NGS Preprocessing and Quality Control: How-To with OmicsBox

Functional genomics attempts to describe the functions of genes and proteins by making use of data derived from genomic and transcriptomic experiments. Some bioinformatics tools, like OmicsBox, offers biologists to get from raw NGS data through all steps up to the generation of biological insights for a species without any previous genome resources. The bioinformatic process to perform a de

Gene expression profiling in fresh-water colonial green alga Volvox carteri

Blast2GO Supported Project. Researchers: Mrs.Soulmaz Ekhtari Teachers: Dr. Jafar Razeghi, Dr. Karim Hasanpur, and Dr. Arash Kianianmomeni Background and Project Overview: The evolutionary origin of some multicellular organisms has not yet been completely studied. A clear characteristic of complex multicellular organisms is germ-soma differentiation. The monophyletic group of volvocine contains multiple algae species ranging from unicellular species such as Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

Sarocladium oryzae

De novo genome assembly and annotation of sheath rot fungus Sarocladium oryzae with Blast2GO

This project reproduces a study carried out by Hittalmani S. et al. in 2016 about the S. oryzae fungus which causes sheath rot of rice. We used Blast2GO for the main analysis steps like the structural and functional annotation and analysis. (Original research paper: https://doi.org/10.1186/s12864-016-2599-0) 1.  Introduction Sheath rot disease caused by S. oryzae is an emerging threat to rice

Reanalyzing the A. galli transcriptomic response to an anthelmintic drug with Blast2GO

In this analysis, we will reproduce the study that was carried out by Michaela M. Martis et al. in 2017 (doi: http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0185182) with Blast2GO. Introduction Ascaridia galli is an intestinal parasite which infects a wide range of domestic birds. It is especially important in European farms, where it parasites laying hens and cause some economic problems. The only available treatments are

Expression Estimation at Transcript-Level

The Transcript-level Quantification feature of Blast2GO allows quantifying the gene and isoform expression of RNA-seq datasets. This video shows step-by-step how to create a count table of aligned sequencing reads and explains in detail the different concepts of expression quantification at transcript level. The application is based on the RSEM software package, which assigns reads to the isoforms they came from
