Solanum tuberosum

Identification and Expression analysis of genes involved in endodormancy break in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)

BioBam Scholarship Supported Project – with OmicsBox. Researchers: Madhuri Gupta Dr. Pushpender Kumar Project and Overview At harvest, potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) tubers, one of the most important crops among vegetables, are dormant and will not sprout. Tubers contain shoot apical meristems on their surface with the ability to differenciate and grow into a new clone of the parent plant.

Metagenomic analysis of two soda lakes, with and without cyanobacterial bloom, with OmicsBox

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

Comparing taxonomic and functional compositions between metagenomic samples

Any annotation of metagenomic sequences, whether it involves pathways, clusters of orthologous genes, species or any other taxonomic or functional classification can be compared across samples. These analyses are encompassed within the Differential Abundance Analysis, and they require robust statistical approaches to achieve reliable results because metagenomics datasets often show under-sampling and low signal-to-noise ratios. All differential abundance analyses can

Verminephrobacter eiseniae

Draft genome of a new Verminephrobacter eiseniae strain

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

Exploring transcriptome completeness in OmicsBox with BUSCO

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

Predict coding regions within transcripts in OmicsBox with TransDecoder

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

Hybrid Genome Assembly in OmicsBox with SPAdes

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.

A. galli

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

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
