[HTML][HTML] A human gut microbial gene catalog established by metagenomic sequencing

…, DR Mende, J Li, J Xu, S Li, D Li, J Cao, B Wang… - nature, 2010 - ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Abstract To understand the impact of gut microbes on human health and well-being it is
crucial to assess their genetic potential. Here we describe the Illumina-based metagenomic
sequencing, assembly and characterization of 3.3 million nonredundant microbial genes,

A draft sequence of the rice genome (Oryza sativa L. ssp. indica)

…, T Cao, J Wang, W Zhao, P Li, W Chen, X Wang… - …, 2002 - science.sciencemag.org
Abstract We have produced a draft sequence of the rice genome for the most widely
cultivated subspecies in China, Oryza sativa L. ssp. indica, by whole-genome shotgun
sequencing. The genome was 466 megabases in size, with an estimated 46,022 to 55,615

[HTML][HTML] Enterotypes of the human gut microbiome

…, S Tims, D Torrents, E Ugarte, EG Zoetendal, J Wang… - nature, 2011 - ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Abstract Our knowledge on species and function composition of the human gut microbiome
is rapidly increasing, but it is still based on very few cohorts and little is known about their
variation across the world. Combining 22 newly sequenced fecal metagenomes of

SOAP2: an improved ultrafast tool for short read alignment

…, Y Li, TW Lam, SM Yiu, K Kristiansen, J Wang - …, 2009 - academic.oup.com
Abstract Summary: SOAP2 is a significantly improved version of the short oligonucleotide
alignment program that both reduces computer memory usage and increases alignment
speed at an unprecedented rate. We used a Burrows Wheeler Transformation (BWT)

The NCEP climate forecast system reanalysis

…, S Moorthi, HL Pan, X Wu, J Wang… - Bulletin of the …, 2010 - journals.ametsoc.org
Abstract The NCEP Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) was completed for the 31-
yr period from 1979 to 2009, in January 2010. The CFSR was designed and executed as a
global, high-resolution coupled atmosphere–ocean–land surface–sea ice system to provide

Sequence and comparative analysis of the chicken genome provide unique perspectives on vertebrate evolution

…, K Skjoedt, GKS Wong, J Wang, B Liu, J Wang… - Nature, 2004 - nature.com
Abstract We present here a draft genome sequence of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus.
Because the chicken is a modern descendant of the dinosaurs and the first non-mammalian
amniote to have its genome sequenced, the draft sequence of its genome—composed of

Graphene based electrochemical sensors and biosensors: a review

Y Shao, J Wang, H Wu, J Liu, IA Aksay, Y Lin - Electroanalysis, 2010 - Wiley Online Library
Abstract Graphene, emerging as a true 2-dimensional material, has received increasing
attention due to its unique physicochemical properties (high surface area, excellent
conductivity, high mechanical strength, and ease of functionalization and mass production).

De novo assembly of human genomes with massively parallel short read sequencing

…, K Kristiansen, S Li, H Yang, J Wang, J Wang - Genome …, 2010 - genome.cshlp.org
Abstract Next-generation massively parallel DNA sequencing technologies provide ultrahigh
throughput at a substantially lower unit data cost; however, the data are very short read
length sequences, making de novo assembly extremely challenging. Here, we describe a

SOAP: short oligonucleotide alignment program

R Li, Y Li, K Kristiansen, J Wang - Bioinformatics, 2008 - academic.oup.com
Abstract Summary: We have developed a program SOAP for efficient gapped and ungapped
alignment of short oligonucleotides onto reference sequences. The program is designed to
handle the huge amounts of short reads generated by parallel sequencing using the new

A metagenome-wide association study of gut microbiota in type 2 diabetes

…, Z Li, A Tang, S Zhong, X Li, W Chen, R Xu, M Wang… - Nature, 2012 - nature.com
Assessment and characterization of gut microbiota has become a major research area in
human disease, including type 2 diabetes, the most prevalent endocrine disease worldwide.
To carry out analysis on gut microbial content in patients with type 2 diabetes, we developed
