Klf4 reverts developmentally programmed restriction of ground state pluripotency
Mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells derived from pluripotent early epiblast contribute functionally differentiated progeny to all foetal lineages of chimaeras. By contrast, epistem cell (EpiSC) linesExpand
VFDB: a reference database for bacterial virulence factors
Bacterial pathogens continue to impose a major threat to public health worldwide in the 21st century. Expand
VFDB 2016: hierarchical and refined dataset for big data analysis—10 years on
The virulence factor database (VFDB) is dedicated to providing up-to-date knowledge of virulence factors (VFs) of various bacterial pathogens. Expand
VFDB 2012 update: toward the genetic diversity and molecular evolution of bacterial virulence factors
We present the recent major updates of VFDB in an attempt to summarize some of the most important virulence mechanisms by comparing different compositions and organizations of VFs from various bacterial pathogens, identifying core components and phylogenetic clades and shedding new light on the forces that shape the evolutionary history of bacterial pathogenesis. Expand
VFDB 2019: a comparative pathogenomic platform with an interactive web interface
We introduced to VFDB an integrated and automatic pipeline, VFanalyzer, to systematically identify known/potential VFs in complete/draft bacterial genomes. Expand

  • 2 April 2005
Methods were developed for predicting two kinds of superior genotypes (superior line and superior hybrid) based on quantative trait locus (QTL) effects including epistatic and QTL × environmentExpand
Algorithms for Materialized View Design in Data Warehousing Environment
We present a framework for analyzing the issues in selecting views to materialize so as to achieve the best combination of good query performance and low view maintenance. Expand
Neuropilin-2 mediates VEGF-C–induced lymphatic sprouting together with VEGFR3
If neuropilin-2 and the growth factor VEGF-C don’t come together, lymphatic vessels don’t branch apart.
A Pseudomonas aeruginosa type VI secretion phospholipase D effector targets both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
Widely found in animal and plant-associated proteobacteria, type VI secretion systems (T6SSs) are potentially capable of facilitating diverse interactions with eukaryotes and/or other bacteria.Expand
Virome Analysis for Identification of Novel Mammalian Viruses in Bat Species from Chinese Provinces
ABSTRACT Bats are natural hosts for a large variety of zoonotic viruses. This study aimed to describe the range of bat viromes, including viruses from mammals, insects, fungi, plants, and phages, inExpand
