In-Depth Analysis of Bacillus anthracis 16S rRNA Genes and Transcripts Reveals Intra- and Intergenomic Diversity and Facilitates Anthrax Detection

Various ratios of 16S-BA/BC-alleles constitute possible explanations for differences in FISH signals of cells of diverse B. anthracis strains (Fig. 1). Indeed, we found a significant correlation between 16S-BA/BC-allele ratios in sequenced genomes and mean intensities of the Cy3 FISH signals targeting the16S-BA-allele (tested with the cor.test function in R, Pearson’s…

The Identification of Prognostic and Metastatic Alternative Splicing in Skin Cutaneous Melanoma

Skin cutaneous melanoma (SKCM) is a type of highly invasive cancer originated from melanocytes. It is reported that aberrant alternative splicing (AS) plays an important role in the neoplasia and metastasis of many types of cancer. Therefore, we investigated whether ASEs of pre-RNA have such an influence on the prognosis…
