Segmental duplications in the silkworm genome

Abstract

Segmental duplications (SDs) or low-copy repeats play important roles in both gene and genome evolution. SDs have been extensively investigated in many organisms, however, there is no information about SDs in the silkworm, Bombyx mori. In this study, we identified and annotated the SDs in the silkworm genome. Our results suggested that SDs constitute ~1.4… (More)
