Shifting the limits in wheat research and breeding using a fully annotated reference genome
TLDR
This annotated reference sequence of wheat is a resource that can now drive disruptive innovation in wheat improvement, as this community resource establishes the foundation for accelerating wheat research and application through improved understanding of wheat biology and genomics-assisted breeding.

The 203 kbp Mitochondrial Genome of the Phytopathogenic Fungus Sclerotinia borealis Reveals Multiple Invasions of Introns and Genomic Duplications
TLDR
The complete sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of the necrotrophic phytopathogenic fungus Sclerotinia borealis is reported, consistent with the hypothesis that horizontal DNA transfer has played a significant role in the evolution and size expansion of the S. borealis mt genome. Expand
The Antirepressor Needed for Induction of Linear Plasmid-Prophage N15 Belongs to the SOS Regulon
TLDR
A cellular repressor whose activity is regulated by DNA damage controls N15 prophage induction, and it is identified that the N15 antirepressor gene, antC, binds to and acts against the main phage repressor, CB. Expand
The Geoglobus acetivorans Genome: Fe(III) Reduction, Acetate Utilization, Autotrophic Growth, and Degradation of Aromatic Compounds in a Hyperthermophilic Archaeon
TLDR
Genome analysis revealed pathways enabling oxidation of molecular hydrogen, proteinaceous substrates, fatty acids, aromatic compounds, n-alkanes, and organic acids through anaerobic respiration linked to Fe(III) reduction, suggesting that Geoglobus species could play an important role in microbial communities of deep-sea hydrothermal vents as lithoautotrophic producers. Expand
Genome sequence and analysis of methylotrophic yeast Hansenula polymorpha DL1
TLDR
RNA-seq analysis revealed the complex and dynamic character of the H. polymorpha transcriptome under the two studied conditions, identified abundant and highly unregulated expression of 40% of the genome in methanol grown cells, and revealed alternative splicing events. Expand
Complete Sequence of the Duckweed (Lemna minor) Chloroplast Genome: Structural Organization and Phylogenetic Relationships to Other Angiosperms
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses of 61 protein-coding genes from 38 plastid genome sequences provided strong support for the monophyly ofmonocots and position of Lemna as the next diverging lineage of monocots after Acorales, and provided support for Amborella as a sister to all other angiosperms, but in the bayesian phylogeny inference. Expand
Comparative Metagenomics of Eight Geographically Remote Terrestrial Hot Springs
TLDR
Two hot springs show high abundance of Acidithiobacillus, supporting the idea of a true thermophilic AcidithoBacillus species that can thrive in hyperthermophilic environments. Expand
Complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of a diatom alga Synedraacus and comparative analysis of diatom mitochondrial genomes
TLDR
This study demonstrates that pyrosequencing is an efficient method for complete sequencing of mitochondrial genomes from diatoms, and may soon give valuable information about the molecular phylogeny of this outstanding group of unicellular organisms. Expand
Genome analysis of Chitinivibrio alkaliphilus gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel extremely haloalkaliphilic anaerobic chitinolytic bacterium from the candidate phylum Termite Group 3.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis using ribosomal proteins and taxonomic distribution analysis of the whole proteome supported a class-level classification of ACht1 most probably affiliated to the phylum Fibribacteres, and the novel bacteria are proposed to be classified as Chitinivibrio alkaliphilus gen. nov, within a novel class Chit inivibrione. Expand
Desulfurococcus kamchatkensis sp. nov., a novel hyperthermophilic protein-degrading archaeon isolated from a Kamchatka hot spring.
TLDR
Based on the data from the phylogenetic analysis and the physiological properties of the novel isolate, strain 1221n(T) should be classified as representing a novel species, for which the name Desulfurococcus kamchatkensis sp. Expand
