The genome, transcriptome, and proteome of the nematode Steinernema carpocapsae: evolutionary signatures of a pathogenic lifestyle

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5120318
PMID: 27876851
DOI: 10.1038/srep37536

[…] ti) were assigned to OrthoMCL orthologous groups, and the presence or absence of groups was compared among the different species using ad hoc scripts from scriptome (http://archive.sysbio.harvard.edu/csb/resources/computational/scriptome/UNIX/). […]


Confidence Guided Local Structure Prediction with HHfrag

PLoS One
PMCID: 3797814
PMID: 24146881
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0076512

[…] The fragment filtering algorithm and the confidence-guided torsion angle predictor are implemented as an HHfrag extension in version 1.2 of the CSB open-source SDK . An HHfrag web server is available at http://toolkit.tuebingen.mpg.de/hhfrag. The standalone executable, source code and Python API are freely available for download at http://csb […]


β Propeller Blades as Ancestral Peptides in Protein Evolution

PLoS One
PMCID: 3797127
PMID: 24143202
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0077074

[…] ode to obtain an all-vs-all matrix of similarity p-values. These p-values were extracted from the result files and converted to a CLANS input file using the bio.io.hhpred and bio.io.clans modules of CSB, respectively . The cluster map was computed from the input file using the force-directed layouting method implemented in CLANS (attract and repulse value 10) at a p-value threshold of 1e-5 until […]


Description and Nomenclature of Neisseria meningitidis Capsule Locus

PMCID: 3647402
PMID: 23628376
DOI: 10.3201/eid1904.111799

[…] t is necessary to have nomenclature that identifies the serogroup simply and quickly. The polysialyltransferase genes belonging to serogroups B and C share >70% sequence identity and should be termed csb and csc, respectively. The equivalent gene in serogroups W and Y is also a sialyltransferase, but it also has a glycosyltransferase function and is distinct from the serogroups B and C genes. Thes […]
