Transposable elements (TEs) are conventionally identified in eukaryotic genomes by alignment to consensus element sequences. Using this approach, about half of the human genome has been previously identified as TEs and low-complexity repeats. We recently developed a highly sensitive alternative de novo strategy, P-clouds , that instead searches for clusters of high-abundance oligonucleotides that are related in sequence space (oligo ‘‘clouds’’). We show here that P-clouds predicts . 840 Mbp of…
