Database (ARDB) () led to the identification of several genes (marB, mecR, pbp2b, catB2, bacA, smeD, and oprM) putatively involved in antibiotic resistance, some conferring […]

[…] hnology, Co., Ltd. (). The filtered reads were assembled to generate one contig without gaps using SMRT Analysis 2.3.0 (). The protein-coding sequences (CDSs) were predicted using GeneMarkS (). ARDB (Antibiotic Resistance Genes Database) was used to search for antimicrobial resistance genes ().The complete genome sequences of SP140150 isolate are available at GenBank under the accession numbers: C […]


Complete genome sequencing of the luminescent bacterium, Vibrio qinghaiensis sp. Q67 using PacBio technology

[…] of proteins (COG), and protein families (Pfam). Additional annotation was carried out using the following databases: Pathogen Host Interactions (PHI), Virulence Factors of Pathogenic Bacteria (VFDB), Antibiotic Resistance Genes Database (ARDB), Carbohydrate-Active enZYmes (CAZy). Prophages were identified using the PHAge Search Tool ( Nr and GO annotation was carried o […]


Practical implications of erythromycin resistance gene diversity on surveillance and monitoring of resistance

PMCID: 5939627

[…] HMM protein models for Fungene gene families “Resfam_ermA”, “Resfam_ermB” and “Resfam_ermC” (Version 8.8). Additionally, ermF gene nucleotide sequences were obtained from proteins listed in the ARDB-Antibiotic Resistance Genes Database (version 1.1, July 3, 2009) (Liu and Pop ) and associated with the annotation “ermF”. All erm-associated sequences were combined and clustered at 99% nucleotide si […]


Genomic comparisons of Streptococcus suis serotype 9 strains recovered from diseased pigs in Spain and Canada

PMCID: 5759227
PMID: 29316972
DOI: 10.1186/s13567-017-0498-2

[…] 50% were identified to be same homology groups (HG) []. The Artemis comparison tool was used to visualize the compared data []. Antimicrobial gene-resistance analysis was carried out by searching the antibiotic resistance genes database []. A resistance gene was only regarded as a homolog in tested strains if it showed at least 80% identity in protein sequence across 80% of the length of the prote […]
