Towards Computer Assisted Markup of Data: Habitat-Lite

submitted by: dougramsey
Lynette Hirschman, The MITRE Corporation Co-authors: Scott Mardis, Cheryl Clark, Kevin Cohen Habitat-Lite (aka EnvO-Lite) is a set of structured terms designed to facilitate capture of high-level information about habitat and sample source metadata for genomics and metagenomics samples. It is designed to be light-weight and compact. Habitat-Lite terms are drawn from the full EnvO ontology and are made avail able by the EnvO Consortium in the EnvO-Lite-GSC OBO file. Habitat-Lite terms include...

Accessing the Metatranscriptome for Complex Marine Microbial Communities

submitted by: dougramsey
Sequencing the expressed genetic information of an ecosystem (metatranscriptome) can provide information about the response of organisms to varying environ mental conditions. Until recently, metatranscriptomics has been limited to microarray technology and random cloning methodologies. The application of high-throughput sequencing technology is now enabling access to both known and previously unknown transcripts in natural com munities. We present a study of a complex marine meta...
