Dfam: annotation of transposable elements with profile HMMs

We're happy to announce the release of Dfam 1.0, a set of profile HMMs for genomic DNA annotation of transposable elements. This essentially constitutes an upgrade of repeat element annotation from using searches with single sequence consensuses to using searches with profile HMMs, now that the HMMER3 project has made DNA/DNA profile HMM searches sufficiently … Continue reading Dfam: annotation of transposable elements with profile HMMs
