ePath: an online database towards comprehensive essential gene annotation for prokaryotes.

Experimental techniques for identifying essential genes (for example) in prokaryotes are generally expensive, taking a long time and sometimes unrealistic. Emerging silico methods provide alternative methods for for example prediction, but often have limits including significant calculation requirements and a lack of biological explanation. Here we propose a new computer algorithm for for example the prediction in prokaryotes with an online database for quick access to forecasting results for example of more than 4,000 prokaryotes. At EPATH, gene essentiality is linked to the biological functions annotated by KEGG Ortholog (KO).

Two new rating systems, namely, e_score and p_score, are proposed for each KB as evaluation criteria, for example. E_Score represents the appearance and essentiality of a KO given in the existing experimental results of the essentiality of genes, while P_Score refers to the essentiality of genes based on the principle that a gene is essential if it plays a Role in the processing of genetic information, the maintenance of the cellular envelope or the production of energy.

The new prediction algorithm, for example, indicates a prediction accuracy ranging from 75% to 91% on the basis of the validation of five new experimental studies on an identification for example. Our overall objective with EPATH is to provide an overall and reliable reference for the annotation of the essentiality of the genes, facilitating the study of these prokaryotes without information of essentially derived genes experimentally.

The detection of theranostic biomarkers is mandatory for the therapeutic management of skin melanoma. The BRAF and NRAS genes must be tested in routine clinical practice. The methods used to identify these modifications must be sensitive to detecting mutant alleles in a bottom of wild and specific type alleles to identify the good mutation.

They should not require too many materials because in some cases, the available samples are small biopsies. Finally, they should also be fast enough to allow rapid therapeutic management of patients. Sixty-five melanoma samples incorporated by formolate (FFPE) paraffin (FFPE) are prospectively tested for braf mutations with the VE1 antibody and for Mutings of Braf and NRAS with Idylla NRAS mututter cartridges -BRAF-EGFR S492R. The results were compared to our practice of laboratory routine, the amplification allele and / or sequencing of Sanger and Sanger sequencing and discordant cases confirmed by digital PCR.

Out of discordant mutations by designs, system failures and the quantity of DNA or quality failures, BRAF IHC has demonstrated an overall concordance of 89% for the mutation detection of BRAF V600E, the Idylla system has granted A 100% concordance for the mutation detection of BRAF and 92.1% for NRAAS mutation detection compared to our reference.

Hgree: Database of genes transferred horizontally determined by the reconciliation of trees.

The Hgree database provides information on the transfer of horizontal genes of putative genome (HGT) for 2472 fully sequenced prokaryotic genomes. This task is accomplished by reconstructing maximum maximum mimic phyloge genetic trees for each orthologue gene and corresponding 16S reference reference sets of the Arrn, then bring the two trees together under the parsimony framework.

The method of reconciling the trees is generally considered a reliable way to detect HGT events, but its practical use has remained limited because the method is essentially intensive and conceptual. In this respect, hgree represents a useful addition to the organic community and allows for quick and easy recovery of information from the acquired genes of HGT to better understand microbial taxonomy and the evolution. The database is freely available and can be easily scalded and updated to keep pace with the rapid increase in genomic information.ePath: an online database towards comprehensive essential gene annotation for prokaryotes.

Optimization of the dispersion parameters of the Gaussian plume model for CO₂ dispersion.

Carbon capture and storage projects (CCS) and improved oil recovery (EOR) involve the possibility of accidental release of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. To quantify CO2 propagation as a result of this version, the “Gaussian” dispersion model is often used to estimate the resulting CO2 concentration levels in the surrounding area. The Gaussian model allows quick estimates of concentration levels. However, the traditionally recommended values ​​of the “dispersion parameters” in the Gaussian model can not be directly applicable to the CO2 dispersion.

This article presents an optimization technique for obtaining the dispersion parameters in order to obtain a rapid estimate of CO2 concentration levels in the atmosphere according to CO2 eruptions. The optimized dispersion parameters allow the Gaussian model to produce rapid estimates of CO2 concentrations, thus preventing the need to configure and run much more complicated models. The computer fluid dynamics (CFD) models were used to produce reference CO2 dispersion profiles in various stability classes of the atmosphere (CSA), different “source forces” and degrees of roughness on the ground. The performance of CFD models has been validated against “Fox Kit” field measurements, involving dispersion on flat horizontal land, both with low and high roughness regions.

An optimization model using a genetic algorithm (GA) to determine the best dispersion parameters of the Gaussian plume model has been set up. Optimal values ​​of the dispersion parameters for different CSAs that can be used in the Gaussian plume model to predict the CO2 dispersion have been obtained.

PCV2 appeared as one of the most devastating viral infections of pork agriculture, resulting in relevant economic impact due to direct losses and control strategies. Epidemiological and experimental studies have shown that genetic diversity potentially affects the Virulence of PVC2. The growing number of comprehensive PCV2 genomes and partial sequences available in Genbank interviewed the accepted PCV2 classification.

Nine hundred and seventy-fifteen comprehensive Genomas PCV2 and 1,270 ORF2 sequences available from Genbank have been subjected to recombinant, PASC and phylogenetic analyzes and results were used for comparison with the previous classification scheme.
