Type IV filaments (T4F), which are helical assemblies of type IV pilins, constitute a superfamily of filamentous nanomachines virtually ubiquitous in prokaryotes that med
Escherichia coli is mostly a commensal of birds and mammals, including humans, where it can act as an opportunistic pathogen.
Flaviviruses encompass not only medically relevant arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) but also insect-specific flaviviruses (ISFs) that are presumably maintained pri
Using a metagenomics approach, we have determined the first full-length genome sequence of a human parechovirus type 15 (HPeV15) strain, isolated from a child with acute
Processes of molecular innovation require tinkering and shifting in the function of existing genes.
Phylogeny.fr, created in 2008, has been designed to facilitate the execution of phylogenetic workflows, and is nowadays widely used.
The transfer distance (TD) was introduced in the classification framework and studied in the context of phylogenetic tree matching.
