  1. The inversion distance, that is the distance between two unichromosomal genomes with the same content allowing only inversions of DNA segments, can be computed thanks to a pioneering approach of Hannenhalli an...

    Authors: Eyla Willing, Simone Zaccaria, Marília DV Braga and Jens Stoye
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S3
  2. Models of ancestral gene order reconstruction have progressively integrated different evolutionary patterns and processes such as unequal gene content, gene duplications, and implicitly sequence evolution via ...

    Authors: Murray Patterson, Gergely Szöllősi, Vincent Daubin and Eric Tannier
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S4
  3. Reconciled gene trees yield orthology and paralogy relationships between genes. This information may however contradict other information on orthology and paralogy provided by other footprints of evolution, su...

    Authors: Manuel Lafond, Magali Semeria, Krister M Swenson, Eric Tannier and Nadia El-Mabrouk
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S5
  4. We pose the problem of dissecting an ancient polyploid genome into its constituent subgenomes despite fragmentation and noise caused by genome rearrangements and fractionation of multi-copy genes. We formulate...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S8
  5. Gene duplication is considered to be a major driving force in evolution that enables the genome of a species to acquire new functions. A reconciliation - a mapping of gene tree vertices to the edges or vertice...

    Authors: Owais Mahmudi, Joel Sjöstrand, Bengt Sennblad and Jens Lagergren
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S10
  6. Comparative genomics has revealed that some species have exceptional genomes, compared to their closest relatives. For instance, some species have undergone a strong reduction of their genome with a drastic re...

    Authors: Bérénice Batut, David P Parsons, Stephan Fischer, Guillaume Beslon and Carole Knibbe
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S11
  7. Clustering sequences into families has long been an important step in characterization of genes and proteins. There are many algorithms developed for this purpose, most of which are based on either direct simi...

    Authors: Raja Hashim Ali, Sayyed Auwn Muhammad, Mehmood Alam Khan and Lars Arvestad
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S12
  8. Variation calling is the process of detecting differences between donor and consensus DNA via high-throughput sequencing read mapping. When evaluating the performance of different variation calling methods, a ...

    Authors: Veli Mäkinen and Jani Rahkola
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S13
  9. Using Next Generation Sequencing, SNP discovery is relatively easy on diploid species and still hampered in polyploid species by the confusion due to homeology. We develop HomeoSplitter; a fast and effective s...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S15
  10. Among challenges that hamper reaping the benefits of genome assembly are both unfinished assemblies and the ensuing experimental costs. First, numerous software solutions for genome de novo assembly are available...

    Authors: Hayssam Soueidan, Florence Maurier, Alexis Groppi, Pascal Sirand-Pugnet, Florence Tardy, Christine Citti, Virginie Dupuy and Macha Nikolski
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S16
  11. Viruses that infect bacteria, called phages, are well-known for their extreme mosaicism, in which an individual genome shares many different parts with many others. The mechanisms for creating these mosaics are l...

    Authors: Krister M Swenson, Paul Guertin, Hugo Deschênes and Anne Bergeron
    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S17
  12. We study the problem of mapping proteins between two protein families in the presence of paralogs. This problem occurs as a difficult subproblem in coevolution-based computational approaches for protein-protei...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S18
  13. To understand the particular evolutionary patterns of plant genomes, there is a need to systematically survey the fate of the subgenomes of polyploids fixed as whole genome duplicates, including patterns of re...

    Citation: BMC Bioinformatics 2013 14(Suppl 15):S19
  14. Genes occurring co-localized in multiple genomes can be strong indicators for either functional constraints on the genome organization or remnant ancestral gene order. The computational detection of these patt...
