[…] order to see their target preference or specificity. target preference for microsatellites was determined manually. target preference for multicopy genes or transposons was determined by performing censor () against repbase. if a certain type of sequence is seen in more than 20% of the flanking sequences of a certain non-ltr retrotransposon family, this family is considered target specific., […]

[…] 5000 bp of the contig sequence from lr-pcr was analyzed to identify two breakpoints of the gross deletion with blat using the ucsc genome browser. the known repetitive elements were evaluated by censor at the 300 nucleotide sequence flanking each breakpoint using the february 2009 human reference sequence (grch37/hg19) ()., the proband was the first child born to healthy, non-consanguineous […]
