MOTIVATION Analysis of the functions of microorganisms and their dynamics in the environment is essential for understanding microbial ecology. For analysis of highly similar sequences of a functional gene family using microarrays, the previous long oligonucleotide probe design strategies have not been useful in generating probes. RESULTS We developed a(More)
Brassica rapa is a member of the Brassicaceae family and includes vegetables and oil crops that are cultivated worldwide. The introduction of durable resistance against turnip mosaic virus (TuMV) into agronomically important cultivars has been a significant challenge for genetic and horticultural breeding studies of B. rapa. Based on our previous(More)
Our newly designed primers were evaluated for the molecular analysis of specific groups of the sqr gene encoding sulfide : quinone reductase (SQR) in sediment environments. Based on the phylogenetic analysis, we classified the sqr sequences into six groups. PCR primers specific for each group were developed. We successfully amplified sqr-like gene sequences(More)
ECgene (http://genome.ewha.ac.kr/ECgene) was developed to provide functional annotation for alternatively spliced genes. The applications encompass the genome-based transcript modeling for alternative splicing (AS), domain analysis with Gene Ontology (GO) annotation and expression analysis based on the EST and SAGE data. We have expanded the ECgene's AS(More)
Despite the importance of soybean as a major crop, genome-wide variation and evolution of cultivated soybeans are largely unknown. Here, we catalogued genome variation in an annual soybean population by high-depth resequencing of 10 cultivated and 6 wild accessions and obtained 3.87 million high-quality single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) after excluding(More)
Over the last 30 years, Hanwoo has been selectively bred to improve economically important traits. Hanwoo is currently the representative Korean native beef cattle breed, and it is believed that it shared an ancestor with a Chinese breed, Yanbian cattle, until the last century. However, these two breeds have experienced different selection pressures during(More)
Despite the intensive soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill] genome studies, the high chromosome number (20) of the soybean plant relative to many other major crops has hindered the development of a high-resolution genomewide genetic map derived from a single population. Here, we report such a map, which was constructed in an F15 population derived from a cross(More)
Analysis of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is becoming a key research in genomics fields. Many functional analyses of SNPs have been carried out for coding regions and splicing sites that can alter proteins and mRNA splicing. However, SNPs in non-coding regulatory regions can also influence important biological regulation. Presently, there are few(More)
Sequencing depth, which is directly related to the cost and time required for the generation, processing, and maintenance of next-generation sequencing data, is an important factor in the practical utilization of such data in clinical fields. Unfortunately, identifying an exome sequencing depth adequate for clinical use is a challenge that has not been(More)
Staphylococcus vitulinus is a coagulase-negative staphylococcus in the family Staphylococcaceae. This report describes the draft genome sequence of S. vitulinus F1028, which was isolated from a traditional Korean soybean food (meju). This 2.56-Mbp genome sequence is the first S. vitulinus genome of a strain isolated from a fermented soybean product.
