The Origin and Evolution of Six Miniature Inverted Repeat Transposable Elements in Bombyx mori and Rhodnius prolixus

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 3845634
PMID: 24115603
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evt153

[…] Six nonautonomous DNA transposable elements (bm_648, Bmori_800.383, bm_701, bm_1364, bm_295 and bm_248) were obtained from BmTEdb (). Their copies were extracted with 500 bp flanking sequences using our Perl script. Then, these retrieved sequences were aligned using MUSCLE () to determine the exact boundary of these trans […]


Segmental duplications in the silkworm genome

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3735471
PMID: 23901934
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-14-521

[…] ://, version open-3.3.0), we identified the high-copy repeats. The silkworm genome is rich in TEs (~35%) []. We used our own TE dataset as repeat database ( in the running of RepeatMasker. These reference contigs were masked at 10% divergence level from TEs. After that, all these high-copy repeats were deleted out of the sequences. The resulting […]


BmTEdb: a collective database of transposable elements in the silkworm genome

PMCID: 3722987
PMID: 23886610
DOI: 10.1093/database/bat055

[…] Using the approaches above, we identified 1308 TE families in the silkworm genome and organized these families and their classification information into an easy-to-use web-based database, BmTEdb. The composition of BmTEdb can be found in . The BmTEdb web interface is organized into four functional sections, data browsing section, keywords search section, sequences analysis tools sectio […]
