    Comprehensive benchmarking and ensemble approaches for metagenomic classifiers

    One of the main challenges in metagenomics is the identification of microorganisms in clinical and environmental samples. While an extensive and heterogeneous set of computational tools is available to classif...

    DESMAN: a new tool for de novo extraction of strains from metagenomes

    We introduce DESMAN for De novo Extraction of Strains from Metagenomes. Large multi-sample metagenomes are being generated but strain variation results in fragmentary co-assemblies. Current algorithms can bin ...

    DNA epigenome editing using CRISPR-Cas SunTag-directed DNMT3A

    DNA methylation has widespread effects on gene expression during development. However, our ability to assign specific function to regions of DNA methylation is limited by the poor correlation between global pa...

    Extensive transcriptomic and epigenomic remodelling occurs during Arabidopsis thaliana germination

    Seed germination involves progression from complete metabolic dormancy to a highly active, growing seedling. Many factors regulate germination and these interact extensively, forming a complex network of input...

    Natural genetic variation of the cardiac transcriptome in non-diseased donors and patients with dilated cardiomyopathy

    Genetic variation is an important determinant of RNA transcription and splicing, which in turn contributes to variation in human traits, including cardiovascular diseases.

    Genome build information is an essential part of genomic track files

    Genomic locations are represented as coordinates on a specific genome build version, but the build information is frequently missing when coordinates are provided. We show that this information is essential to...

    Splatter: simulation of single-cell RNA sequencing data

    As single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) technologies have rapidly developed, so have analysis methods. Many methods have been tested, developed, and validated using simulated datasets. Unfortunately, current...

    Identification of high-confidence RNA regulatory elements by combinatorial classification of RNA–protein binding sites

    Crosslinking immunoprecipitation sequencing (CLIP-seq) technologies have enabled researchers to characterize transcriptome-wide binding sites of RNA-binding protein (RBP) with high resolution. We apply a soft-...

    Non-base-contacting residues enable kaleidoscopic evolution of metazoan C2H2 zinc finger DNA binding

    The C2H2 zinc finger (C2H2-ZF) is the most numerous protein domain in many metazoans, but is not as frequent or diverse in other eukaryotes. The biochemical and evolutionary mechanisms that underlie the divers...

    Protein recoding by ADAR1-mediated RNA editing is not essential for normal development and homeostasis

    Adenosine-to-inosine (A-to-I) editing of dsRNA by ADAR proteins is a pervasive epitranscriptome feature. Tens of thousands of A-to-I editing events are defined in the mouse, yet the functional impact of most i...
