Insights into the key enzymes of secondary metabolites biosynthesis in Camellia sinensis

  Tea is one of the most popular beverages consumed throughout the world. It is a source of important secondary metabolites like monoterpenoids, carotenoids and catechins. Monoterpenoids and carotenoids are important constituents of tea aroma. The formation of tea aroma involves synthesis and release of volatile monoterpenoids and carotenoids. On the other hand, catechins are responsible for the beneficial...

UniDPlot: A software to detect weak similarities between two DNA sequences

  Search for DNA sequence similarity is a crucial step in many evolutionary analyses and several bioinformatic tools are available to fulfill this task. Basic local alignment search tool (BLAST) is the most commonly and highly efficient algorithm used. However, it often fails in identifying sequences showing very weak similarity. An alternative method is to use Dot Plot, but such a graphical method is not...
