[…] strains., ncrnas were annotated by homology search of rfam (v.11.0) () families using the genomewide rna annotation pipeline (gorap) (unpublished data), which currently comprises infernal (v1.1) (), bcheck (v0.6) (), rnammer (v1.2) (), and trnascan-se (v1.3.1) () for detection of different ncrna classes. within the pipeline, family-specific parameters and several filter steps based on taxonomy, […]

[…] (, )., rnpb rnas were identified by searching for matches to 5′ gaggaaagucc 3′, which is highly conserved in rnase p rnas (), as well as the surrounding intergenic region. matches were analyzed in bcheck () to determine the structure and type of the rnpb rnas., the following four genomes were used for the metabolic analyses: acd20, mel.a1, mel.b1, and mel.b2. two partial genomes (mel.a2 […]
