Medicago truncatula vs Oryza sativa Japonica Group LastZ Results

Back to all analyses

Medicago truncatula (Medicago truncatula, MedtrA17_4.0) and Oryza sativa Japonica Group (Oryza sativa Japonica Group, IRGSP-1.0) were aligned using the LastZ alignment algorithm (LastZ) in Ensembl Plants release 79. Medicago truncatula 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: 147,443
