Tools-4-Metatool (T4M) is a suite of web-tools, implemented in PERL, which analyses, parses, and manipulates files related to Metatool. Its main goal is to assist the work with Metatool. T4M has two major sets of tools: Analysis and Compare. Analysis visualizes the results of Metatool (convex basis, elementary flux modes, and enzyme subsets) and facilitates… (More)
Functional annotation is the process that assigns a biological functionality to a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequence. It requires searching in huge data sets for candidates, and inferring the most appropriate features based on the information found and expert knowledge. When humans perform most of these tasks, results are of a high quality, but there is a… (More)
The whole-genome shotgun sequence of Rhodococcus ruber strain Chol-4 is presented here. This organism was shown to be able to grow using many steroids as the sole carbon and energy sources. These sequence data will help us to further explore the metabolic abilities of this versatile degrader.
Finding the genes that exist within a DNA sequence and assigning them biological features and functions is one of the biggest challenges of Genomics. This task, called annotation, has to be as accurate and reliable as possible, because this information will be applied in other researches. Ideally, each sequence should be annotated and validated by a human… (More)
