Abstract

The availability of next-generation sequences of transcripts from prokaryotic organisms offers the opportunity to design a new generation of automated genome annotation tools not yet available for prokaryotes. In this work, we designed EuGene-P, the first integrative prokaryotic gene finder tool which combines a variety of high-throughput data, including oriented RNA-Seq data, directly into the prediction process. This enables the automated prediction of coding sequences (CDSs), untranslated regions, transcription start sites (TSSs) and non-coding RNA (ncRNA, sense and antisense) genes. EuGene-P was used to comprehensively and accurately annotate the genome of the nitrogen-fixing bacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti strain 2011, leading to the prediction of 6308 CDSs as well as 1876 ncRNAs. Among them, 1280 appeared as antisense to a CDS, which supports recent findings that antisense transcription activity is widespread in bacteria. Moreover, 4077 TSSs upstream of protein-coding or noncoding genes were precisely mapped providing valuable data for the study of promoter regions. By looking for RpoE2-binding sites upstream of annotated TSSs, we were able to extend the S. meliloti RpoE2 regulon by similar to 3-fold. Altogether, these observations demonstrate the power of EuGene-P to produce a reliable and high-resolution automatic annotation of prokaryotic genomes.
