New Genetic Technology IDs Virus That Killed Transplant Recipients

...is true of up to 40 percent of the respiratory infections that kill about two million people worldwide each year, he said. "This new application of metagenomic pyrosequencing may well aid in the identification of unknown microbial agents that cause human disease," Whitley wrote. "The real story is the comi...

Researchers Identify Virus Possibly Responsible for Declining Honeybee Population Using 454 Sequencing Technology from Roche

... how foreign organisms living in and among the bees were identified by reading sequences of DNA isolated from the bee colonies. The study, entitled "A metagenomic survey of microbes in honey bee colony collapse disorder", appears online today, ahead of print, in the journal Science. Using 454 Sequencing technolo...

Analysis of Lake Washington microbes shows the power of metagenomic approaches

WALNUT CREEK, CAToday's powerful sequencing machines can rapidly read the genomes of entire communities of microbes, but the challenge is to extract meaningful information from the jumbled reams of data. In a paper appearing in Nature Biotechnology August 17, a collaboration headed by researcher...

DOE JGI sets 'gold standard' for metagenomic data analysis

With the advent of more powerful and economical DNA sequencing technologies, gene discovery and characterization is transitioning from single-organism studies to revealing the potential biotechnology applications embedded in communities of microbial genomes, or metagenomes. The field of metagenomi...

PHACCS, an online tool for estimating the structure and diversity of uncultured viral communities using metagenomic information

In the March 3 issue of Nature, Johns Hopkins researchers report that two proteins best known for very different activities actually come together to turn the liver into a sugar-producing factory when food is scarce. Because the liver's production of sugar is a damaging problem in people with diabe...

Reviews of microbial gene language published in special issue of Trends in Microbiology

...P. The application of standards such as the Gene Ontology, and particularly the PAMGO terms, will be essential to make sense of the massive amounts of metagenomic annotation that will be collected during this project." Another paper in the series looks at how the Gene Ontology has been used to classify the f...

Genes from tiny marine algae suggest unsuspected avenues for new research

...l biology, we will be able to discover the function of such genes. This will advance our understanding of these organisms and their ecology as well as metagenomic analyses. It's really basic cell biology, but the implications for doing ecological work are huge." Figuring out what these genes "do" could also h...

New computational technique allows comparison of whole genomes as easily as whole books

...n encoding text, sounds and images. It may also help in tracing human ancestry and disease demography using whole genome sequences, and in grouping of metagenomic data - the sequences of genome fragments from many organisms, most of which are unknown species, found in a given environmental niche or body organ. ...

Human Microbiome Project awards funds for technology development, data analysis and ethical research

...t advances in DNA sequencing technologies have accelerated a process called metagenomic sequencing. Instead of focusing on the genomes of individual microbes, metagenomic sequencing analyzes all of the DNA of all of the microbes found within a sa...

Surprising discovery from first large-scale analysis of biodiversity and biogeography of viruses

...S, resulting in the discovery of abundant viruses in the human gut (PLoS Biology, 2006) and different variants of dengue viruses. Now, with more viral metagenomic data accumulated, we are able to summarise the biodiversity and biogeography on a global scale. Microbialites are organosedimentary structures accr...

DOE JGI releases a new version of its metagenome data management and analysis system

... five additional metagenome datasets generated from microbial community samples that were the subject of recently published studies. These include the metagenomic and functional analysis of termite hindgut microbiota (Nature 450, 560-565, 22 November 2007) and the single cell genetic analysis of TM7, a rare and ...
