[…] plate consists of an od reading for each well, recorded at 15 min intervals over the 48 h incubation period. the data output for the control and ultrasound treated l. sakei cells were analysed using ductape software []. negative controls (wells containing the inoculated omnilog™ growth medium, but without any substrate for each pm plate was used to normalise differences in inoculums and redox […]

[…] different statistical methods were used to analyze the data: the biolog phenotype microarraytm analysis software; the opm and pipeline packages based on r language, as described previously [–]; the ductape suite []; and a two-way anova model using data normalized to positive control scores, as implemented in sas® system's proc genmod procedure. the results of these analyses were in general […]

[…] plates (biolog) coated with different nutrients and chemical substrates. growth of white and opaque cells was monitored at 25°c and 37°c for a period of 24 to 48 h. growth data were analyzed using ductape, which weighs cell fitness by combining multiple growth parameters (length of the lag phase, slope of the growth curve, average height of the curve, maximum cell respiration, and area […]

[…] type, and the lack of growth in wells with l-histidine or d-glucosamine may simply reflect cobalt chelation., in addition to model refinement, integrating the mutant phenotype data with igd1575, the ductape software, the s. meliloti genome annotation and an abc transporter induction study allowed for the prediction of novel carbon catabolic loci. one example compound is the monosaccharide […]

[…] of r. palustris (data not shown). exclusive reactions were then mapped on kegg with respect to other r. palustris strains sequenced so far (bisa53, bisb18, bisb5, cga009, haa2, tie1) by using ductape v 0.17.2 software []. data obtained are reported in table . the proteome size ranged between 4392 and 5242 protein coding genes, corresponding respectively to strains bisb5 and tie1.
