Analysis of Homologs of Cry toxin Receptor Related Proteins in the Midgut of a Non Bt Target, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål) (Hemiptera: Delphacidae)

PMCID: 5804751
PMID: 29415259
DOI: 10.1093/jisesa/iex102

[…] The OrfPredictor program () was used to obtain the open reading frame (ORF) of each unigene. Three ORF predictions were made for nucleotide sequence of each unigene, starting from the first, the second, a […]


Elucidating the Small Regulatory RNA Repertoire of the Sea Anemone Anemonia viridis Based on Whole Genome and Small RNA Sequencing

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5793845
PMID: 29385567
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evy003

[…] or to the small RNA alignment. Genomic setting of aligned putative miRNAs was inspected for overlapping regions corresponding to open reading frames (ORFs). Our scaffolds were searched for ORFs using OrfPredictor (http://bioinformatics.ysu.edu/tools/OrfPredictor.html; last accessed January 14, 2018) (). […]


Species specific genes under selection characterize the co evolution of slavemaker and host lifestyles

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 5715652
PMID: 29202686
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-017-1078-9

[…] workbench (Qiagen) and MIRA [] (Additional file ; for more details see []). Contigs were annotated using BlastX v.2.2.30 against the non-redundant arthropod database (November 2014). The online tool ORFpredictor 2.0.3 [] was used to predict open reading frames and amino acid sequences for all contigs. The predicted and translated amino acid sequences were used as input for OrthoMCL 2.0.9 [], to b […]


Highly Expressed Genes Are Preferentially Co Opted for C4 Photosynthesis

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 5850498
PMID: 29040657
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msx269
call_split See protocol

[…] CDSs were predicted from the assembled contigs and those retrieved from the literature using the standalone version of OrfPredictor (). Protein sequences of eight publicly available genomes (Arabidopsis thaliana, Brachypodium distachyon, Glycine max, Oryza sativa, Populus trichocarpa, S. italica, So. bicolor, and Z. m […]


A new method for sequencing the hypervariable Plasmodium falciparum gene var2csa from clinical samples

Malar J
PMCID: 5561619
PMID: 28818101
DOI: 10.1186/s12936-017-1976-8

[…] lysis. This 100× threshold was chosen because this was the minimum depth of coverage at which a perfect consensus sequence of the reference 3D7 was obtained. Then the amplicon sequences were fed into OrfPredictor [] to predict open reading frames, and corresponding amino acid sequences were generated. Amino acid sequences were used to annotate constituent domains using the VarDom 1.0 server []. Mu […]


First Complete Genome Sequence of Tobacco necrosis virus D Isolated from Soybean and from North America

Genome Announc

[…] f 812×. The overall genome sequence identities between TNV-DMB and the other TNV-D isolates were 83.4% (TNV-D), 93.3% (TNV-DH), and 83.2% (TNV-DP). Gene prediction using FgenesV (Softberry, Inc.) and OrfPredictor () identified the same six protein coding genes found in the other sequenced isolates in the following order: 22-kDa and 82-kDa genes encoding products required for RNA replication (p22 a […]
