Targeted Gene Identification from Short Gene Fragments in Metagenome and their Use in Biogeochemical Studies

submitted by: dougramsey
Metagenomics allows for a new approach to studying biogeochemical processes in an environment, by giving an approximation of a community’s biogeochemical potential through the genes involved in a given process. Lipid biomarkers are well suited to this kind of approach because they are important for a number of biogeochemical questions and some have well studied biosynthetic pathways. One important class of lipid biomarkers, triterpenoids, were investigated in a new metagenomic sample that...

The Human Oral Microbiome by Floyd Dewhirst, Harvard University

submitted by: dougramsey
The human oral cavity is a diverse habitat that contains approximately bacterial 600 predominant species. The oral microbiome is comprised of 44% named species, 12% isolates representing unnamed species, and 44% phylotypes known only from 16S rRNA based cloning studies. Species from 11 phyla have been identified: Firmicutes (211), Bacteroidetes (106), Proteobacteria (99), Actinobacteria (64), Spirochaetes (49), Fusobacteria (29), TM7 (12), Synergistetes (10), Chlamydiae (1), Chloroflexi (1)...

Advances to the Biochemical, Genetic and Genomic (BiGG) Database

submitted by: jypark
The BiGG database is a widely used resource for sharing genome-scale metabolic reconstructions. BiGG integrates several published genome-scale metabolic networks into one resource with standard nomenclature which allows components to be compared across different species. Furthermore, BiGG contains links to several publicly available databases where additional information can be found and integrated. In addition, BiGG contains a customized export tool that enables the generation of SBML...

Installing and using the BioBar toolbar for Firefox

submitted by: simont

This video shows how to install and use the BioBar toolbar on Firefox. This is a nifty addition to the browser that makes accessing many of the usual online databases and tools very easy. It also allows you to easily run a search at these databases without having to navigate to the website first. BioBar can be found at and was written by Jawahar Swaminathan at the EBI.
