[…] to detect highly differentiated mimetic genomic regions from the nonmimetic ones, each raw mimetic scaffold was divided into nonoverlapping 50-kb segments, and these segments were aligned to the raw platanus scaffolds of the nonmimetic (aa) individual, using blat (version 36) () with the following options: “-minidentity=70 -maxintron=50000.” from raw output of blat (psl format), […]
