[…] contigs were compared to the genbank protein database using blastx. once the viral contigs were identified, a complete circular genome was constructed from the available contigs and reads using geneious (biomatters), which was also used to generate coverage analysis. the genomes of previously sequenced japanese and marbled eel viruses (14, 16) were retrieved from genbank using accession […]

[…] fourier transform ( the most highly related viruses are summarized in technical appendix 1 table 2. we calculated sequence identity matrices in geneious ( (technical appendix 1 figure 1) and studied phylogenetic relatedness to h5n8 virus isolated in eurasia and in egypt by using iqtree ( […]

[…] terminator v1.1 cycle sequncing kit (supplier: applied biosystems) at a capillary sequencer (3130x genetic analyser, applied biosystems) as previously described41. sequence adjustment were done with geneious software suite (v. 10.0.9; biomatters, auckland, new zealand) to generate consensus sequences. alignments were done using mafft (vs7.308)42, alignments were trimmed and realigned (fft-ns-i x […]

[…] (table 1). for each strain, the trimmed source-reads were used in the clc workbench de novo assembly tool to generate a single, contiguous contig. when compared with the reference genome in the geneious suite (data not shown), the linear contigs of the three initial assemblies started from different base positions due to randomly-oriented assembling processes. c. cayetanensis mitochondrial […]

[…] shown to neither affect pip activity nor the ability to interact in xenopus oocytes or plant cells (fetter et al., 2004; zelazny et al., 2007; bienert et al., 2012, 2014)., clustalw (integrated in geneious pro v6.1) was used to build multiple sequence alignments for pip protein sequences. the bayesian phylogenetic analyses were done by using mrbayes version 3.2. to align the amino acids, […]

Geneious is a friendly tools, specially for who never work with any genetic analysis. The software have an intuitive graphic interface and you can do a simple analyze like gene alignment and a modern analysis like a de novo alignment. Also, the software are interconnected with NCBI and you can use BLASTn (for example) without exit the software.
