Date: Aug 11, 2014. Haruo Suzuki: Microbial genome analysis using the G-language system

Haruo Suzuki is an Associate Professor at Yamaguchi University, Japan. You can find his publications here.

He will talk about research on GC skew (predicting the origin and terminus of DNA replication), codon usage (predicting highly expressed or horizontally transferred genes), and dinucleotide composition (classifying DNA sequences and predicting plasmid hosts), followed by an introduction of the data sources (NCBI Genbank and FASTA files) and a hands-on demo of G-language Web services.

The Web services provide URL-based access to all functions of G-language Genome Analysis Environment. For example, information for Staphylococcus aureus N315 genome (NC_002745) is given by, information for tst gene is shown by, and GC skew is computed by Please bring your smart phone, tablet or laptop to follow the demonstration.
