An alternative approach to multiple genome comparison

Alban Mancheron, Raluca Uricaru, Eric Rivals
2011 Nucleic Acids Research  
However, efficiency, flexibility and objectives of current methods do not suit the whole spectrum of applications, genome sizes and organizations. Innovative approaches are still needed.  ...  We also find out that a substantial number of genes thought to be strain specific have potential orthologs in the other strains.  ...  In bacteriology, the genomic part shared among all strains, the 'core' genome, represents the essential genic component, while the specific part, or 'dispensable' genome, abound in genes associated with  ...

Classification of genomic islands using decision trees and their ensemble algorithms

Dongsheng Che, Cory Hockenbury, Robert Marmelstein, Khaled Rasheed
2010 BMC Genomics  
Genomic islands (GIs) are clusters of alien genes in some bacterial genomes, but not be seen in the genomes of other strains within the same genus.  ...  Despite the discovery of the GI associated features, accurate detection of GIs is still far from satisfactory.  ...  The classifiers can then be used as the basis for classifying any genomic segment in a whole genome.  ...

We study the changes in the population size due to this mixing and interpret them through a counterplay of purifying selection and of haplotype complementarity.  ...  The population in the sexual Penna ageing model is first separated into several reproductively isolated groups. Then, after equilibration, sexual mixing between the groups is allowed.  ...  For more efficient reproduction, the number of different haplotypes should be restricted and in fact there are only two different complementing haplotypes in the whole population as it was shown in Ref  ...

The Parameters of the Menzerath-Altmann Law in Genomes

Jaume Baixeries, Antoni Hernández-Fernández, Núria Forns, Ramon Ferrer-i-Cancho
2013 Journal of Quantitative Linguistics  
The relationship between the size of the whole and the size of the parts in language and music is known to follow Menzerath-Altmann law at many levels of description (morphemes, words, sentences...).  ...  Qualitatively, the law states that larger the whole, the smaller its parts, e.g., the longer a word (in syllables) the shorter its syllables (in letters or phonemes).  ...  This work was supported by the grant Iniciació i reincorporació a la recerca from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and the grant BASMATI (TIN2011-27479-C04-03) from the Spanish Ministry of Science  ...
