[…] our goal is to discount all motif pairs which likely arose from recent duplication of the whole segment including the motif pair and the spacer. consequently, sequence alignments are performed with nw-align, which is a simple and robust alignment program based on the standard needleman-wunsch algorithm [], to eliminate potential duplicated spacers. a simple ‘greedy’ algorithm is applied […]

[…] sc-ec_percentsimilaritylongest, the fraction of identical residues (percentid) or similar residues (percentsimilarity) in a global alignment (nwalign, http://zhanglab.ccmb.med.umich.edu/nw-align/) of the respective orthologs, as a function of the longest of the two (longest) or the length of the aligned region (aligned)., ec_cai, ec_cbi, ec_fop, ec_sccai, ec_sccbi, ec_scfop, […]

[…] codon of each than there are for 98.9% of pairs in the null model that we constructed, as described below. alignments were calculated using the needleman–wunsch dynamic programming protein aligner nw-align (). we made this relationship transitive by also considering two transcripts to have homologous final exons if both final exons are homologous to the final exon of some third transcript., […]

[…] using a mann–whitney test. for some manually curated orthologs and others generated from yeastmine, sequence identity was determined using nwalign (y. zhang, http://zhanglab.ccmb.med.umich.edu/nw-align)., as described, hlig1, hssrp1, hppp1ca, and hppp1cc in entry clones were shuttled into the yeast destination vectors pag416gpd-ccdb-ha (ura3) and pag415gpd-ccdb-ha (leu2) to generate […]
