Genomic organization of repetitive DNAs in the cichlid fish Astronotus ocellatus

To contribute to the knowledge of fish genomes, we identified and characterized by means of nucleotide sequencing and physical chromosome mapping, three classes of repetitive DNAs in the genome of the South American cichlid fish Astronotus ocellatus. The first class corresponds to a satellite DNA family (AoSat) that shares similarity with a centromeric… CONTINUE READING
