• Ab initio Gene Identification in Metagenomic Sequences 

      Zhu, Wenhan; Lomsadze, Alexandre; Borodovsky, Mark (Georgia Institute of TechnologyOxford University Press, 2010)
      We describe an algorithm for gene identification in DNA sequences derived from shotgun sequencing of microbial communities. Accurate ab initio gene prediction in a short nucleotide sequence of anonymous origin is hampered ...
    • Bacillus anthracis genome organization in light of whole transcriptome sequencing 

      Martin, Jeffrey; Zhu, Wenhan; Passalacqua, Karla D.; Bergman, Nicholas; Borodovsky, Mark (Georgia Institute of TechnologyBioMed Central, 2010)
      Emerging knowledge of whole prokaryotic transcriptomes could validate a number of theoretical concepts introduced in the early days of genomics. What are the rules connecting gene expression levels with sequence determinants ...
    • Collective decision making in bacterial viruses 

      Weitz, Joshua S.; Mileyko, Yuriy; Joh, Richard I.; Voit, Eberhard O. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyBiophysical Society, 2008-09)
      For many bacterial viruses, the choice of whether to kill host cells or enter a latent state depends on the multiplicity of coinfection. Here, we present a mathematical theory of how bacterial viruses can make collective ...
