Members of the human aldo-keto reductase(AKR)superfamily have been reported to be involved in cancer progression, and to investigate their role further a quantitative method to measure human AKR proteins in cells using mTRAQ-based multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) has been developed. AKR peptides with multiple transitions were carefully selected upon tryptic digestion of the recombinant AKR proteins, while AKR proteins were identified by SDS-PAGE fractionation coupled with LC MS/MS. Utilizing mTRAQ triplex labeling to produce the...

Genomic data from Triticum urartu - the progenitor of wheat A genome

H-Q Ling, S Zhao, C Zhang, Y Tao, C Gao, Q Liang, D Wang, A Zhang & J Wang
The wheat A genome, as a basic genome of bread wheat and other polyploid wheats, is centrally important to the evolution, domestication, and genetic improvement of wheat. The progenitor of the A genome is the diploid wild einkorn wheat Triticum urartu. Here, we sequenced T. urartu (accession G1812) using a whole-genome shotgun strategy on the Illumina HiSeq 2000 platform, and assembled the genome using SOAPdenovo2 with 448.49 Gb of filtered high-quality sequence data. The genome...

Genomic data from Aegilops tauschii - The Progenitor of Wheat D Genome

J Jia, S Zhao, W He, Y Tao, C Zhang, C Gao, D Li, L Mao & J Wang
A spontaneous hybridization of the wild diploid grass Aegilops tauschii (2n=14, DD) with cultivated tetraploid wheat Triticum turgidum (2n=4x=28, AABB) 8,000~10,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent resulted in the bread wheat (Triticum aestivum; 2n=6x=42, AABBDD), one of the earliest cultivated crops in modern agriculture. We sequenced the 4.36-gigabase (Gb) genome of Ae. tauschii by generating ~90x genome coverage of short reads from a series of libraries with various insert sizes. The assembled scaffolds of...

Stress responsive proteins are actively regulated during rice (Oryza sativa) embryogenesis as indicated by quantitative proteomics analysis

J Zi, J Zhang, Q Wang, B Zhou, J Zhong, C Zhang, X Qiu, B Wen, S Zhang, X Fu, L Lin & S Liu
Embryogenesis is the beginning of a plant’s life, and the molecular changes that occur during embryonic development are largely unknown. To explore the relevant molecular events, we used the isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantification (iTRAQ) coupled with shotgun proteomics technique (iTRAQ/Shotgun) to study the proteomic changes of rice embryos during embryogenesis. For the first time, a total of 2,165 unique proteins were identified in rice embryos by using the Q-Exactive Mass spectrometry, and...

CEGMA gene predictions for Assemblathon 2 entries

KR Bradnam, JN Fass & IK Korf
Assemblathon 2 genome assemblies were assessed for their genic content. This was done by using published tool (CEGMA) that looks for the presence of nearly full-length genes within a single scaffold sequence. Such genes must match HMMs made from a set of 458 highlyconserved genes that are presumed to be conserved in all eukaryotes.

These validated Fosmid regions (VFRs) were included as an additional file as part of the Assemblathon 2 manuscript. This file contains the complete assembled Fosmid sequences for both species (47 sequences for bird, 29 for snake).

Holobiomic division of labor in fungus-farming termites

M Poulsen, H Hu, C Li, J.J Boomsma & G Zhang
Termites, Macrotermes natalensis, rely on gut symbionts to decompose organic matter, but the derived Macrotermitinae domesticated Termitomyces fungi to produce their food. This transition to fungiculture led to a change in the ancestral gut symbionts towards a novel gut microbiome, but the complementary roles of the major components of this obligate symbiosis have remained enigmatic. Here we obtained the genomes of a Macrotermes natalensis termite, its Termitomyces fungus cultivar, as well as community gut microbiomes...

Background: Parrots are considered one of the most behaviorally advanced vertebrate groups. They have an advanced ability of vocal learning. Parrots can imitate human speech, synchronize their body movements to a rhythmic beat, and understand complex concepts of referential meaning to sounds. However, very little is known about the genetics of these traits. In order to understand the molecular and genetic basis of these traits we need whole genome sequencing and a robust assembly of...

Genomic data from the Insectivorous bat (Myotis davidii)

G Zhang, C Cowled, Z Shi, Z Huang, KA Bishop-Lilly, X Fang, JW Wynne, Z Xiong, ML Baker, W Zhao, M Tachedjian, Y Zhu, P Zhou, X Jiang, J Ng, L Yang, L Wu, J Xiao, Y Feng, Y Chen, X Sun, Y Zhang, GA Marsh, G Crameri, CC Broder … & J Wang
The microbats constitute the suborder Microchiroptera within the order Chiroptera (bats). They are most often referred to by their scientific name. Other English names are "insectivorous bats", "echolocating bats", "small bats" or "true bats". All these names are somewhat inaccurate, because not all microbats feed on insects, and some of them are larger than small megabats. We applied a whole genome shotgun strategy and next-generation sequencing technologies using an Illumina HiSeq 2000 platform to sequence...
