MOTIVATION With the rapid development of next-generation sequencing techniques, metagenomics, also known as environmental genomics, has emerged as an exciting research area that enables us to analyze the microbial environment in which we live. An important step for metagenomic data analysis is the identification and taxonomic characterization of DNA(More)
With the rapid development of genome sequencing techniques, the traditional research methods of microorganisms based on the isolation and cultivation are gradually replaced by metagenomics, also known as environmental genomics. The first step, which is still a major bottleneck, of metagenomic is the taxonomic characterization of the DNA fragments (reads)(More)
At 4.2 Mb overall, the Drosophila melanogaster Muller F element (dot chromosome) is an unusual autosome; it is broadly heterochromatic, but the distal 1.3 Mb has a gene density and expression pattern similar to other autosomes. More intriguing is the large expansion of the D. ananassae F element (~20 Mb). Elucidating the factors that contribute to this(More)
