2018 Journal of Ecology  
We modelled rhizobia diversity using 16S exact genetic variants, in a binomial multivariate statistical framework that controlled for climate and local soil characteristics. 3.  ...  Soil sampled at the base of larger Acacia trees contained a higher richness of rhizobia genetic variants.  ...  In contextual analysis, the effects of a variable on the response is modelled as a regression of both the individual measured variable, and the mean of the variable for the group that the individual data  ...

A synthetic oligo library and sequencing approach reveals an insulation mechanism encoded within bacterial σ54 promoters [article]

Lior Levy, Leon Anavy, Oz Solomon, Roni Cohen, Michal Brunwasser-Meirom, Shilo Ohayon, Orna Atar, Sarah Goldberg, Zohar Yakhini, Roee Amit
2016 bioRxiv   pre-print
We provide evidence to support this hypothesis using mutations to the CT-rich motif and gene expression measurements on multiple sequence variants. Modelling is also consistent with this hypothesis.  ...  We hypothesize that insulation is effected by binding of the RBS to the upstream CT-rich motif.  ...  This hypothesized mechanism is supported by modelling evidence as well as by comparing variants that mostly differ by the presence of the putative aSD element.  ...
