Strong spurious transcription likely contributes to DNA insert bias in typical metagenomic clone libraries

PMCID: 4459075
PMID: 26056565
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-015-0086-5

[…] ng that 16S rRNA gene content tracks well with genomic content in large-insert cosmid libraries. Both of our approaches provided similar results, and both were in agreement with percent GC, Taxy, and Taxy-Pro results, all of which provide compelling evidence that cosmid library biases are not due to fragmentation of AT-rich sequences during the cloning process. […]


Exploring Neighborhoods in the Metagenome Universe

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 4139848
PMID: 25026170
DOI: 10.3390/ijms150712364

[…] an 400 different Pfam families from our database. As an exception, we did not apply this procedure to virus-enriched metagenomes, i.e., datasets with a high fraction of viral DNA (>20% as measured by Taxy-Pro). The total number of datasets according to habitat categories can be found in . A CSV-formatted list containing the metagenome identifiers and habitat labels as used in our evaluation can be […]
