Prototypic sequences for human repetitive DNA

  • Published:
Journal of Molecular Evolution Aims and scope Submit manuscript

Summary

We report a collection of 53 prototypic sequences representing known families of repetitive elements from the human genome. The prototypic sequences are either consensus sequences or selected examples of repetitive sequences. The collection includes: prototypes for high and medium reiteration frequency interspersed repeats, long terminal repeats of endogenous retroviruses, alphoid repeats, telomere-associated repeats, and some miscellaneous repeats. The collection is annotated and available electronically.[/ap ]
