[…] underlying genome blast distance phylogeny has been recognized to be a digital dna–dna hybridization (ddh) replacement (meier-kolthoff et al., 2013). in this study, an updated and enhanced platform genome-to-genome distance calculator (ggdc) v2.11 with improved ddh-prediction models and a set of novel features such as confidence-interval estimation was employed to calculate the intergenomic […]

[…] perl scripts. protein homology was checked by blastp (camacho et al., 2009)., phylogenomic distances between genomes harboring the flagellar island and close relative genomes was calculated with the genome-to-genome distance calculator (ggdc) 2.1 web service (meier-kolthoff et al., 2013). nucleotide sequence from each of the 45 orfs from the flagellar island were retrieved […]

[…] (gbdp)-based dna-dna hybridization (ddh) prediction (6), the pair of b. pyogenes jcm 6294t and jcm 6292 genome sequences show a 100% ddh value calculated by the genome-to-genome distance calculator (ggdc) web server (ggdc 2.0 []). on the other hand, the pairs of jcm 10003 and b. pyogenes jcm 6294t or jcm 6292 show a 64.7% ddh value, which is considered […]
