Hecaton: reliably detecting copy number variation in plant genomes using short read sequencing data.

Hecaton: reliably detecting copy number variation in plant genomes using short read sequencing data.

Copy number variation (CNV) is believed to actively contribute to adaptive evolution of plant species. While many computational algorithms can be found to detect copy number variation from complete genome sequencing datasets, the everyday complexity of plant knowledge possible introduces false constructive calls.To allow dependable and complete detection of CNV in plant genomes, we developed …

Animal, Fungi, and Plant Genome Sequences Harbor Different Non-Canonical Splice Sites.

Most protein-encoding genes in eukaryotes comprise introns, that are interwoven with exons. Introns must be faraway from preliminary transcripts as a way to generate the ultimate messenger RNA (mRNA), which could be translated into an amino acid sequence. Precise excision of introns by the spliceosome requires conserved dinucleotides, which mark the splice websites. However, there …
