Using reverse-complement or just complement of SILVA database to filter rRNA from metatranscriptomics

Using reverse-complement or just complement of SILVA database to filter rRNA from metatranscriptomics 0 I want to use SILVA database to filter rRNA from metatranscriptomics. The nucleobases in the SILVA fasta file are A, U, C and G. Therefore, before indexing the SILVA fasta file, should I get the reverse-complement…

Running SortMeRNA on Multiple Files

Running SortMeRNA on Multiple Files 0 Hi all, I am VERY new to SortMeRNA (I’m a PhD student taking a bioinformatics class that has been very poorly taught). I have 27 paired samples for a total of 54 samples named like this: SRR13711719_1_val_1.fq SRR13711719_2_val_2.fq. So the format is _1_val_1.fq and…

Plasmid-Encoded VIM-2-pProducing Pseudomonas stutzeri | IDR

Introduction Pseudomonas stutzeri is an aerobic, nonfermenting, active, Gram-negative oxidase-positive bacterium with unique colony morphology.1,2 Burri and Stutzer first described it in 1985,3 and the specific metabolic properties, such as denitrification, degradation of aromatic compounds, and nitrogen fixation, distinguish it from other pseudomonads species.2,4 Historically, P. stutzeri was not commonly…
