Comparative Genomics of a Helicobacter pylori Isolate from a Chinese Yunnan Naxi Ethnic Aborigine Suggests High Genetic Divergence and Phage Insertion

PLoS One
PMCID: 4370579
PMID: 25799515
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0120659

[…] high diversity were quite consistent with our previous study, from which twelve variable genomic regions were identified based on a high density genome tiling microarray technology. In a picture from BLASTATLAS, four regions with the greatest genome diversity were labeled with a brown arc line. The gene clusters from these regions mainly encoded the type IV secretion system 4, the type IV secretio […]


Comparative genome analysis reveals the molecular basis of nicotine degradation and survival capacities of Arthrobacter

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4342571
PMID: 25721465
DOI: 10.1038/srep08642

[…] ses, such as an overview of genomic conserved regions, orthologous group categorization, and orthologous relationship analysis, were performed in order to identify conserved and strain-specific CDSs. BLASTatlas tool was used to compare the genomes of the seven Arthrobacter strains and to provide a quick overview of the conserved genomic regions (). The genome of TC1 was used as a reference because […]


Comparative genomic analysis and phenazine production of Pseudomonas chlororaphis, a plant growth promoting rhizobacterium

Genom Data
PMCID: 4535895
PMID: 26484173
DOI: 10.1016/j.gdata.2015.01.006

[…] s syringae. P. chlororaphis may share a more recent common ancestor with P. fluorescens than with P. syringae.Conserved and specific regions in the genome can be identified through global alignments. BLASTatlas gives an overview of the whole genome homology, and the reference genome can be compared at the gene and/or protein level against many genomes . In this study, the reference genome of HT66 […]


Comparative profiling of the transcriptional response to iron restriction in six serotypes of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae with different virulence potential

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 2777879
PMID: 19860885
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2148-9-258

[…] The BlastAtlas plots were constructed as described previously [,]. The pangenome plot, and proteome matrix were constructed as described []. For building the atlas, the genomes were automatically annotate […]
