Comparative genomic analysis of Acinetobacter spp. plasmids originating from clinical settings and environmental habitats

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5958079
PMID: 29773850
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-26180-3
call_split See protocol

[…] s obtained after ultracentrifugation were separately sequenced using MiSeq Illumina technology at the Center for Biotechnology (CeBiTec) in Bielefeld, Germany. The reads obtained were assembled using GS de novo Assembler software (gs Assembler, version 2.8, Roche). Plasmid finishing was accomplished using the CONSED software package. Complete closed replicons were automatically annotated by the ge […]


Complete Genome Sequences of Bacillus Phages Janet and OTooleKemple52

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5946042
PMID: 29748396
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00083-18

[…] icroscopy and genome analysis support a Myoviridae morphology for both phages.Phage genomic DNA was sequenced by the Pittsburgh Bacteriophage Institute using Illumina sequencing. The assembly program Newbler was used to produce a single contig from 50,000 reads, resulting in ∼100-fold depth of coverage. Gene annotation was completed using DNA Master (see […]


Complete and Annotated Genome Sequence of the Sourdough Lactic Acid Bacterium Lactobacillus fermentum IMDO 130101

[…] kit. Sequencing was performed by the VIB Nucleomics Core Facility (Leuven, Belgium) using an 8-kb paired-end library and 454 pyrosequencing, as described previously (). Reads were assembled using the GS De Novo Assembler v2.7 with default parameters, followed by gap closure with PCR and Sanger sequencing of the resulting amplicons (VIB Genetic Service Facility, Antwerp, Belgium) based on primers d […]


Draft Genome Sequence of a “Candidatus Brocadia” Bacterium Enriched from Activated Sludge Collected in a Tropical Climate

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5946052
PMID: 29748410
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00406-18

[…] yzed these data using RiboTagger () and observed ∼70% relative abundance for genus “Candidatus Brocadia” (V4 ribotag annotated against SILVA release 119) ().We constructed a metagenome assembly using Newbler v 2.9 (454 Life Sciences) and employed the CONCOCT program to cluster these contigs into 27 putative genome bins (). The most abundant bin contained 168 contigs (length, 1,527 to 114,900 bp; m […]


Genome Sequence of the Symbiotic Type Strain Mesorhizobium helmanticense CSLC115N Isolated from Lotus corniculatus Nodules

[…] in-house adapted protocol of the NEB prep kit.In total, 7,816,693 sequence reads were obtained, yielding a total of 1,153,487,657 bp of sequence information. The Illumina reads were assembled by the GS de novo assembler software (gsAssembler, version 2.8, Roche) with the final outcome of 145 large contigs (>200 bp). The average contig size was 47,445 bp, with the largest being 379,735 bp. The est […]

[…] ding Q < 15 were delited in Trimmomatic version 0.33 []. Reids with an average quality of Q < 20, as well as reids less than 75 nucleotides long were removed. The genome was assembled in the software Newbler v 3.0 (Roche). Evaluation of the quality of genome assembly was performed using the Quast 3.0 program [], the genomic sequence of B. melitensis 16 M strain (GeneBank: NC003317, NC003318) was u […]
