Novel Computational Protocols for Functionally Classifying and Characterising Serine Beta Lactamases

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 4917113
PMID: 27332861
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1004926

[…] other online databases do provide some limited information about beta-lactamase antibiotic resistance specificity: the ARDB Antibiotic Resistance Genes Database ( [] and the Beta-LActamase Database, BLAD ( [].Developing a simple tool or database for relating a sequence cluster or motif to antibiotic specificity is likely to be challenging. This is we […]


Draft Genome Sequence of Kitasatospora griseola Strain MF730 N6, a Bafilomycin, Terpentecin, and Satosporin Producer

Genome Announc
PMCID: 4384148
PMID: 25814608
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00208-15

[…] of 7,225 protein-coding sequences, 100 tRNA genes, and 40 rRNA genes forming 9 complete and 5 incomplete rRNA operons. Orthologs of almost all developmental regulatory genes (), with the exception of bldB and whiJ, as well as orthologs of ram cluster genes involved in aerial mycelia formation, were located within the K. griseola genome ().AntiSMASH analysis of the K. griseola MF730-N6 genome revea […]


Intraspecies comparison of Streptomyces pratensis genomes reveals high levels of recombination and gene conservation between strains of disparate geographic origin

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4239341
PMID: 25399205
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-15-970

[…] erm enrichment was performed using topGO version 2.10.0 [] within Bioconductor (Biobase version 2.18.0) []. Secondary metabolite biosynthetic gene clusters were found with AntiSMASH version 1.1.0 []. BldB and Hpb amino acid sequences were aligned using ClustalW version 1.83 with default alignment parameters []. The maximum likelihood trees were created using FastTreeMP version 2.1.5 []. Tree visua […]
