GEM is a new family of repetitive sequences detected in the D. subobscura genome. Two of the four described GEM elements encompass a heterogeneous central module, with no detectable ORF, flanked by two long inverted repeats. These elements are composed of a set of repetitive modules, which are inverted repeat (IR), direct repeat (DR), palindromic sequence (PS), long sequence (LS) and short sequence (SS). These five modules can be found either clustered or dispersed as single modules in the D… CONTINUE READING
