Aedes albopictus vs Aedes aegypti (LVP_AGWG) LastZ Results

Back to all analyses

Aedes albopictus (Aedes albopictus, AaloF1) and Aedes aegypti (LVP_AGWG) (Aedes aegypti, AaegL5) were aligned using the LastZ alignment algorithm (LastZ) in Ensembl Metazoa release . Aedes albopictus was used as the reference species. After running LastZ, the raw LastZ alignment blocks are chained according to their location in both genomes. During the final netting process, the best sub-chain is chosen in each region on the reference species.


Number of alignment blocks: 552,279
