Listeria monocytogenes is a food-borne pathogen with a high mortality rate that has also emerged as a paradigm for intracellular parasitism. We present and compare the genome sequences of L. monocytogenes (2,944,528 base pairs) and a nonpathogenic species, L. innocua (3,011,209 base pairs). We found a large number of predicted genes encoding surface and(More)
MOTIVATION Contigs-Assembly and Annotation Tool-Box (CAAT-Box) is a software package developed for the computational part of a genome project where the sequence is obtained by a shotgun strategy. CAAT-Box contains new tools to predict links between contigs by using similarity searches with other whole genome sequences. Most importantly, it allows annotation(More)
During Plasmodium falciparum asexual intraerythrocytic development, the host's cell plasma membrane is modified by the insertion of parasite proteins. One or more of these modifications mediate the cytoadherence of infected erythrocytes to host vascular endothelium. However, these surface antigens can be the target of cytophilic antibodies which promote(More)
