The genome sequence of Xanthomonas oryzae pathovar oryzae KACC10331, the bacterial blight pathogen of rice
The nucleotide sequence was determined for the genome of Xanthomonas oryzae pathovar oryzae (Xoo) KACC10331, a bacterium that causes bacterial blight in rice (Oryza sativa L.). The genome isExpand

Identification of novel non-coding RNAs using profiles of short sequence reads from next generation sequencing data
BackgroundThe increasing interest in small non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) such as microRNAs (miRNAs), small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) and Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) and recent advances in sequencingExpand

Identification of conserved Drosophila-specific euchromatin-restricted non-coding sequence motifs.
Non-protein-coding DNA comprises the majority of animal genomes but its functions are largely unknown. We identified over 17,000 different tetranucleotide pairs in the Drosophila melanogaster genomeExpand

DNA methylation changes measured in pre‐diagnostic peripheral blood samples are associated with smoking and lung cancer risk
DNA methylation changes are associated with cigarette smoking. We used the Illumina Infinium HumanMethylation450 array to determine whether methylation in DNA from pre‐diagnostic, peripheral bloodExpand

Genome-wide DNA methylation assessment of 'BRCA1-like' early-onset breast cancer: Data from the Australian Breast Cancer Family Registry.
Breast cancers arising in women carrying a germline mutation in BRCA1 are typically high-grade, early-onset and have distinct morphological features (BRCA1-like). However, the majority of early-onsetExpand

Smoking and blood DNA methylation: novel associations, replication of previous findings and assessment of reversibility
We conducted a genome-wide association study of blood DNA methylation and smoking, attempted replication of previously discovered associations, and assessed the reversibility of smoking-associatedExpand
sEst: Accurate Sex-Estimation and Abnormality Detection in Methylation Microarray Data
DNA methylation influences predisposition, development and prognosis for many diseases, including cancer. However, it is not uncommon to encounter samples with incorrect sex labelling or atypical sexExpand
