BioBam Scholarship Supported Project – with OmicsBox. Researchers: Mr. Arun Arumugaperumal Mr. Sayan Paul and Miss Saranya Lathakumari, PhD students Dr. Sudhakar Sivasubramaniam Abstract The earthworm Eisenia fetida has a symbiotic bacteria named Verminephrobacter eiseniae in its nephridia. A new strain of V. eiseniae msu was found out and the genome of the bacteria was found hidden in the genome
De novo transcriptome assemblies are required to analyze RNA-seq data from a species for which there is no reference genome. Once the assembly is complete, researchers need to know how good it is or compare the quality of similar assemblies generated by different parameters. There are several ways to characterize the quality of transcriptome assemblies. A good metric of assembly
Most transcripts assembled from eukaryotic and prokaryotic RNA-Seq data are expected to code for proteins. The most practical procedure to identify likely coding transcripts is a sequence homology search, such as by BLASTX, against sequences from a well-annotated and related species. Predicting coding regions is crucial to determine the molecular role that transcripts play in the cell. Unfortunately, such well-annotated
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the nucleic acid sequence in DNA, and it is the technology by which the genome of a species can be characterized. Despite the advent of next-generation sequencing, current DNA sequencing technologies cannot read whole genomes at once, but rather reads small pieces of between 20 and 30.000 bases, depending on the technology used.
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 OmicsBox. 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
In this use case we will use the metagenomics tools included in OmicsBox to analyze the microbial communities of two different soda lakes from Brazil. The original study was carried out by Ana P. D. Andreote, et al., 2018 (doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00244). Introduction Soda lakes are special ecosystems found across Africa, Europe, Asia, etc. These lakes show high levels of sodium
