Genome wide detection of conservative site specific recombination in bacteria

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5903667
PMID: 29621238
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007332

[…] Random DNA sequence was generated using Bioinformatics Toolbox from Matlab R2017b (MathWorks). Paired-end Illumina high-throughput sequencing reads were simulated using ART-MountRainier-2016-06-05 [] using Illumina HiSeq 2500 and HiSeq 2000 built-in parameters with read length of 50, 100 or 150 bp and mean fragment size of 250, 500 or 800 bp ± 20% standard deviation.

Differentiating Botulinum Neurotoxin Producing Clostridia with a Simple, Multiplex PCR Assay

Appl Environ Microbiol
PMCID: 5583490
PMID: 28733282
DOI: 10.1128/AEM.00806-17

[…] rogenes, GCF_000022765.1 [Kyoto-F]; for group II, GCF_000020285.1 [Alaska E43]). If sequence reads were not available for a genome, reads were simulated from publicly available genome assemblies with ART (MountRainier) () using the following command: art_illumina -ss MSv3 -sam -l 250 -f 75 -m 300 -s 30 -i input -o output. Positions were removed from the analysis if the depth of coverage was less t […]
