Venomics Accelerated Cone Snail Venom Peptide Discovery

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 5877649
PMID: 29522462
DOI: 10.3390/ijms19030788

[…] tegration of these omics approaches to study venoms was termed “venomics” []. Since its implementation, cone snail venom research has advanced exponentially with the support of specialized databases (conoserver) [,] and automated (conosorter, conodictor) [,] and semi-automated analysis pipelines [] and knowledge bases. Using this integrative technology, full repertoires of venoms were revealed fro […]


Divergence of the Venom Exogene Repertoire in Two Sister Species of Turriconus

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5604253
PMID: 28922871
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evx157

[…] raphs was 31, sequence library type was set to reverse forward, minimum kmer coverage was 10, and the minimum glue was 10. Transcriptome assemblies were annotated using NCBI-BLASTX against a combined ConoServer () and UniProtKB database (release April 2015). Recently published conotoxin sequences that were not yet uploaded into Uniprot at the time of analysis (; , ; ) were also added to our in-hou […]


The Venom Repertoire of Conus gloriamaris (Chemnitz, 1777), the Glory of the Sea

Mar Drugs
PMCID: 5450551
PMID: 28531118

[…] 1 and a minimum k-mer coverage of 10. Assembled transcripts were annotated using a blastx [] search (E-value setting of 1e-3) against a combined database derived from UniProt (downloaded April 2015), Conoserver [], and an in-house conotoxin library. Transcripts per million transcripts (TPM) counts were generated using the Trinity RSEM [] plugin (align_and_estimate_abundance) and expression data we […]


High throughput identification of novel conotoxins from the Chinese tubular cone snail (Conus betulinus) by multi transcriptome sequencing

PMCID: 4832519
PMID: 27087938
DOI: 10.1186/s13742-016-0122-9

[…] The putative conopeptide sequences were predicted by BLASTX search and HMMER analysis [] (Additional files and ) against a local reference database of known conopeptides from the ConoServer databases [], and then examined manually using the ConoPrec tool []. After removal of the transcripts with duplication or truncated mature region sequences, we obtained totals of 46, 123, 9 […]


Bioinformatics Aided Venomics

PMCID: 4488696
PMID: 26110505
DOI: 10.3390/toxins7062159

[…] .Tox-Prot ( [] is the animal toxin annotation program of UniProtKB and aims to systematically annotate animal venom peptides []. Some of the annotations found in ConoServer and ArachnoServer have been transferred by Tox-Prot into UniProtKB, and links between the databases have been created. There are fewer annotated entries in UniProtKB concerning cone snail t […]


Molecular Diversity and Gene Evolution of the Venom Arsenal of Terebridae Predatory Marine Snails

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 4494067
PMID: 26025559
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evv104

[…] s developed and used to analyze the Tr. anilis and Te. subulata transcriptome assemblies. Pepticomb is largely based on source code kindly provided by the developers of the conoprec tool found on the Conoserver website (; , ). In stepwise fashion, Pepticomb examines a set of contigs for the presence of a signal sequence, looks for a proregion that terminates in a basic residue cl […]
