Metagenomic analysis reveals that modern microbialites and polar microbial mats have similar taxonomic and functional potential

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 4585152
PMID: 26441900
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2015.00966

[…] ively, assembled into contigs, indicating that both environments had complex microbial communities. FragGeneScan was used to predict and translate contig open reading frames (ORFs) (Rho et al., ) and ProPas (Wu and Zhu, ) was used to calculate predicted protein isoelectric points (pI).The assemblies were annotated using Metagenomic Rapid Annotations using Subsystems Technology (MG-RAST) (Meyer et […]


PHYSICO: An UNIX based Standalone Procedure for Computation of Individual and Group Properties of Protein Sequences

PMCID: 3937585
PMID: 24616564
DOI: 10.6026/97320630010105

[…] this is that one has to input one sequence at a time for computation of above properties, which is time consuming and limited by the speed of internet. Further, managing outputs may create confusion. Propas [] a standalone software, which can perform calculation on a number of sequences but only of three kinds of physicochemical properties. Thus, available software tools suffer from one or the oth […]


Comparative genomic analysis of six bacteria belonging to the genus Novosphingobium: insights into marine adaptation, cell cell signaling and bioremediation

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3704786
PMID: 23809012
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-14-431

[…] e protein sequences from each genome served as the queries for the BLAST analysis. Visualization of the gene arrangement was done using Gview []. The calculation of the protein pI was performed using ProPAS []. […]


Synthesis of Very Long Chain Fatty Acids in the Epidermis Controls Plant Organ Growth by Restricting Cell Proliferation

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 3621670
PMID: 23585732
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1001531

[…] rib zone (RZ)—a region below the self-renewing stem cell pool that contributes to the meristem pith—and that the vasculature was disorganized ().We monitored the expression pattern of PAS2 using the ProPAS2:β-glucuronidase (GUS) reporter gene (a fusion of the ∼2.0-kb PAS2 promoter and the GUS gene). GUS signal was detected in mature embryos, cotyledons and true leaves of seedlings, the infloresce […]
