[…] as potential t6ss clusters. the component genes of all clusters were then manually checked in detail. furthermore, we compared the t6ss clusters obtained here with those detected by using txsscan macsyfinder program (; ), to carry out the optimized validation for potential functional systems. in final, the clusters that either were detected by both programs or contained at least 10 core […]

[…] iv pili), we built hmm profiles (as above except alignments were manually curated for amo and ure), based on the corresponding arcog families and integrated the respective sets of profiles in the macsyfinder framework that enables the detection of sets of co-localized genes in the genome (parameters inter_gene_max_space = 10, min_nb_mandatory_genes = 1 for amo and ure, inter_gene_max_space = […]

[…] eukaryotes where nhej repair of cas9-mediated breaks can compete with homology-directed repair and limit the efficiency of precise editing., nhej and type ii crispr-cas systems were detected using macsyfinder (default parameters). the published models were used for the detection of type ii crispr-cas systems. to detect nhej, we retrieved protein profiles from tigrfam: ku (pf02735) and ligd […]

[…] removed. integrons were identified using integronfinder v.1.4 with the –local_max option. integrative conjugative elements (ices) and integrative mobilizable elements (imes) were identified using macsyfinder v.1.0.2 with txsscan profiles. elements with a full conjugative apparatus were classed as ice, the others as ime (see ref. for criteria). integrases were identified using the pfam […]

[…] to compute kimura distance matrix, which was used as input for the neighbor-joining algorithm as implemented in the phylip package ()., to predict bacterial protein secretion systems, analysis with macsyfinder was performed using default features (unordered replicon, circular, all available systems, maximal e-value 1.0, maximal independent e-value 0.001, minimal profile coverage 0.5) ().
