Structural signatures of thermal adaptation of bacterial ribosomal RNA, transfer RNA, and messenger RNA

PLoS One
PMCID: 5598986
PMID: 28910383
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0184722

[…] quences were built from the bacterial species with known OGTs. We obtained 729 prokaryote species with OGTs compiled by Lobry and Necsulea [] and 131 extremophile species with OGTs available from the BacDive metadatabase []. The scientific names of these species were mapped to NCBI’s taxon identifiers (taxids) []. After limiting to bacterial species and only one strain per species, we obtained 536 […]

Databases for Microbiologists

J Bacteriol
PMCID: 4505447
PMID: 26013493
DOI: 10.1128/JB.00330-15

[…] large collection of regular and explorative rRNA-targeted probes (), and the rRNA operon copy number (rrnDB) database provides a means to interpret rRNA gene abundance in bacteria and archaea ().The Bacterial Diversity Metadatabase (BacDive) contains detailed information on various aspects of more than 20,000 strains of bacteria and archaea, which includes taxonomy, physiology, sampling, and envi […]


The 2014 Nucleic Acids Research Database Issue and an updated NAR online Molecular Biology Database Collection

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3965027
PMID: 24316579
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkt1282

[…] ially sequenced microbial genomes makes particularly important their proper classification, which increasingly relies on such resources as the Ribosomal Database Project (RDP), the Silva/LTP project, BacDive at the DSMZ-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures and the List of Prokaryotic Names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN) (). The new MetaRef database collects from reference mi […]
