Genome sequence and analysis of the tuber crop potato
The potato genome sequence provides a platform for genetic improvement of this vital crop and predicts 39,031 protein-coding genes and presents evidence for at least two genome duplication events indicative of a palaeopolyploid origin. Expand
Shifting the limits in wheat research and breeding using a fully annotated reference genome
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.

Genomic sequence and analysis of the atypical temperate bacteriophage N15.
The unique structure of the N15 genome suggests that the large global population of bacteriophages may exhibit a much greater diversity of genomic architectures than was previously recognized. Expand

The lambdoid phage N15 of Escherichia coli is very unusual among temperate phages in that its prophage is not integrated into chromosome but is a linear plasmid molecule with covalently closed ends, suggesting that these phages may belong to a group diverged from a common ancestor. Expand
The 203 kbp Mitochondrial Genome of the Phytopathogenic Fungus Sclerotinia borealis Reveals Multiple Invasions of Introns and Genomic Duplications
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
Bidirectional replication from an internal ori site of the linear N15 plasmid prophage.
N15 prophage replication appears to follow a mechanism that is distinct from that employed by eukaryotic replicons with this type of telomere and suggests the possibility of evolutionarily independent appearances of prokaryotic and eukARYotic replicon with covalently closed telomeres. Expand
The Antirepressor Needed for Induction of Linear Plasmid-Prophage N15 Belongs to the SOS Regulon
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
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.

Genome sequence and analysis of methylotrophic yeast Hansenula polymorpha DL1
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
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.
