There is something about TEs

Posted by & filed under Cgigas DNA Methylation.

For purposes of proposaling and reports, I have gone back to look at a small project done in collaboration with scientist at IFREMER looking at pesticide exposure on oyster larvae methylation. The control library had limited yield so the number of loci with data from the treated and the control library was restricted. However using… Read more »

Differentially methylated loci – repeats or TEs

Posted by & filed under Cgigas DNA Methylation.

In our original effort (bioRxiv doi:¬†http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/012831) we characterized DMLs in relationship to genomic regions, including putative transposable elements. In this case TEs were defined as tandem repeats and targets that had sequence similarity to protein sequences in other species. Transposable elements were identified using RepeatMasker, a program that screens and annotates interspersed repeats (Smit et… Read more »
