Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5767323
PMID: 29375510
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02641

[…] Selected cyanobacterial ntcA sequences were retrieved from CYORF (http://cyano.genome.jp/), Cyanobase (http://genome.microbedb.jp/cyanobase/), Integrated Microbial Genomes (https://img.jgi.doe.gov) and NCBI (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/) databases.

Transcriptomic Responses in the Bloom Forming Cyanobacterium Microcystis Induced during Exposure to Zooplankton

Appl Environ Microbiol
PMCID: 5311399
PMID: 28003198
DOI: 10.1128/AEM.02832-16

[…] d clade-specific microbial marker genes. Differentially expressed genes were assigned functional categories based upon categories found in CyanoBase for the Microcystis NIES-843 genome (http://genome.microbedb.jp/cyanobase/GCA_000010625.1). Full differential expression results can be found in Table S1 to S6 in the supplemental material. Principal-component analysis (PCA) for functional category si […]

[…] ructed using 16S ribosomal RNA []. Multiple sequence alignment of 12 representative AARs was carried out using the Clustal X software [].The habitats of 128 cyanobacterial species were examined using MicrobeDB (http://microbedb.jp/), CyanoBase (http://genome.microbedb.jp/cyanobase/) [], and the Pasteur Culture collection of Cyanobacteria (PCC; http://cyanobacteria.web.pasteur.fr/). Sixty-nine and […]
