Comment: C: Question in reading phylogenetic trees
... Here are some concepts about evolution you can learn from your phylogenetic tree. Given that your tree is constructed from sequences that are from different species,  you can use your tree to ask which species last shared a common ancestor. In the case of mammals there is tremendous interest in k ...

Answer: A: Protein scoring matrices are described in terms of key biological issues. What
... To me it's easiest to understand the key biological issues underlying protein scoring matrices by taking a historical view. In the 1960s researchers solved the primary amino acid sequence of many hundreds of proteins and grouped them into families such as cytochromes c and globins. When you align tw ...

Answer: A: Question in reading phylogenetic trees
... Hi virus_n00b: great questions but no, your statements are not correct. Here are some suggestions on how to think about phylogenetic trees. There are nodes that are either terminal (your data sequences v1 to v11) or internal (inferred ancestral sequences; some software packages allow you to see t ...

Answer: A: Are there any monographs on tuberculosis whole genome sequencing and genomics?
... Your query about monographs on tuberculosis is excellent because each species has its own unique story to tell. Tuberculosis claims more lives than any other infectious agent and it's compelling to study that genome (in terms of e.g. host responses, resistance to treatment, evolutionary history, spe ...

Comment: C: Analyze RNA-data directly from SRA database and through Galaxy web tool
... Yes you're right, you do need to download a reference genome and you do generate a SAM file locally. But the advantage of using HISAT with NCBI-NGS toolkit is that you don't need to download reads in the FASTQ format and those are often large. So it's not quite downloading the whole thing and I beli ...

Answer: A: Analyze RNA-data directly from SRA database and through Galaxy web tool
... Here's an example of how to analyze RNA-seq data from SRA (without using Galaxy and without downloading the data!). First you need four things. Obtain an SRR accession of interest, i.e. a set of RNA-seq runs from the SRA database at NCBI. Try browsing the SRA website, then use the "Send to" pulld ...
