Named Entity Recognition for Bacterial Type IV Secretion Systems
(Public Library of Science, 2011-03-29)
Research on specialized biological systems is often hampered by a lack of consistent terminology, especially across species. In bacterial Type IV secretion systems genes within one set of orthologs may have over a dozen ...
An anomalous type IV secretion system in Rickettsia is evolutionarily conserved
(Public Library of Science, 2009-03-12)
Background: Bacterial type IV secretion systems (T4SSs) comprise a diverse transporter family functioning in conjugation, competence, and effector molecule (DNA and/or protein) translocation. Thirteen genome sequences from ...
PATRIC, the bacterial bioinformatics database and analysis resource
The Pathosystems Resource Integration Center (PATRIC) is the all-bacterial Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC) (http://www.patricbrc.org). A joint effort by two of the original National Institute of Allergy and Infectious ...
Plasmids and Rickettsial Evolution: Insight from Rickettsia felis
Background The genome sequence of Rickettsia felis revealed a number of rickettsial genetic anomalies that likely contribute not only to a large genome size relative to other rickettsiae, but also to phenotypic oddities ...
Rickettsia Phylogenomics: Unwinding the Intricacies of Obligate Intracellular Life
(Public Library of Science, 2008-04-16)
Background: Completed genome sequences are rapidly increasing for Rickettsia, obligate intracellular α-proteobacteria responsible for various human diseases, including epidemic typhus and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. In ...
