Singleton-Merten syndrome (SMS) is an autosomal-dominant multi-system disorder characterized by dental dysplasia, aortic calcification, skeletal abnormalities, glaucoma, psoriasis, and other conditions. Despite an apparent autosomal-dominant pattern of inheritance, the genetic background of SMS and information about its phenotypic heterogeneity remain(More)
Weissella cibaria KACC 11862 is a Gram-positive, heterofermentative, Leuconostoc-like lactic acid bacterium that is widely distributed in Korean traditional foods such as kimchi. Here we report the draft genome sequence of the type strain, W. cibaria KACC 11862 (1,599 known genes, 80 RNA genes), which consists of 72 large contigs (>100 bp in size).
Allium sativum., commonly known as garlic, is a species in the onion genus (Allium), which is a large and diverse one containing over 1,250 species. Its close relatives include chives, onion, leek and shallot. Garlic has been used throughout recorded history for culinary, medicinal use and health benefits. Currently, the interest in garlic is highly(More)
Lactobacillus farciminis is one of the most prevalent lactic acid bacterial species present during the manufacturing process of kimchi, the best-known traditional Korean dish. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of the type strain Lactobacillus farciminis KCTC 3681 (2,498,309 bp, with a G+C content of 36.4%), which consists of 5 scaffolds.
Halalkalicoccus jeotgali B3(T), isolated from salt-fermented seafood from South Korea, is an extremely halophilic archaeon belonging to the family Halobacteriaceae. Here, we present the complete genome sequence of the type strain H. jeotgali B3(T) (3,698,650 bp, with a G+C content of 62.5%), which consists of one chromosome and six plasmids. This is the(More)
Leuconostoc argentinum is one of the most prevalent lactic acid bacteria present during the manufacturing process of kimchi, the best-known traditional Korean dish. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of type strain KCTC 3773 of Leuconostoc argentinum (1,720,683 bp, with a G+C content of 42.9%), which consists of 98 large contigs (>100 bp in size).
A new Peptoniphilus species has been isolated from samples from a patient who was scheduled for endoscopic sinus surgery for chronic rhinosinusitis. The isolate, Peptoniphilus rhinitidis 1-13(T) (KCTC 5985(T)), can use peptone as a sole carbon source and produce butyrate as a metabolic end product. This is the first report of the draft genome sequence of a(More)
We captured the whole human exome by hybridization using synthesized oligonucleotides, based on a high-density microarray design, and we sequenced those captured human exons using high-throughput sequencing on a Genome Sequencer FLX instrument. Of the uniquely mapped reads, 71% fell within target regions, and these corresponded to coverage of 94% of human(More)
Recently, conjoined genes (CGs) have emerged as important genetic factors necessary for understanding the human genome. However, their formation mechanism and precise structures have remained mysterious. Based on a detailed structural analysis of 57 human CG transcript variants (CGTVs, discovered in this study) and all (833) known CGs in the human genome,(More)
SUMMARY We have developed a web server for the high-throughput annotation of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) called pipeline for EST analysis service (PESTAS). PESTAS processes entire datasets with an automated pipeline of 13 analytic services, then deposits the data into the MySQL database and transforms it into three kinds of reports: preprocessing,(More)
