Arabidopsis thaliana vs Sorghum bicolor BlastZ Results

Back to all analyses

Arabidopsis thaliana (Arabidopsis thaliana, TAIR10) and Sorghum bicolor (Sorghum bicolor, Sorbi1) were aligned using the BlastZ alignment algorithm ( Schwartz S et al., Genome Res.;13(1):103-7, Kent WJ et al., Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A., 2003;100(20):11484-9 ) in Ensembl Plants release 76. Arabidopsis thaliana was used as the reference species. After running BlastZ, the raw BlastZ alignment blocks are chained according to their location in both genomes. During the final netting process, the best sub-chain is chosen in each region on the reference species.
