[…] the orthologs of the genes present in the extended breakpoint regions of the d. subobscura inversions in drosophila species other than d. melanogaster. orthologs were initially identified using gbrowse searches. however, the lack of annotation or misannotation of some genes in one or more of the eleven species, as well as a different relative orientation of the genes included […]

[…] be browsed online from the official website of the ganit labs, bio-it centre, institute of bioinformatics and applied biotechnology, ( using gbrowse 2.0. after the neem genome was prepared, clean reads from the a. indica libraries (y1–3) were aligned to the reference genome using tophat2 (kim et al. 2013). briefly, the mapping process […]

[…] ( as backbones. native transcription factor binding sites were identified using chip-derived data (15), either from visualizing them using the yeast genome database's gbrowse tool with the relevant track, or by searching the promoter sequences in the yetfasco database (16) for the motifs listed in table 1. when choosing binding sites to screen for or modify, […]
