Drosophila mojavensis Assembly and Gene Annotation
About Drosophila mojavensis
Drosophila mojavensis is a cactophilic fruitfly from the southwestern United States and Mexico, and was one of 12 fruitfly genomes sequenced for a large comparative study . Ensembl Genomes imports data from FlyBase, who also have more information about the biology of Drosophila mojavensis, and a phylogeny of the 12 sequenced fruitfly species.

This is the August 2005 genome assembly of Drosophila mojavensis. The 8.2x whole-genome shotgun sequencing was performed and assembly provided by Agencourt Bioscience.
Repeats were annotated with the Ensembl Genomes repeat feature pipeline. There are: 462,080 Low complexity (Dust) features, covering 35 Mb (18.0% of the genome); 90,970 RepeatMasker features (with the RepBase library), covering 26 Mb (13.6% of the genome); 303,230 Tandem repeats (TRF) features, covering 25 Mb (12.8% of the genome).
Protein domains were annotated with the Ensembl Genomes protein feature pipeline.
