Draft Genome Sequences of Four Clinical Legionella pneumophila Isolates from Ontario, Canada

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5897800
PMID: 29650583
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.00295-18

[…] Ades () to identify potential plasmids. We identified a plasmid contig in the LG57 strain. For confirmation, a BAM file including all paired-end reads and the SPAdes assembly graphs were submitted to Recycler (), confirming a 76,262-bp plasmid with high sequence similarity (97%) to a 31.9-kb fragment of the L. pneumophila subsp. pneumophila strain Lorraine plasmid pLELO (GenBank accession no. FQ95 […]


PlasmidTron: assembling the cause of phenotypes and genotypes from NGS data

Microb Genom
PMCID: 5885016
PMID: 29533742
DOI: 10.1099/mgen.0.000164

[…] that can combine short- and long-read data to produce fully circularized chromosomes and plasmids. It essentially fixes many of the deficiencies of SPAdes[] and fine-tunes it for assembling bacteria. Recycler [] takes an assembly graph and aligned reads to search for cycles in the graph that may correspond to plasmids. The method is only partially implemented, with substantial work required on the […]


Systematic Review: Occupational illness in the waste and recycling sector

PMCID: 5927023
PMID: 29165683
DOI: 10.1093/occmed/kqx153

[…] ung function in children and neonatal defects including stillbirths, premature births and low birth weights in China []. There was one case report from the USA of argyria in an X-ray and photographic recycler [].HSE’s Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) identified four cases of occupational asthma, two of Q fever, two of leptospirosis, one of extrinsic al […]


Genomic characterisation of clinical and environmental Pseudomonas putida group strains and determination of their role in the transfer of antimicrobial resistance genes to Pseudomonas aeruginosa

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5681832
PMID: 29126393
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4216-2

[…] s like genome coverage, read length and presence of repetitive sequences on the plasmid []. Due to these limitations, we applied three different bioinformatics tools (PlasmidFinder, plasmidSPAdes and recycler) to our dataset in order to augment plasmid detection [–]. Furthermore, plasmids predicted using these tools were only interpreted in combination with a manual search for annotated plasmid-sp […]


On the (im)possibility of reconstructing plasmids from whole genome short read sequencing data

Microb Genom
PMCID: 5695206
PMID: 29177087
DOI: 10.1099/mgen.0.000128

[…] ds for plasmid prediction, we excluded PLACNET from the comparison.More recently, two algorithms that predict plasmids on the basis of the information contained in the de Bruijn graph were published: Recycler [] and PlasmidSPAdes []. Recycler extracts the information from the de Bruijn graph searching for sub-graphs (cycles) corresponding to plasmids. Selection of the cycles is based on the follow […]


The Cyanobacteria Dominated Sponge Dactylospongia elegans in the South China Sea: Prokaryotic Community and Metagenomic Insights

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5524777
PMID: 28790992
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.01387

[…] symbionts, but no genes associated with carbon fixation were found, which supported its heterotrophic lifestyle. There is a possibility that the Chloroflexi symbiont is a complementary scavenger and recycler of carbon compounds originating from seawater and the sponge host in addition to Poribacteria (Kamke et al., ).Besides the above sponge symbionts, Acidobacteria was also highly abundant in th […]
