BACKGROUND We sequenced four plasmids of the genus Listeria, including two novel plasmids from L. monocytogenes serotype 1/2c and 7 strains as well as one from the species L. grayi. A comparative analysis in conjunction with 10 published Listeria plasmids revealed a common evolutionary background. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS All analysed plasmids share a common(More)
Listeria monocytogenes is a food-borne pathogen that causes infections with a high-mortality rate and has served as an invaluable model for intracellular parasitism. Here, we report complete genome sequences for two L. monocytogenes strains belonging to serotype 4a (L99) and 4b (CLIP80459), and transcriptomes of representative strains from lineages I, II,(More)
The growing amount of information resulting from the increasing number of publicly available genomes and experimental results thereof necessitates the development of comprehensive systems for data processing and analysis. In this paper, we describe the current state and latest developments of our BRIGEP bioinformatics software system consisting of three(More)
BACKGROUND The introduction of high-throughput genome sequencing and post-genome analysis technologies, e.g. DNA microarray approaches, has created the potential to unravel and scrutinize complex gene-regulatory networks on a large scale. The discovery of transcriptional regulatory interactions has become a major topic in modern functional genomics. (More)
In order to understand the phenotype of any living system, it is essential to not only investigate its genes, but also the specific metabolic pathway variant of the organism of interest, ideally in comparison with other organisms. The Comparative Pathway Analyzer, CPA, calculates and displays the differences in metabolic reaction content between two sets of(More)
UNLABELLED Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and coronary heart disease (CHD) are both frequent in the middle ages. Both disease share a similar spectrum or risk factors and attendant diseases. The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea in patients with coronary heart disease diagnosed by coronary angiography. Furthermore,(More)
