Production of the Plant Hormone Auxin by Salmonella and Its Role in the Interactions with Plants and Animals

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5770404
PMID: 29375530
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02668

[…] Synteny analysis was carried out using default parameters in the SyntTax web server (Oberto, ). Sequences were imported from GenBank. UV peak integration was conducted with proprietary Waters software, and analysis of mass spectral data was carried out using Thermo […]

Flipping chromosomes in deep sea archaea

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5495485
PMID: 28628615
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1006847

[…] Genomic sequences were compared and aligned by dotplot analysis using Gepard []. Conservation of gene order was assessed by synteny analysis using Absynte [] and SyntTax []. The original genome of Thermococcus 5–4 JCM31817 (GenBank accession CP021848) and the genomes of sub-cultured T. nautili 60G and 66G and T. sp. 5–4 36G and 66G were sequenced by Genoscope […]

PMID: 27185829
DOI: 10.1128/JB.00116-16
call_split See protocol

[…] high-frequency (>85%) changes are listed in Table S3 for the different strains. To determine the conservation of the gtlA gene among other Listeria species, a synteny analysis was performed using the SyntTax web server ( and all available sequenced Listeria genomes () […]
