[…] and combined with 548 repetitive sequences from the repbase database []. the repbase sequences originated from the salmoniformes family, and excluded simple repeats (downloaded january 13, 2017). repeatmodeler v1.0.8 [] was also used together with the allpaths-lg initial assembly in a de novo approach, which identified 1,124 repetitive sequences., the repetitive sequences were then aligned […]
