Drosophila erecta (TSC#14021-0224.01) Assembly and Gene Annotation
About Drosophila erecta
Drosophila erecta is a West African fruitfly, 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 erecta, and a phylogeny of the 12 sequenced fruitfly species.

This is the August 2005 genome assembly of Drosophila erecta. The 10.6x whole-genome shotgun sequencing was performed and assembly provided by Agencourt Bioscience.
Repeats were annotated with the Ensembl Genomes repeat feature pipeline. There are: 207,069 Low complexity (Dust) features, covering 14 Mb (9.4% of the genome); 40,688 RepeatMasker features (with the RepBase library), covering 17 Mb (11.0% of the genome); 99,482 Tandem repeats (TRF) features, covering 15 Mb (9.6% of the genome).
Protein domains were annotated with the Ensembl Genomes protein feature pipeline.
