PMID: 28746191
DOI: 10.1097/MD.0000000000007490

[…] structure-based threading server phyre[] to generate the cngb3 model, taking the eag1 crystal structure (pdb id: 5k7l chain a) as a template. all sequence similarity searches were carried out in the mpi bioinformatics toolkit using hhpred[] with default settings. hhpred searches for template were performed against a database comprising pdb70 (protein databank structures, as available on january […]

PMID: 27695441
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2016.01431

[…] an abi 377 automated sequencer. chimeric sequences of 16s rrna gene sequences were excluded by bellerophon (). valid sequences with more than 97% similarity were classified through the blastclust of mpi bioinformatics toolkit () to arrive operational taxonomic unit (otu). functional genes were translated through expasy translation tool. sequences were compared to the genbank nucleotide sequence […]

[…] megabat sequence (ncbi kf796623.1) is from yang et al. (). individual accession numbers for the reconstruction of primate l1orf1p sequences are listed in . pcoils () as integrated in the mpi bioinformatics toolkit () and iupred () were used for assigning coiled coil propensity and the probability of disorder, respectively., the dna sequences encoding purified fragments of the human […]
