RepeatMasker-Amborella RepeatScout

These data are a results from a RepeatMasker search against the Amborella RepeatScout Database. This database was genearate using the RepeatScout de novo identification program to search the assembled Amborella genome (AmTr_v_0.10). This program identifies high-copy-number repeats in assembled genomes. Repeat names are designated by prefix representing the assigned taxonomy of the element as discussed in Wicker et al 2007. The R=num suffix is a unique identifier for that element assigned by RepetaScout.

Prefix Identification:
RLC = Copia LTR Retrotransposon.
RLG = Gypsy LTR Retrotransposon.
RLX = Unknown LTR Retrotransposon
RLEPRV = Endogenous Pararetroviruses
RIL = L1 LINE Retrotransposon
DTA = hAT DNA Transposons
DTM = Mutator DNA Transposons
DTH = PIF-Harbinger DNA Transposons
DTC = CACTA DNA Transposons.

THESE TAXONOMIC ASSIGNMENTS ARE PRELIMINARY AND ARE BASED ON SIMILARITY OF THE HIGH COPY NUMBER SEQUENCES TO A DATABASE OF KNOWN TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS AND AND NOT BASED ON A DATABASE OF AB INITIO ANNOTATED FULL LENGTH TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS.
