A repetitive element of approximately 200 bp was cloned from harbour seal (Phoca vitulina concolour) genomic DNA. The sequence of the element revealed putative RNA polymerase III control boxes, a poly A tail and direct terminal repeats characteristic of SINEs. Sequence and secondary structural...
PCR-based methods for identification of two Eteobalea species (Lepidoptera: Cosmopterigidae) used as biocontrol agents of weedy Linaria species (Scrophulariaceae)Download
Two European species of the genus Eleobalea Hodges are being tested as classical biological control agents for toadflax (Linaria spp.) in Canada. Permits for the release of these species apply only to an Italian population of E. serratella Treitschke and a Serbian population of E. intermediella...
ReAS: Recovery of Ancestral Sequences for Transposable Elements from the Unassembled Reads of a Whole Genome ShotgunDownload
We describe an algorithm, ReAS, to recover ancestral sequences for transposable elements (TEs) from the unassembled reads of a whole genome shotgun. The main assumptions are that these TEs must exist at high copy numbers across the genome and must not be so old that they are no longer...
Rice is a major food staple for the world's population and serves as a model species in cereal genome research. The Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) has long been devoting itself to sequencing, information analysis and biological research of the rice and other crop genomes. In order to facilitate...
Background Insects constitute the vast majority of known species with their importance including biodiversity, agricultural, and human health concerns. It is likely that the successful adaptation of the Insecta clade depends on specific components in its proteome that give rise to specialized...
Structural variant detection by large-scale sequencing reveals new evolutionary evidence on breed divergence between Chinese and European pigsDownload
In this study, we performed a genome-wide SV detection among the genomes of thirteen pigs from diverse Chinese and European originated breeds by next genetation sequencing, and constrcuted a single-nucleotide resolution map involving 56,930 putative SVs. We firstly identified a SV hotspot...
Identifying nonspecific ligand binding in electrospray ionization mass spectrometry using the reporter molecule methodDownload
The application of the reporter molecule (Mrep) method for identifying nonspecific complexes in the ES-MS analysis of protein-ligand and DNA-ligand interactions in vitro is described. To test the reliability of the method, it was applied to the ES-MS analysis of protein-carbohydrate complexes...
The Silkworm Knowledgebase (SilkDB) is a web-based repository for the curation, integration and study of silkworm genetic and genomic data. With the recent accomplishment of a ~6X draft genome sequence of the domestic silkworm (Bombyx mori ), SilkDB provides an integrated representation of the...
The mitochondrial genome of the hexactinellid sponge Aphrocallistes vastus: Evidence for programmed translational frameshiftingDownload
Background: Mitochondrial genomes (mtDNA) of numerous sponges have been sequenced as part of an ongoing effort to resolve the class-level phylogeny of the Porifera, as well as to place the various lower metazoan groups on the animal-kingdom tree. Most recently, the partial mtDNA of two glass...
