RetroSeq

RetroSeq is for detecting non-reference TE insertions from Illumina paired-end whole-genome sequencing data.

Transposable elements were first discovered in maize by Barbara McClintock in the early 20th century and have since been found in almost every organism. A significant proportion of eukaryote genomes consist of transposable element (TE)-derived sequence. These elements are known to have the capacity to modulate gene function and genome evolution. We have developed RetroSeq for detecting non-reference TE insertions from Illumina paired-end whole-genome sequencing data.
