Gepard citations


Phages infecting Faecalibacterium prausnitzii belong to novel viral genera that help to decipher intestinal viromes

PMCID: 5883640
PMID: 29615108
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-018-0452-1

[…] n of the NCBI by BLASTn, with the discontinuous megaBLAST default parameters. Sequences producing alignments covering more than 5% of the query were retained. Whole genome dotplots were realized with Gepard [], using a length of 11 nt for minimal exact matches. CRISPR spacers were searched for with CRISPRDetect [], using default parameters. […]


Sequencing and Analysis of Strobilanthes cusia (Nees) Kuntze Chloroplast Genome Revealed the Rare Simultaneous Contraction and Expansion of the Inverted Repeat Region in Angiosperm

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5861152
PMID: 29593773
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00324

[…] erall sequence similarity to the reads and was used as a reference for the downstream genome assembly.AbySS (v1.5.2) () and CLC Genomics Workbench (v7) was used for the de novo genome assembly. Using Gepard (), we identified 7 contigs from the assembly of contigs of AbySS and CLC Genomics Workbench, respectively, that nearly spanned the entire cp genome. All the 14 contigs were assembled using Seq […]


Complete Genome Sequence of Escherichia coli ML35

[…] milar to regions of the large contig. Combined with its low coverage, this suggests that the small contig is an assembly artifact; therefore, we discarded it. To circularize the large contig, we used Gepard () to visualize overlap between the ends of the contig and BLAST () and EMBOSS extractseq () to specify coordinates and trim overlap, thereby generating a closed 4,918,091-bp contig.To polish t […]


Complete Genome Sequence of Pseudomonas sp. Strain NC02, Isolated from Soil

[…] bly Process version 3 (HGAP3) (), with an estimated genome size of 11 Mb and target coverage of 25×. This generated one 6,912,634-bp contig with 132× mean coverage. To circularize the contig, we used Gepard () to visualize the overlap between contig ends and BLAST () and EMBOSS extractseq () to specify coordinates and trim overlap, thereby generating a closed 6,890,354-bp contig.To polish the clos […]


Genomic Analysis of Hospital Plumbing Reveals Diverse Reservoir of Bacterial Plasmids Conferring Carbapenem Resistance

[…] 3 (PacBio SMRT Analysis version 2.3) or CANU (version 1.3, 1.4, or 1.5) (). The resulting contigs were polished by using Quiver (SMRT Analysis version 2.3) and manually reviewed and finished by using Gepard (version 1.3) (). Base calling and finishing accuracy was assessed by using the Most Probable Genotype () software with Illumina MiSeq read alignments against the finished PacBio assembly. The […]


Multi omics Reveals the Lifestyle of the Acidophilic, Mineral Oxidizing Model Species Leptospirillum ferriphilumT

Appl Environ Microbiol
PMCID: 5772234
PMID: 29150517
DOI: 10.1128/AEM.02091-17

[…] sembly was conducted with HGAP3 at the sequencing facility, including quiver for consensus corrections. The large contig was circularized with Circlator () after inspection of dot plots produced with Gepard (). The −fixstart option was applied to set the dnaA gene as the first gene. Prokka v1.12-beta () was used for genome annotation, which included Prodigal v2.6.3 () for the prediction of protein […]
