Comparative genomics of cocci shaped Sporosarcina strains with diverse spatial isolation

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5930826
PMID: 29716534
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4635-8

[…] entity between each of the 29 cocci-shaped Sporosarcina genomes, a BLAST Atlas comparing all the genomes to each strain as the reference genome were generated using the montage project command in the CGView Comparison Tool []. To visualize the results, strains with complete genomes were utilized as the reference genomes. The visualized reference strains included S204 that is closely related to the […]


Physiological and Comparative Genomic Analysis of Arthrobacter sp. SRS W 1 2016 Provides Insights on Niche Adaptation for Survival in Uraniferous Soils

PMCID: 5793183
PMID: 29324691
DOI: 10.3390/genes9010031

[…] t [] with the layout specified. Contigs were then reordered and reversed as needed to match the ordering determined by mummerplot.A circular genomic map of strain SRS-1-W-2016 was generated using the CGView Comparison Tool []. Island Viewer was used to identify chromosomal deviations in GC content, known as genomic islands (GEIs) ( []. The genome, with […]


Pacbio sequencing of copper tolerant Xanthomonas citri reveals presence of a chimeric plasmid structure and provides insights into reassortment and shuffling of transcription activator like effectors among X. citri strains

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5755412
PMID: 29301493
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4408-9

[…] , differed remarkably in the plasmid copy number as well as TALE composition (Table ). We compared plasmid P2 of Xc-03-1638-1-1 to the three plasmids of LM180, pLM180.2, pLM180.3, and pLM180.4, using CGView comparison tool [] (Fig. ). Plasmid pLM180.2, (64 kb in size) contains one intact TALE with 13.5 repeats (belonging to pthA2/3 subgroup, Additional file : Table S1). Plasmid pLM180.3 and pLM180 […]


Comparative Analysis of 37 Acinetobacter Bacteriophages

PMCID: 5795418
PMID: 29295549
DOI: 10.3390/v10010005

[…] d gene product content between the Acinetobacter phages and the wider sequenced phage pool were performed using CoreGenes3.5 []. Genome maps were prepared in Scalable Vector Graphics format using the CGView Comparison Tool [] or EasyFig [] and edited using Adobe Illustrator.Phage transmission electron micrographs were provided courtesy of members of the phage research community (c.f. Acknowledgeme […]


Genomic analysis of endemic clones of toxigenic and non toxigenic Corynebacterium diphtheriae in Belarus during and after the major epidemic in 1990s

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5683216
PMID: 29132312
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4276-3

[…] e genes including sapA (DIP2066), adhesin of Sdr family (DIP2093) and BigA-like adhesin (CDC7B_1983; DIP2014) were searched within the dataset using EDGAR. The CDS BLAST maps were generated using the CGView Comparison Tool [] for isolates in ST5 and ST8 using concatenated sequence of ISS 4060 and NCTC 13129 as the reference, respectively. MLST profiles were extracted from the genome sequences usin […]


Shared features of cryptic plasmids from environmental and pathogenic Francisella species

PLoS One
PMCID: 5570271
PMID: 28837612
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0183554

[…] each plasmid were drawn using the CGView software [], and additional labels (ori, ter, Rep, repeats, DnaA boxes, restriction site locations) were added to the maps manually. Additionally, the program CGView Comparison Tool [] was used to compare groups of plasmids for coding sequence similarity.Rep protein sequences were aligned by MUSCLE [] within MEGA 7.0 [], using default parameters. Maximum li […]
