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 ...
Free-Living Enterobacterium Pragia fontium 24613: Complete Genome Sequence and Metabolic Profiling
(SAGE Publishing, 2017-03-30)
Pragia fontium is one of the few species that belongs to the group of atypical hydrogen sulfide-producing enterobacteria. Unlike other members of this closely related group, P. fontium is not associated with any known host ...
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.
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 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 ...
Complete genome sequence of Pragia fontium 24613, an environmental bacterium from the family Enterobacteriaceae
The complete genome sequence of Pragia fontium 24613 was determined using PacBio RSII, Roche 454 and SOLiD sequencing. A total of 3,579 genes were predicted, including 3,338 protein-coding sequences and 146 pseudogenes. ...
Acidogenesis, solventogenesis, metabolic stress response and life cycle changes in Clostridium beijerinckii NRRL B-598 at the transcriptomic level
(Springer Nature, 2019-02-04)
Clostridium beijerinckii NRRL B-598 is a sporulating, butanol and hydrogen producing strain that utilizes carbohydrates by the acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentative pathway. The pathway consists of two metabolic phases, ...
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 ...
Bipartite Graphs for Visualization Analysis of Microbiome Data
(Libertas Academica, 2016-05-31)
Visualization analysis plays an important role in metagenomics research. Proper and clear visualization can help researchers get their first insights into data and by selecting different features, also revealing and ...
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 ...
