Much attention has been devoted to identifying genomic patterns underlying the evolution of the human brain and its emergent advanced cognitive capabilities, which lie at the heart of differences distinguishing humans from chimpanzees, our closest living relatives. Here, we identify two particular intragene repeat structures of noncoding human DNA, spanning(More)
Alpha satellites are tandemly repeated sequences found in all human centromeres. In addition to the functional and structural role within centromere they are also a suitable model for evolutionary studies, because of being subject to concerted evolution. The Global Repeat Map (GRM) algorithm is a convenient computational tool to determine consensus repeat(More)
For almost 50 years the conclusive explanation of Chargaff's second parity rule (CSPR), the equality of frequencies of nucleotides A=T and C=G or the equality of direct and reverse complement trinucleotides in the same DNA strand, has not been determined yet. Here, we relate CSPR to the interstrand mirror symmetry in 20 symbolic quadruplets of(More)
