  • genomic islands

    hi all- is there a softwrae that is used to determine (genomic islands) within the draft assembled bacterial genomes?- thanks all

  • #2
    There are lots of approaches, often based on comparison to several close relatives to find novel genes not in the relatives. If these form clusters they are candidates for horizontally acquired islands - although if in a lone contig you might also suspect contamination.

      thanks- what is the fastest approach to determine unique genes (specially genomic islands) within the assembled draft genomes

        what is the software can tell about genomic islands (no. size, etc) in relation to the reference bacterial genome please?

          You'll just need to pick out differences manually. Use a visual genome aligner like Mauve to compare your genome against a reference. You can even get as simple as a straight up dotplot. Large genetic insertions should be blindingly obvious.

              The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
              by seqadmin



              Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

              Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
              by seqadmin


              New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

              A major leap in the field has
