Science of the total environment [online], 796, article number 148977. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2021.148977

Cost-effective, efficient, and sustainable water treatment solutions utilising existing materials and technology will make it easier for low and middle-income countries to adopt them, improving public health. The ability of biochar to mediate and sup... Read More about New directions and challenges in engineering biologically-enhanced biochar for biological water treatment..

Ranking microbial metabolomic and genomic links in the NPLinker framework using complementary scoring functions. [Dataset] (2021)
Dataset
ELDJÁRN, G.H., RAMSAY, A., VAN DER HOOFT, J.J.J., DUNCAN, K.R., SOLDATOU, S., ROUSU, J., DALY, J., WANDY, J. and ROGERS, S. 2021. Ranking microbial metabolomic and genomic links in the NPLinker framework using complementary scoring functions. [Dataset]. PLOS computational biology [online], 17(5), e1008920. Available from: https://journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/article?id=10.1371/journal.pcbi.1008920#sec021

In this article, we introduce NPLinker, a software framework to link genomic and metabolomic data, to link microbial secondary metabolites to their producing genomic regions. Two of the major approaches for such linking are analysis of the correlatio...
