Transcriptional analysis and histochemistry reveal that hypersensitive cell death and H2O2 have crucial roles in the resistance of tea plant (Camellia sinensis (L.) O. Kuntze) to anthracnose

PMCID: 5878829
PMID: 29619229
DOI: 10.1038/s41438-018-0025-2

[…] 5986354; and SRR5986341. A Venn diagram was constructed using software that is available online (http://bioinformatics.psb.ugent.be/webtools/Venn/). Gene Ontology (GO) term enrichment was analysed by Gene Ontology Enrichment Analysis Software Toolkit (GOEAST), and statistical enrichment was considered when P < 0.05. The Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) analysis was performed by the D […]


SKL1 Is Essential for Chloroplast Development in Arabidopsis

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5826214
PMID: 29515603
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00179
call_split See protocol

[…] e according to the |log2 (fold-change)|≥ 1 with the p-value < 0.05. The expression level for each unigene was calculated and normalized using the RPKM (reads per kb per million reads; ). In addition, Gene Ontology Enrichment Analysis Software Toolkit were used to multi-GO enrichment analyses of DEGs (). […]


Streptomyces coelicolor strains lacking polyprenol phosphate mannose synthase and protein O mannosyl transferase are hyper susceptible to multiple antibiotics

PMCID: 5882110
PMID: 29458553
DOI: 10.1099/mic.0.000605

[…] using BWA MEM (http://bio-bwa.sourceforge.net). Normalized counts and differential gene expression analysis were performed with DESeq2 in RIBioconductor []. Gene ontology analysis was performed using GOEAST [], and read counts were visualized using the Integrated Genomics Viewer []. RNA sequencing data is available at the GEO database accession number GSE107982. […]


Transcriptomic analysis reveals unique molecular factors for lipid hydrolysis, secondary cell walls and oxidative protection associated with thermotolerance in perennial grass

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5778672
PMID: 29357827
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4437-z

[…] s of blastx, blastp, HMMER, signalP, and TMHMM.Gene ontology (GO) term classification was performed by CateGOrizer [], using “GO_slim2” method. The GO enrichment analysis for DEGs was performed using GOEAST [], by first implementing Customized Result Analysis for up- and down-regulated DEGs in each species, respectively, and then comparing between two species in Multi-GOEAST, using default paramet […]


Barley SIX ROWED SPIKE3 encodes a putative Jumonji C type H3K9me2/me3 demethylase that represses lateral spikelet fertility

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5643332
PMID: 29038434
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-00940-7

[…] t test was used to calculate the P values, these were further adjusted to account for multiple testing (). Gene Ontology enrichment analysis on DE genes () identified over-represented GO terms using GOEAST. Selected transcripts were validated by qRT-PCR in independent experiments (Supplementary Fig.  and ).For qRT-PCR, RNA was extracted from developing inflorescences (n = 3, 24 plants per rep, ac […]


Cerium oxide nanoparticles inhibit differentiation of neural stem cells

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5570910
PMID: 28839176
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-09430-8

[…] hows the directionality of the changes in gene expression, in relation to the control. Gene Ontology (GO) enrichment analysis of the differentially expressed genes was performed using the online tool GOEast using a Fischer exact test and Alexa’s improved weighted scoring algorithm. The GO enrichment was performed for all the differentially expressed genes together and separately for the up- and do […]
