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.
Sparganum (plerocercoid of Spirometra erinacei) is a parasite that possesses the remarkable ability to survive by successfully modifying its physiology and morphology to suit various hosts and can be found in various tissues, even the nervous system. However, surprisingly little is known about the molecular function of genes that are expressed during the(More)
A new Clostridium species has been isolated from pear orchard soil in Daejeon, Republic of Korea. The isolate, Clostridium arbusti SL206(T) (KCTC 5449(T)), showed a nitrogenase activity as well as an organic acid production. Here we first report the draft genome sequence of a novel species in the genus Clostridium within the largest Gram-positive group.
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)
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).
