Bioinformatics strategies for taxonomy independent binning and visualization of sequences in shotgun metagenomics
One of main steps in a study of microbial communities is resolving their composition, diversity and function. In the past, these issues were mostly addressed by the use of amplicon sequencing of a target gene because of ...
Seasonal changes in microbial community composition in river water studied using 454-pyrosequencing
The aims of this study were to determine the microbial community in five rivers in the proximity of a city in the Czech Republic using 454-pyrosequencing, as well as to assess seasonal variability over the course of 1 year ...
Draft Genome Sequence of Clostridium pasteurianum NRRL B-598, a Potential Butanol or Hydrogen Producer
We present a draft genome sequence of Clostridium pasteurianum NRRL B-598. This strain ferments saccharides by two-stage acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation, is oxygen tolerant, and has high hydrogen yields.
Progressive alignment of genomic signals by multiple dynamic time warping
This paper presents the utilization of progressive alignment principle for positional adjustment of a set of genomic signals with different lengths. The new method of multiple alignment of signals based on dynamic time ...
Dam and Dcm methylations prevent gene transfer into Clostridium pasteurianum NRRL B-598: development of methods for electrotransformation, conjugation, and sonoporation
(BioMed Central, 2016-01-20)
Butanol is currently one of the most discussed biofuels. Its use provides many benefits in comparison to bio-ethanol, but the price of its fermentative production is still high. Genetic improvements could help solve many ...
Characterization of Microbiota Composition and Presence of Selected Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Carriage Water of Ornamental Fish
(Public Library of Science, 2014-08-01)
International trade with ornamental fish is gradually recognized as an important source of a wide range of different antibiotic resistant bacteria. In this study we therefore characterized the prevalence of selected ...
Characterization of Egg Laying Hen and Broiler Fecal Microbiota in Poultry Farms in Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovenia
(Public Library of Science, 2014-10-16)
Poultry meat is the most common protein source of animal origin for humans. However, intensive breeding of animals in confined spaces has led to poultry colonisation by microbiota with a zoonotic potential or encoding ...
Characterization of antibiotic resistance gene abundance and microbiota composition in feces of organic and conventional pigs from four EU countries
One of the recent trends in animal production is the re-appearance of organic farming. The interest of wide public in organic farming is affected by interest in animal welfare and lower use of antibiotics in organic than ...
Succession and Replacement of Bacterial Populations in the Caecum of Egg Laying Hens over Their Whole Life
(Public Library of Science, 2014-12-12)
In this study we characterised the development of caecal microbiota in egg laying hens over their commercial production lifespan, from the day of hatching until 60 weeks of age. Using pyrosequencing of V3/V4 variable regions ...
Set of rules for genomic signal downsampling
Comparison and classification of organisms based on molecular data is an important task of computational biology, since at least parts of DNA sequences for many organisms are available. Unfortunately, methods for comparison ...
