DataSheet1_Enhancing Long-Read-Based Strain-Aware Metagenome Assembly.PDF

Microbial communities are usually highly diverse and often involve multiple strains from the participating species due to the rapid evolution of microorganisms. In such a complex microecosystem, different strains may show different biological functions. While reconstruction of individual genomes at the strain level is vital for accurately deciphering the composition…

Mitogenome-wise codon usage pattern from comparative analysis of the first mitogenome of Blepharipa sp. (Muga uzifly) with other Oestroid flies

Outcome of DNA sequencing, assembly, and validation In this study, initially total DNA was isolated from the finely chopped, full-grown pupa of Blepharipa sp. The NanoDrop spectrophotometer (1294 ng/μl) and the Qubit fluorometer (732.8 ng/μl) both found that the concentration of total DNA in the sample at an optimum level for mitochondrial DNA enrichment. The Tape Station profile showed…

Transposition and duplication of MADS-domain transcription factor genes in annual and perennial Arabis species modulates flowering

Annual and perennial species occur in many plant families. Annual plants and some perennials are monocarpic (flowering once in their life cycle), characterized by a massive flowering and typically produce many seeds before the whole plant senesces. By contrast, most perennials live for many years, show delayed reproduction, and are…

PacBio’s $600 million Omniome acquisition brings together long and short DNA sequencing

Nearly three years ago, when Pacific Biosciences agreed to be acquired by Illumina, the acquisition was positioned as a pair of companies with complementary DNA sequencing technologies. Antitrust regulators believe that this is not the case, causing these companies to abandon the deal. PacBio now has another deal that aims…

New PacBio Library Prep Method Helps Cover ‘Death Valley’ Between Short and Long Reads

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA – Researchers from the University of Minnesota have developed a library preparation method for Pacific Bioscience’s Sequel platform that addresses the challenge of sequencing DNA molecules that are too long for short reads but not long enough to make long-read sequencing cost effective. Their solution: link up…
