[…] of the overall DIV-1 genome (38.99%), the D. magna genome (33.3%) and the D. pulex genome (40.8%); therefore, an HGT prediction based on G+C content differences was not possible.By using the software Daisy () to look for split-mapping of reads from the overall datasets of both the D. magna and DIV-1 genomes, we were additionally able to conclude that the presence of nucleotide sequence within the […]
