Leishmania naiffi and Leishmania guyanensis reference genomes highlight genome structure and gene evolution in the Viannia subgenus

PMCID: 5936940
PMID: 29765675
DOI: 10.1098/rsos.172212

[…] using an illumina genome analyzer ii [] yielding 26 007 384 76 bp paired-end reads with a median insert size of 244.1 bp (erx005631). protein sequences were retrieved from the embl files using artemis []. two l. panamensis genomes, two l. peruviana genome assemblies and five 100 bp paired-end illumina hiseq 2000 read libraries of other viannia isolates [] were used for comparison (). […]


Mansonella ozzardi mitogenome and pseudogene characterisation provides new perspectives on filarial parasite systematics and CO 1 barcoding

PMCID: 5906601
PMID: 29670192
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24382-3
call_split See protocol

[…] the prediction of protein-coding genes, rrnas and trnas was done using mitos and arwen software and validated manually by comparing homologous regions with a loa loa mitochondria reference in artemis. a mitogenome map was generated using the brig software package., a provisional mitogenome nucleotide sequence assembly was aligned to a set of 21 previously published nematode mitogenome […]


Genetic variability in the sdrD gene in Staphylococcus aureus from healthy nasal carriers

PMCID: 5902956
PMID: 29661152
DOI: 10.1186/s12866-018-1179-7

[…] option. all genome assemblies were evaluated using the quast tool []. protein coding sequences (cdss) were predicted using metagenemark []. the sdr-gene sequences were manually isolated using artemis []., mlst analysis was carried out for the representative s. aureus isolates. nucleotide sequences of the following house keeping genes: arcc (carbamate kinase), aroe (shikimate […]


Draft genome sequence of Fermentimonas caenicola strain SIT8, isolated from the human gut

PMCID: 5896035
PMID: 29682169
DOI: 10.1186/s40793-018-0310-6

[…] greater than 80 amino acids. if alignment lengths were smaller than 80 amino acids, we used an e-value of 1e-05. such parameter thresholds have already been used in previous works to define orfans. artemis [] was used for data management, and dna plotter [] was used for visualization of genomic features. the mauve alignment tool was used for multiple genomic sequence alignment []. to identify […]


Genomic Characterization of Sixteen Yersinia enterocolitica Infecting Podoviruses of Pig Origin

PMCID: 5923468
PMID: 29614052
DOI: 10.3390/v10040174

[…] genome sequences were aligned using the multiple sequence alignment program mafft [] at the chipster platform []. the annotations were performed using rast server [] and manually annotated using the artemis genome browser and annotation tool []. some rast-identified open reading frames (orfs) missed a good ribosomal binding site (rbs) and were corrected to a start codon with an appropriately […]


Phylogenomic Based Comparative Studies on Indian and American Commensal Staphylococcus epidermidis Isolates

PMCID: 5835047
PMID: 29535698
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00333

[…] tool version 0.95 (alikhan et al., ). all genomes were tried as reference in brig analysis, to extract out most significant atypical regions. observed atypical genomic regions were taken out by artemis comparisons (carver et al., ). pangenome analysis was carried for all 49 genomes, out by bpga v1.3 (chaudhari et al., ). a minimum identity of 50% was used as the cut-off. number […]

The Artemis genome browser is also a feature rich annotation tool. I use it frequently when I need to view my own tracks, either annotation or quantitative information.
One of the best and I think a little bit hidden feature is that you can create a configuration file with many options to change the default UI when the software initiates.
