What is the typical host-to-bug DNA ratio found in nanopore sequencing without amplification?
I'm interested in sequencing a human sputum sample using an ONT MinION without performing any type of whole genome DNA amplification or targeted PCR. Has anyone found a good reference (or anecdotal ...
eggNOG API, how's it work?
Background eggNOG uses seed orthologues which correspond to its own internal database, so for example J421_1876 can be placed in its online search engine here. This ...
Compare illumina sequencing output with reference genome
I am new to whole genome sequencing. I want to compare illumina whole genome sequencing of mutants of a particular bacteria with a genome (not annotated) of the original strain to look for what the ...
How to modify dot plot in MUMmer 3 for bacteria comparative genomics?
I was trying to make a dotplot to visualize genome-genome sequence alignment by using the MUMmer 3 software (it is typically used to compare whole genome sequences of bacteria). I runned the same ...

I'm looking at the new version of the Snomed dictionary and the concept 707993000 Clostridium difficile toxin A + B (substance) is deactivated (and outdated) since ...
Search for specific sequence in group of bacterial genomes
I have a group of L. plantarum genomes. I identified the pangenome using Roary. From the pangenome, I was able to identify unique 'genes' for some of the strains. One of these (actually several were, ...
Evolutionary speaking, what are the constraints on having new mutations?
Evolutionary speaking, some mutations lead to better fitness of an organism and its adaptation to the environment changes, but I was wondering if there are some constraints on having new mutations. ...
