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 ...
Differential Stress Transcriptome Landscape of Historic and Recently Emerged Hypervirulent Strains of Clostridium difficile Strains Determined Using RNA-seq
(Public Library of Science, 2014-11-07)
C. difficile is the most common cause of nosocomial diarrhea in North America and Europe. Genomes of individual strains of C. difficile are highly divergent. To determine how divergent strains respond to environmental ...
Comparative nutritional and chemical phenome of Clostridium difficile isolates determined using phenotype microarrays
(International Society for Infectious Diseases, 2014-10)
Objectives: Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is the leading cause of infectious diarrhea in North America and Europe. The risk of CDI increases significantly in the case where antimicrobial treatment reduces the number ...
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 ...
Overview of the ID, EPI and REL tasks of BioNLP Shared Task 2011
We present the preparation, resources, results and analysis of three tasks of the BioNLP Shared Task 2011: the main tasks on Infectious Diseases (ID) and Epigenetics and Post-translational Modifications (EPI), and the ...
Identification of new genes in Sinorhizobium meliloti using the Genome Sequencer FLX system
Background Sinorhizobium meliloti is an agriculturally important model symbiont. There is an ongoing need to update and improve its genome annotation. In this study, we used a high-throughput pyrosequencing approach to ...
