Genome wide survey, discovery and evolution of repetitive elements in three Entamoeba species.
BMC genomics. 2008-12-10; 9.595.
Identification and mapping of repetitive elements is a key step for accurate gene prediction and overall structural annotation of genomes. During the assembly and annotation of three highly repetitive amoeba genomes, Entamoeba histolytica, Entamoeba dispar, and Entamoeba invadens, we performed comparative sequence analysis to identify and map all class I and class II transposable elements in their sequences.
