A Genomic Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea (GEBA) and the Search for the Dark Matter of the Biological Universe

submitted by: dougramsey
There is a glaring gap in microbial genome sequence availability – the currently available genome sequences show a highly biased phylogenetic distribution compared to the extent of microbial diversity known today. This bias has resulted in major limitations in our knowledge of microbial genome complexity and our understanding of the evolution, physiology and metabolic capacity of microbes. Although there have been small efforts in sequencing genomes from across the tree of life for...

Source Organism and Molecule Information at INSDC and the Trace Archives

submitted by: dougramsey
Guy Cochrane, European Nucleotide Archive, EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute, Welcome Trust Genome Campus The databases of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC, DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank) and of the Trace and Short Read Archive collaborations between the NCBI and the EBI provide free and comprehensive access to nucleotide sequencing information, from raw sequencing machine output through to functional annotation. As well as offering a direct public portal into...

New Sequencing Technologies at JGI and Applications in Bioenergy Research

submitted by: dougramsey
The US DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is a high throughput sequencing and genomic research center involved in a myriad of sequencing projects. JGI’s major effort is the sequencing of genomes and transcriptomes of plants, microbes and environmental metagenomic samples of relevance to the DOE missions of carbon sequestration, bioremediation and energy production. Roche/454’s platform utilizes emulsion PCR for template amplification and pyrosequencing technology on high well-density...
