Single cell Sequencing of Thiomargarita Reveals Genomic Flexibility for Adaptation to Dynamic Redox Conditions

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 4914600
PMID: 27446006
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2016.00964

[…] nd transfer RNAs were identified with tRNAscan-SE (). The annotation was performed by a refined version of the GenDB v2.2 system () supplemented by the java-based comparative analysis and search tool JCoast version 1.7 (). Predicted ORFs were further verified via similarity searches against sequence databases NCBI-nr, Swiss-Prot, KEGG, COG, genomesDB (releases May 2013), and the protein family dat […]


Abundant toxin related genes in the genomes of beneficial symbionts from deep sea hydrothermal vent mussels

PMCID: 4612132
PMID: 26371554
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.07966.025

[…] we used Glimmer () for open reading frame (ORF) prediction. Ribosomal RNA genes were detected with RNAmmer () and tRNAs with tRNAscan-SE (). Annotation was done with GenDB 2.4 () and supplemented by JCoast 1.7 () to integrate the results of BLASTp (cut-off e-value of 10.0) against sequence databases NCBI-nr () SwissProt (), KEGG (), COG (), Pfam (), and InterPro (). TMHMM () was used for transmem […]


Functional characterization of polysaccharide utilization loci in the marine Bacteroidetes ‘Gramella forsetii' KT0803

PMCID: 4069401
PMID: 24522261
DOI: 10.1038/ismej.2014.4

[…] ned by means of the Geneious alignment software (). Details on protein functions were obtained from precomputed data available on the UniProt Knowledgebase (), the ENZYME database () and by using the JCoast software (). Information on the classification of CAZymes was derived from the CAZy database (). Subcellular localizations of all proteins were predicted according to ; the data are provided in […]


Microbial stratification in low pH oxic and suboxic macroscopic growths along an acid mine drainage

PMCID: 4030236
PMID: 24430486
DOI: 10.1038/ismej.2013.242

[…] KEGG subsystem-based JCoast annotations were used to gain a better understanding of how these population shifts could influence their metabolic potential (). To extend this analysis, we compared the results with the Richm […]


Genome Sequence of Serratia plymuthica Strain S13, an Endophyte with Germination and Plant Growth Promoting Activity from the Flower of Styrian Oil Pumpkin

Genome Announc
PMCID: 3738900
PMID: 23929484
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00594-13
call_split See protocol

[…] elding a final genome of 5,467,306 bp.Genes were identified with the software tool Prodigal 1/1/20 (). Functional annotation of the predicted genes was performed by use of the GenDB system 2.2 () and JCoast 1.7 (), which provided annotations with respect to clusters of orthologous groups (COG) (), Pfam (), and gene ontology (GO) (). The final genome includes 5.4 Mb, with a GC content of 56.19%. Th […]
