In silico methods for linking genes and secondary metabolites: The way forward

PMCID: 5640692
PMID: 29062931
DOI: 10.1016/j.synbio.2016.03.001

[…] ch, for deriving prediction rules based on experimentally characterized PKS and NRPS gene clusters. The tools like NRPS-PKS, SBSPKS, ASMPKS/MAPSI, ClustScan, NP.Searcher, NRPSpredictor, PKS/NRPS and PKMiner permit semi-automatic identification and annotation of PKS, NRPS or PKS-NRPS hybrid gene clusters. In addition to annotating the domains of multi-domain PKS and NRPS, most of these tools also […]


Actinomycetes from the South China Sea sponges: isolation, diversity, and potential for aromatic polyketides discovery

[…] es were translated to amino acid sequences using the web tool ORF Finder in NCBI ( The deduced amino acid sequences were compared with the KSα sequences in PKMiner database ( using the type II PKS domain classifiers (Kim and Yi, ). The top matches were derived from the KSα sequences associated with 42 experimentally c […]


Expanding our Understanding of Sequence Function Relationships of Type II Polyketide Biosynthetic Gene Clusters: Bioinformatics Guided Identification of Frankiamicin A from Frankia sp. EAN1pec

PLoS One
PMCID: 4383371
PMID: 25837682
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0121505

[…] available software packages are also unable to identify bacterial type II polyketide gene clusters, and none are able to predict which structural subclass a type II polyketide gene cluster produces. PKMiner, a database of 40 unstudied type II polyketide gene clusters from sequenced bacterial genomes, which includes structural subclass predictions, was recently reported []. However, the PKMiner da […]
