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

PMCID: 5940136
PMID: 29602809
DOI: 10.1534/g3.118.200018

[…] predicted by the ncbi prokaryotic genome annotation pipeline on the genbank database. genomic islands, insertion sequences, interspersed repetitive sequences, and tandem repeats were predicted with islandpath-diomb program (), isfinder (, repeatmasker v4.0.5 (), and trf v4.0.7b () with default parameters, respectively., functional annotations were conducted by blastp […]


Role of the DNA Mismatch Repair Gene MutS4 in Driving the Evolution of Mycobacterium yongonense Type I via Homologous Recombination

PMCID: 5742357
PMID: 29326683
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02578

[…] webserver based program, islandviewer 4 (; ) was used to identify and visualize the putative genomic islands in the genome of m. yongonense dsm 45126t with three prediction methods: islandpick (), islandpath () and sigi-hmm (). among the selected putative regions, orfs with high sequence similarities to other genus in the genome of m. yongonense dms 45126t (m. yongonense type i) were selected […]


Complete Genome Sequence of Mycoplasma capricolum subsp. capripneumoniae Strain zly1309F, Isolated from Endangered Tibetan Antelope

PMCID: 5522923
PMID: 28729256
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00496-17
call_split See protocol

[…] is 85.68% with an average gene length of 721 bp. there are 49 interspersed nuclear elements and 111 tandem repeats, including 1 microsatellite dna and 100 minisatellite dnas in the genome. the islandpath-diomb () program was used to predict the genomics islands, phast () was for the prophage prediction, and crisprfinder () for clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat […]


Isolation and Characterization of NDM Positive Escherichia coli from Municipal Wastewater in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

PMCID: 4997845
PMID: 27324770
DOI: 10.1128/AAC.00236-16

[…] server () using as input the annotation generated by rast. briefly, islandviewer uses two algorithms to predict genomic islands; both of them are based on sequence composition methods (sigi-hmm and islandpath/dimob). sigi-hmm incorporates synonymous codon usage as the statistical feature. different species have different preferences for synonymous codon usage; the frequencies at which codons […]


Genome Sequence of Enterococcus pernyi, a Pathogenic Bacterium for the Chinese Oak Silkworm, Antheraea pernyi

PMCID: 4888996
PMID: 27198035
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.01764-15
call_split See protocol

[…] ncbinr, cog, go, kegg, swiss-prot, and trembl. trnascan (), rnammer (), and rfam () were used to predict trnas, rrnas, and small rnas, respectively. gene islands and prophages were predicted using islandpath-diomb () and phast software ()., the genome size of e. pernyi is 3.09 mb with a g+c content of 38.35%. a total of 626 mb of clean data were generated, reaching a genome coverage depth […]


Computational methods for predicting genomic islands in microbial genomes

PMCID: 4887561
PMID: 27293536
DOI: 10.1016/j.csbj.2016.05.001

[…] analysis. both methods use a sliding window to scan the genome, and sequences or genes inside each window are used for computation., other methods use only a single discrimination criterion, such as islandpath-dinuc , and sigi-hmm . islandpath-dinuc uses a single-threshold method to predict gis as multiple consecutive genes with only dinucleotide bias. sigi-hmm predicts gis and putative donor […]
