Project description:Nitrification, the oxidation of ammonia via nitrite to nitrate, has always been considered to be a two-step process catalysed by chemolithoautotrophic microorganisms oxidizing either ammonia or nitrite. No known nitrifier carries out both steps, although complete nitrification should be energetically advantageous. This functional separation has puzzled microbiologists for a century. Here we report on the discovery and cultivation of a completely nitrifying bacterium from the genus Nitrospira, a globally distributed group of nitrite oxidizers. The genome of this chemolithoautotrophic organism encodes the pathways both for ammonia and nitrite oxidation, which are concomitantly activated during growth by ammonia oxidation to nitrate. Genes affiliated with the phylogenetically distinct ammonia monooxygenase and hydroxylamine dehydrogenase genes of Nitrospira are present in many environments and were retrieved on Nitrospira contigs in new metagenomes from engineered systems. These findings fundamentally change our picture of nitrification and point to completely nitrifying Nitrospira as key components of nitrogen-cycling microbial communities.
Project description:This dataset contains the transcriptome sequence of Zostera marina as produced by Illumina sequencing. Four tissues were sequenced, female flower in late and early stages of development, the male flower, the root and leaf tissue. Full transcriptome sequencing of four tissues, including female flower at two time points in development
Project description:we used high-throughput Illumina Genome Analyzer IIx (GAIIx) technology to sequence the small RNA transcriptomes of the mangrove species, Avicennia marina. Based on sequence similarity or the secondary structure of precursors, we have identified 193 conserved miRNAs and 26 novel miRNAs in the small RNA transcriptome of Avicennia marina. 1 sample
Project description:The goal of this study is to elucidate the molecular mechanism that allowed NB-1 xenograft tumors to grow out in the presence of continued ALK inhibition. Poly(A)-selected RNA was extracted from tissues of NB-1 tumors that progressed on ceritinib treatment and those treated with a vehicle to identify differentially expressed genes between these two groups. Overall design: mRNA profiles of NB-1 xenograft tumors that progressed on ceritinib treatment and those treated with a vehicle were generated by RNA sequencing, in duplicate, using Illumina HiSeq 2500.
