Viral Diagnostics in Plants Using Next Generation Sequencing: Computational Analysis in Practice

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5662881
PMID: 29123534
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01770

[…] es not have to be uploaded to a remote site, but requires expertise in software installation and the Linux environment.The use of web based analytical environments such as Galaxy (Afgan et al., ) and Yabi (Hunter et al., ) appear to offer a solution, but their real advantage only comes if they are installed locally. Local installation of such environments allows them to be customized with the addi […]


An internet based bioinformatics toolkit for plant biosecurity diagnosis and surveillance of viruses and viroids

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5225587
PMID: 28077064
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1428-4

[…] We have implemented an automated viral surveillance and diagnosis toolkit using the Yabi web-based analytical environment that enables improved detection of viruses and viroids pathogens. We found that all single stranded RNA (+) viruses found in this study were assembled using exclu […]


Towards agile large scale predictive modelling in drug discovery with flow based programming design principles

J Cheminform
PMCID: 5123367
PMID: 27942268
DOI: 10.1186/s13321-016-0179-6

[…] for new workflows. In many WMS tools, complex workflows cannot be created without combining the workflow tool with shell scripts [], pointing to their limitations for complex use cases.Galaxy [–] and Yabi [] are GUI-centric tools or frameworks with a client/server architecture that require the installation of a server daemon and meta data to support automatic GUI generation. By their GUI-centric n […]


High diversity of picornaviruses in rats from different continents revealed by deep sequencing

PMCID: 5034103
PMID: 27530749
DOI: 10.1038/emi.2016.90

[…] rated using USEARCH (v6.2). Each sample file was then checked for chimeras in USEARCH using the UCHIME de novo method, which were removed along with singleton reads. The files were then imported into YABI, where a BLASTn search was carried out against the NCBI GenBank nucleotide database., BLAST files were downloaded and imported into the program MEtaGenome ANalyzer (MEGAN v4.70.4) for taxonomic […]


Integration and Visualization of Translational Medicine Data for Better Understanding of Human Diseases

PMCID: 4932659
PMID: 27441714
DOI: 10.1089/big.2015.0057

[…] works, Leipzig groups existing technologies according to their interaction mode into command-line/application programming interface (API) and workbench approaches. The first group includes Snakemake, Yabi, Chipster, or Mobyle and relies on textual workflow construction in a script-like format. Certain tools in this group, such as Chipster, enable Web-based collaborative development of workflows.Th […]


Combined DNA, toxicological and heavy metal analyses provides an auditing toolkit to improve pharmacovigilance of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)

[…] exact matches) for each sample was generated using USEARCH. These files were then analysed for chimeras in USEARH using the UCHIME de novo method and removed, along with singletons and imported into YABI where a BLASTn search was conducted against the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) GenBank NR database. The resultant BLAST files were then imported into the program MEtaGenome […]
