[…] 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 […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] of bacteria and 519 essential genes of archaeon from the deg database, the proportions of essential genes in and out of gis can be studied, respectively. the statistical result is displayed in . islandpath-domb, which is defined as a more strict and more precise method, is based on sequence composition method, both dinucleotide bias and the presence of one or more mobility genes in the genes […]
