A thin ice layer segregates two distinct fungal communities in Antarctic brines from Tarn Flat (Northern Victoria Land)

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5919928
PMID: 29700429
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25079-3

[…] carded. Assembled reads were analyzed via Qiime v.1.8 software package. Sequences were checked for chimeras with the Chimera VSEARCH. Next, fungal sequences were taxonomically annotated using UNITE + INSDC dataset June 2017 release. Operational taxonomic units (OTUs) table was generated using demultiplexed sequences at 97% similarity and singletons were removed. All sequences have been submitted t […]


Phylogeography of hydrothermal vent stalked barnacles: a new species fills a gap in the Indian Ocean ‘dispersal corridor’ hypothesis

[…] (Biomatters Limited) and registered to DNA Data Bank of Japan, with accession numbers LC350007–LC350015.The sequences obtained were aligned with eolepadid sequences available in the databases of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration, using Clustal X included in MEGA v. 6.06 []. A total of 123 sequences from seven eolepadid taxa were used (4--45 individuals per taxa), with o […]


The efficacy of 16S ribosomal DNA sequencing in the diagnosis of bacteria from blood, bone and synovial fluid samples of children with musculoskeletal infections

PMCID: 5902756
PMID: 29707061
DOI: 10.1302/1863-2548.12.170049

[…] uencing results were analyzed with Geneious bioinformatics software (Biomatters, New Zealand) and compared with the National Center for Biotechnology Information world database for bacterial species (International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration).Standard laboratory procedures were performed in parallel for each sample and pathogen and served as the reference index in the present study. […]


A world without bacterial meningitis: how genomic epidemiology can inform vaccination strategy

PMCID: 5871810
PMID: 29636909
DOI: 10.12688/f1000research.13793.1

[…] l Isolate Genome Sequence Database (BIGSdb) platform (, which stores assembled and annotated genome data from the meningococcus and pneumococcus , . This supplements resources such as the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration, which is composed of the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the European Nucleotide Archive and the DNA Databank of Japan. Global […]


The impact of reconstructed soils following oil sands exploitation on aspen and its associated belowground microbiome

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5807544
PMID: 29426844
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-20783-6

[…] to the total number reads observed in the data set) greater than 0.01%. Ecological functions were attributed based on the metadata associated with the BLAST closest matches recovered in the UNITE and INSDC ( databases and by cross-referencing the literature (details provided in supplementary information and in Supplementary Tables  and ). […]


A new species of the genus Pseudocrangonyx (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Pseudocrangonyctidae) from South Korea

PMCID: 5904333
