Ancient DNA study reveals HLA susceptibility locus for leprosy in medieval Europeans

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5931558
PMID: 29717136
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03857-x

[…] and downstream SNPs located further than 100 bases away from a gene were ignored. The annotations were manually completed with information about transcript type and function available on the NCBI and Mycobrowser databases. The results were compiled into a table containing information for each SNP regarding its effect on the genes in the strains in which the SNP occurs (Supplementary Data ). In viv […]


HadD, a novel fatty acid synthase type II protein, is essential for alpha and epoxy mycolic acid biosynthesis and mycobacterial fitness

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5902629
PMID: 29662082
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24380-5

[…] Analyses of genome sequences were done via the SmegmalList ( and the NCBI ( web sites. Sequence alignments were performed using BLAST and Clustal Omega softwares,, with default paramet […]


Mycobacterial DNA binding protein 1 is critical for long term survival of Mycobacterium smegmatis and simultaneously coordinates cellular functions

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5533761
PMID: 28754952
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-06480-w

[…] The false discovery rate against the decoy database was <1%. Gene Ontology annotation including protein molecular function and biological processes were searched using the SmegmaList database ( and UniProt database ( […]


Rational engineering of a virulence gene from Mycobacterium tuberculosis facilitates proteomic analysis of a natural protein N terminus

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5021934
PMID: 27625110
DOI: 10.1038/srep33265

[…] to right). Peptide lengths were determined and used to create a heat map using the open source programming software, R. For analysis of the Esx-like proteins in , protein sequences were obtained from Mycobrowser and were analyzed in silico for digestion by trypsin with PeptideCutter (ExPASy). Protein graphics were generated using Microsoft Excel. […]


MycoBASE: expanding the functional annotation coverage of mycobacterial genomes

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4690229
PMID: 26704706
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2311-9

[…] attempt to fill this gap was made by GenoMycDB [], a collection of six mycobacterial genomes; however, this database has not been updated to include more genomes. TubercuList was later extended into MycoBrowser []. This website contains a comprehensive genomic and proteomic database for three additional mycobacterial species; although, it still lacks commonly studied NTM such as M. avium complex […]


Genome analysis of smooth tubercle bacilli provides insights into ancestry and pathoadaptation of the etiologic agent of tuberculosis

Nat Genet
PMCID: 3856870
PMID: 23291586
DOI: 10.1038/ng.2517

[…] risons were performed with the Microscope platform, Artemis and Artemis comparison tool (ACT). When applicable, annotations were transferred from those of M. tuberculosis orthologs in the TubercuList/Mycobrowser database, using BLAST matches of > 90% protein sequence identity, an alignable region of > 80% of the shortest protein length in pairwise comparisons and visual inspection of the gene synt […]
