This track shows regions detected as putative genomic duplications within the
golden path. The following display conventions are used to distinguish
levels of similarity:
For a region to be included in the track, at least 1 Kb of the total
sequence (containing at least 500 bp of non-RepeatMasked sequence) had to
align and a sequence identity of at least 90% was required.
Light to dark gray: 90 - 98% similarity
Light to dark yellow: 98 - 99% similarity
Light to dark orange: greater than 99% similarity
Red: duplications of greater than 98% similarity that lack sufficient
Segmental Duplication Database evidence (most likely missed overlaps)
Segmental duplications play an important role in both genomic disease
and gene evolution. This track displays an analysis of the global
organization of these long-range segments of identity in genomic sequence.
Large recent duplications (>= 1 kb and >= 90% identity) were detected
by identifying high-copy repeats, removing these repeats from the genomic
sequence ("fuguization") and searching all sequence for similarity. The
repeats were then reinserted into the pairwise alignments, the ends of
alignments trimmed, and global alignments were generated.
For a full description of the "fuguization" detection method, see Bailey
et al., 2001. This method has become
known as WGAC (whole-genome assembly comparison); for example, see Bailey
et al., 2002.
