Paucity of novel short interspersed repetitive element (SINE) families in human DNA and isolation of a novel MER repeat.


An extensive compilation of renaturation rate data for human DNA is presented as an empirical guide for genomic hybridization studies and to document as accurately as possible the repetitive sequence content of the human genome. Approximately 15% of the genome renatures with heterogeneous rates characteristic of moderately repetitive sequences. Cross… (More)
