1. Introduction Juvenile rhesus macaques commonly suffer from idiopathic chronic diarrhea (ICD). This disease is characterized by inflammation of the colon and repeated bouts of diarrhea. It is a common cause of morbidity and mortality among macaques because it is unresponsive to drugs. The gut microbiome of macaques with ICD is characterized by abrupt changes when compared to healthy individuals.
Understanding the molecular differences that underlie the different COVID19 progression severity with Omic
OmicsBox Supported Project. Researchers: Hayden Waller, Cornell University, USA Background and Project Overview: One of the primary outcomes of speciation – the formation of new species – is the generation of pre-mating barriers that prevent or greatly reduce gene flow. Behavioral changes are perhaps the most potent in the early stages of speciation. In particular, the divergent evolution of sexual
BioBam Supported Project – with OmicsBox. Researchers: Dr. Abhishek Kumar, Computational Genome Biology Lab at Institute of Bioinformatics, Bangalore, India Project: The pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pushed the entire world on a halt with the largest lockdown of our times. A total numbers of infected cases 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
This project reproduces the study carried out by Hittalmani S. et al. in 2016 about the S. oryzae fungus, which causes sheath rot of rice. We used OmicsBox for all necessary steps till functional analysis in order to predict pathogenic functions. (Original research paper: https://doi.org/10.1186/s12864-016-2599-0)
