[…] as predicted using the Multiple Expectation Maximization for Motif Elicitation (MEME)/Motif Alignment and Search Tool (MAST) system (http://meme-suite.org/) (Bailey et al., ) and visualized using the TBtools (version 0.4999) (https://github.com/CJ-Chen/TBtools). […]


The Fusarium graminearum Histone Acetyltransferases Are Important for Morphogenesis, DON Biosynthesis, and Pathogenicity

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5932188
PMID: 29755419
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00654
call_split See protocol

[…] Durbin, ). Identification of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) from RNA-seq data was conducted by using cufflinks (Trapnell et al., ). Detection of genes differentially enriched was analyzed with TBtools (https://github.com/CJ-Chen/TBtools). Primary metabolism-associated genes were download from The Fungal and Oomycete Genomics Resource Database (http://fungidb.org/) with GO term “0044238, pri […]


Genome Wide Identification and Expression Analysis of the Cation Diffusion Facilitator Gene Family in Turnip Under Diverse Metal Ion Stresses

Front Genet
PMCID: 5893799
PMID: 29670641
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00103

[…] Pfam tool and the MEME program were used to search for conserved domains and motifs in the BrrMTP protein sequences, respectively (; ); subsequently, the domain and motif diagrams were drawn with the TBtools software. The putative transmembrane regions in proteins were predicted by using the TMHMM Server V. 2.0. The physicochemical parameters of the proteins, including molecular weight (MW), theor […]


Genome Wide Identification of Cyclic Nucleotide Gated Ion Channel Gene Family in Wheat and Functional Analyses of TaCNGC14 and TaCNGC16

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5786745
PMID: 29403523
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00018

[…] ny number of non-overlapping occurrences of each motif, number of different motifs as 20, range of motif width as 6 to 100. All of the functions of those motifs were analyzed by InterPro and drawn by TBtools software, and the position of the annotated motifs were displayed by the R package “ggplot2”. The structures of TaCNGC genes were exhibited using the Gene Structure Display Server (GSDS). GFF3 […]


A Genomic Survey of SCPP Family Genes in Fishes Provides Novel Insights into the Evolution of Fish Scales

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 5713400
PMID: 29144443
DOI: 10.3390/ijms18112432

[…] By mapping the collected sequences onto their corresponding genomes, the genomic location of SPARCL1 and SCPP genes were determined, which was implemented in TBtools (https://github.com /CJ-Chen/TBtools). Pairwise alignment of SPARCL1, SPP1, SCPP1, ODAM, fa93e10, SCPP5, SCPP6, SCPP7, and SCPP9 between extracted species and zebrafish was also performed in E […]


Transcriptomic and Hormonal Analyses Reveal that YUC Mediated Auxin Biogenesis Is Involved in Shoot Regeneration from Rhizome in Cymbidium

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5664085
PMID: 29163591
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01866

[…] ified using edgeR software () with a false discovery rate (FDR) threshold of ≤0.001 and an absolute value of log2ratio ≥ 1. Representative subsets were obtained using an Interactive Venn Grapher from TBtools software, and GO and KEGG enrichment analyses of these subsets were performed by TBtools software using the hyper-geometric test (). REVIGO was applied to visualize the GO enrichment results b […]
