[…] amino acid sequences of SWI3 in A. thaliana were subjected to Blastp searches against the genomic database in Zea mays (, Sorghum bicolor ( and the Chromatin Database ( Conserved domain analysis was performed using CDD program ( The phylogenetic trees were constructed u […]


Genome wide identification of sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) histone modification gene families and their expression analysis during the fruit development and fruit blue mold infection process

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 4525380
PMID: 26300904
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2015.00607

Computational Identification and Functional Predictions of Long Noncoding RNA in Zea mays

PLoS One
PMCID: 3420876
PMID: 22916204
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0043047

[…] dentify the most inclusive set of noncoding RNAs.To validate the Python pipeline and compare it with CPC, a set of 199 lncRNAs from and the set of 248 protein coding transcripts from ChromDB were run through each method of noncoding RNA detection. The Python pipeline identified 121 of 199 lncRNAs as noncoding, equivalent to an accuracy of 61 percent. The Coding Potential Calculato […]
