ProDom is a comprehensive database of protein domain families generated from the global comparison of all available protein sequences. Recent improvements include the use of three-dimensional (3D) information from the SCOP database; a completely redesigned web interface (http://www.toulouse.inra.fr/prodom.html); visualization of ProDom domains on 3D(More)
MOTIVATION For the biologist, running bioinformatics analyses involves a time-consuming management of data and tools. Users need support to organize their work, retrieve parameters and reproduce their analyses. They also need to be able to combine their analytic tools using a safe data flow software mechanism. Finally, given that scientific tools can be(More)
The ProDom database is a comprehensive set of protein domain families automatically generated from the SWISS-PROT and TrEMBL sequence databases. An associated database, ProDom-CG, has been derived as a restriction of ProDom to completely sequenced genomes. The ProDom construction method is based on iterative PSI-BLAST searches and multiple alignments are(More)
SUMMARY Transcriptome sequencing represents a fundamental source of information for genome-wide studies and transcriptome analysis and will become increasingly important for expression analysis as new sequencing technologies takes over array technology. The identification of the protein-coding region in transcript sequences is a prerequisite for systematic(More)
BACKGROUND In rectal surgery, some situations can be critical, such as anterior topography of locally advanced low tumors with a positive predictive radial margin, especially in a narrow pelvis of men who are obese. Transanal proctectomy is a new laparoscopic technique that uses the transanal endoscopic microsurgery device. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study(More)
In the present study, we investigated the gene distribution among strains of the highly polymorphic plant pathogenic beta-proteobacterium Ralstonia solanacearum, paying particular attention to the status of known or candidate pathogenicity genes. Based on the use of comparative genomic hybridization on a pangenomic microarray for the GMI1000 reference(More)
The availability of next-generation sequences of transcripts from prokaryotic organisms offers the opportunity to design a new generation of automated genome annotation tools not yet available for prokaryotes. In this work, we designed EuGene-P, the first integrative prokaryotic gene finder tool which combines a variety of high-throughput data, including(More)
Ralstonia solanacearum is the agent of bacterial wilt infecting >200 different plant species covering >50 botanical families. The genus R. solanacearum can be classified into four phylotypes and each phylotype can be further subdivided into sequevars. The potato brown rot strains of R. solanacearum from phylotype IIB, sequevar 1 (IIB1), historically known(More)
Rhizobium-induced root nodules are specialized organs for symbiotic nitrogen fixation. Indeterminate-type nodules are formed from an apical meristem and exhibit a spatial zonation which corresponds to successive developmental stages. To get a dynamic and integrated view of plant and bacterial gene expression associated with nodule development, we used a(More)
The Xanthomonadaceae family contains two xylem-limited plant pathogenic bacterial species, Xanthomonas albilineans and Xylella fastidiosa. X. fastidiosa was the first completely sequenced plant pathogen. It is insect-vectored, has a reduced genome and does not possess hrp genes which encode a Type III secretion system found in most plant pathogenic(More)
