Aurora kinase A (AURKA) interaction with Wnt and Ras MAPK signalling pathways in colorectal cancer

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5951826
PMID: 29760449
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24982-z

[…] The Agilent probe ids from the microarray expression experiments were mapped to their respective Ensembl ids and HGNC ids (when available) using BioMart mappings (‘Agilent WholeGenome 4 × 44 k v1 probe’) downloaded from (January 2017). Additional mapping of HGNC ids to Ensembl ids was done using mappings from […]


Functional signaling and gene regulatory networks between the oocyte and the surrounding cumulus cells

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5946446
PMID: 29747587
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4738-2

[…] ment of the gene lists was tested using the genes expressed in the corresponding sample types (oocytes, innerCCs or outerCCs) as the background. We obtained GO annotations and transcript lengths from BioMart [] and used the GOseq package [] to estimate enrichment significance via the Wallenius approximation method []. We used FDR for multiple testing under dependency [] to adjust P-values. GO term […]


Canine leishmaniasis: Genome wide analysis and antibody response to Lutzomyia longipalpis saliva

PLoS One
PMCID: 5942812
PMID: 29742167
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0197215

[…] re also removed. Markers were prioritized for investigation based on a significance level of p <1 × 10−5 []. Gene coordinates in the CanFam v3.1 assembly were obtained from Ensembl Genes 84 using the BioMart tool (available at: Genes mapping to a maximum distance of 1 Mb from associated markers were considered positional candidates. The inflation factor a […]


Transcriptome analyses reveal reduced hepatic lipid synthesis and accumulation in more feed efficient beef cattle

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5940658
PMID: 29740082
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25605-3

[…] Gene read count tables from HTSeq-count, the annotation file downloaded from Ensembl Biomart (, and sample information file were used for differential gene expression statistical analyses using edgeR. Genes withi […]


Bidirectional promoters exhibit characteristic chromatin modification signature associated with transcription elongation in both sense and antisense directions

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5930751
PMID: 29716520
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4697-7

[…] The list of bidirectional genes was obtained from [] and each transcript there in was converted to its cognate ENSEMBL ID using the BioMart package in R [, ]. After removing transcripts that no longer were considered to be true bonafide transcripts in the hg19 version, transcript pairs with overlapping transcription start sites we […]


Genomic insights into natural selection in the common loon (Gavia immer): evidence for aquatic adaptation

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 5921391
PMID: 29703132
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-018-1181-6

[…] lease 81) []. We generated BLASTn [] results using a custom-formatted script for 12-column tabular output. Gene names were then retrieved for each hit in the BLAST tabular output by using the Ensembl BiomaRt web interface []. To check whether we retrieve the same genomic region, chicken genes were subsequently mapped back to common loon scaffolds using a custom Python script. […]
