[…] set of alu elements was aligned to the aluy consensus sequence [] using cross_match (; last accessed december 2017). the data set was then analyzed via coseg (; last accessed november 2017) to determine subfamilies. the middle a-rich region of the aluy consensus sequence was omitted while tri and di segregating […]

[…] and hence can be applied to re families of any genome., the first step toward understanding re activity is to identify the re subfamilies. a commonly used method for subfamily identification, coseg (), is based on multiple sequence alignments (msas) of a cohort of res being analyzed. a recent method, based on msas as well, goes on to infer the ancestry relations within a family of res […]

[…] a total of 119 hits corresponding to svas lacking the 5’ part of the sine-r were easily identifiable and analyzed separately. the remaining 1009 sequences were subjected to subfamily analysis using coseg [] with default settings., vntr analysis was performed for five to twenty elements per subfamily, depending on subfamily size. in case of the younger subfamilies svapa_7 to svapa_11 5’ […]

[…] 90% of the identified consensus were extracted, limiting ourselves to 15,000 hits from the genome drafts. the extracted sequences were combined into a single set of ves insertions and analyzed using coseg [,] after aligning them to the ves4_ml consensus sequence. a custom perl script provided by r. hubley was used to refine the consensus sequence for each ves subfamily and is available upon […]
