Identification and pathogenomic analysis of an Escherichia coli strain producing a novel Shiga toxin 2 subtype

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5928088
PMID: 29712985

[…] cBio) sequencing platform. The data were assembled to generate one circular genome without gaps by using SMRT Analysis 2.3.0. The protein-coding sequences (CDSs), tRNAs and rRNAs were predicted using GeneMarkS. The prophages were predicated by the PHAge Search Tool (PHAST). The virulence factors were predicted through the BLAST tool of NCBI and by using the virulence factor database (VFDB; http:// […]


Comparative mitochondrial genomics of cryptophyte algae: gene shuffling and dynamic mobile genetic elements

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5910586
PMID: 29678149
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4626-9

[…] d.Protein coding genes as well as rRNA and tRNA genes were compiled from all previously sequenced cryptophyte mitochondrial genomes. Preliminary annotation of protein coding genes was performed using GeneMarkS ( The final annotation file was checked in Geneious Pro 10.2.2 ( using the ORFfinder with genetic code 4 (Protozoan Mitocho […]


Deciphering viral presences: two novel partial giant viruses detected in marine metagenome and in a mine drainage metagenome

[…] 000000.1).Then, this marine metagenome for which the annotation was performed by automatic pipeline, was further investigated. Amongst 111 contigs, all genes and proteins were predicted de novo using GenemarkS [], with a blastp analysis of the 1947 predicted proteins followed by GC% assignment of putative viral contigs (Additional files  and ). Indeed, we used an e-value cut-off at 10− 2 and our r […]


Genome Wide Analysis of Mycoplasma bovirhinis GS01 Reveals Potential Virulence Factors and Phylogenetic Relationships

PMCID: 5940136

[…] as generated. The depth of coverage distribution map for genome assembly is shown in Figure S2 in File S1.The genome component prediction was conducted as follows: gene prediction was conducted using GeneMarkS v4.17 () with default parameters. Transfer RNAs (tRNAs) were identified using tRNAscan-SE v1.3.1 () with default parameters. Ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) were detected using RNAmmer v1.2 () with d […]

[…] chical Genome Assembly Process (HGAP) version 2 algorithm (), yielding a single contig. Over 91,000 subreads, with a mean subread length of 8,900 bp, went into the assembly of the chloroplast genome. GeneMarkS version 4.17 () was used to generate gene predictions ab initio. Gene annotations were generated through the Synthetic Genomics, Inc. (La Jolla, CA, USA) proprietary Archetype annotation pip […]
