PBxplore: a tool to analyze local protein structure and deformability with Protein Blocks
Walter de Azevedo Jr. –– The authors report the development and application of a suite of tools, called PBxplore. This computational tool can be used to analyze the dynamics and deformability of protein structures using Protein Blocks (PBs). It is an interesting development for scientists interesting in molecular dynamics simulations of protein structures.
Validation of picogram- and femtogram-input DNA libraries for microscale metagenomics
Hauke Smidt –– The method described here allows to probe the metagenomes of low-biomass ecosystems at significantly reduced bias.
Characterisation of the human uterine microbiome in non-pregnant women through deep sequencing of the V1-2 region of the 16S rRNA gene
Offer Erez –– The understanding of the human microbiom in immune privilige sites is important and tyhis manuscript contribute substantially to this field
Swarm v2: highly-scalable and high-resolution amplicon clustering
Gilles van Wezel –– the update of Swarm will hopefully be a useful bioinformtic tool for those in the field of amplicon sequencing and clustering.
