The Sequenced Angiosperm Genomes and Genome Databases

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5909171
PMID: 29706973
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00418

[…] ) hosts assembled and annotated genomes from 59 angiosperm species, as well as other green lineage species, such as algae, moss, liverworts, selaginella (Goodstein et al., ). In addition to BLAST and Gbrowse tools, Phytozome also provide Biomart which allow users to annotate plant gene families, to study the evolution of plant gene families, to display genes in the genomic context (Goodstein et al […]


RNA Seq analysis validates the use of culture derived Trypanosoma brucei and provides new markers for mammalian and insect life cycle stages

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5879877
PMID: 29606092
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4600-6
call_split See protocol

[…] allow a maximum of 2 mismatches per 28 bp seed (Galaxy version 1.1.2). Sequencing depth and mapping coverage are provided in Additional file . Mapping to the genome was used to visualise the data on Gbrowse; to estimate transcript abundance, reads were first mapped to coding sequences and unmapped reads were re-mapped to 3’ UTRs. Read counts for the annotated genes or 3’UTR were extracted using S […]


FungiDB: An Integrated Bioinformatic Resource for Fungi and Oomycetes

PMCID: 5872342
DOI: 10.3390/jof4010039

[…] . To send this run into a new history, check the box Send results to a new history (c). After the workflow has finished running, users can visualize the expression graphs (as BigWig files) in FungiDB GBrowse (). To import BigWig files into FungiDB GBrowse, click on the Display in FungiDB GBrowse link, which will become visible once a user clicks to expand the Bam to BigWig step in the workflow EuP […]


A functional SNP upstream of the ADRB2 gene is associated with COPD

PMCID: 5859892
PMID: 29588580
DOI: 10.2147/COPD.S151153

[…] nd it is interesting to know whether this variant is correlated with the expression of ADRB2 in lymphoblastoid cells. To address this issue, we utilized eQTL browser (, which collected published eQTL data of lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCL) from four HapMap populations to search for potential association. Interestingly, a significant association betwee […]


Uneven recombination rate and linkage disequilibrium across a reference SNP map for common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)

PLoS One
PMCID: 5844515
PMID: 29522524
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0189597

[…] ualized in the Legume Information System (“LIS”;, in several contexts. The TOG-based map is viewable using CMap v. 1.01 [] with markers placed onto the Phaseolus vulgaris v1.0 GBrowse genome viewer, at Underlying data files are at the LIS database: […]


Genome Wide Analysis Characterization and Evolution of SBP Genes in Fragaria vesca, Pyrus bretschneideri, Prunus persica and Prunus mume

Front Genet
PMCID: 5841269
PMID: 29552026
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00064

[…] es in fifteen tissues was shown by heat map representation (Figure ). To explore the expression diversity of SBP family genes in F. vesca, we analyzed RNA-seq transcriptomic dataset obtained from SGR GBrowse database to investigate the expression pattern of each SBP gene during different development process (anther, Pollen, embryo, ghost, cortex, ovule, seedling, pollen, style, pith, wall, and lea […]
