File zebunc.ref contains 958 unfinished consensus sequences of
unclassified repeats extracted from the library at http://www.genetics.wustl.edu/fish_lab/repeats/Dr.repeats.020501.
This library contains consensus sequences of 1225 repeats.
Repeats Dr000001-Dr000409 were identified by Zhirong Bao using Recon
repeat identification software. This identifies the majority of repeats
present more than 400 times in zebrafish genome.
Repeats Dr000410-Dr001225 were identified by Rick Waterman (Johnson lab,
WashU) as individual examples of repeats (through BLAST analysis of a 2%
sample of zebrafish genome against the entire zebrafish WGS database
(~4,000,000 traces, data from spring 2002), and includes most repeats
present greater than 50 times in the genome.
We have replaced 267 repeats present in the library
by a set of consensus sequences of classified transposable elements
that are reported in Repbase Update and Repbase Reports.
File ZRU.map shows relationships between the replaced unclassified elements
and the corresponding elements deposited in Repbase.
