Bioinformatics Analysis Guides to LTR Retrotransposon-Derived Extrachromosomal Linear DNAs Identified by ALE-seq

Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology book series (MIMB,volume 2250)

Abstract

ALE-seq is a method devised to identify pre-integration intermediates of LTR retrotransposons called extrachromosomal linear DNA, which can be used to predict retrotransposition activity. We describe here a bioinformatic methodology to process reads obtained from the ALE-seq protocol for the effective annotation of novel and active retroelements.

Key words

  • LTR retrotransposon
  • Extrachromosomal DNA
  • ALE-seq
