The Weblogo server was used to generate a consensus HSE from the 18 predicted sites and the results exhibited that camel HSPA6 gene promoter was identical to the canonical HSE elements and the consensus sequence deduced was nTTCnnGAAnnTTCn (Fig.
However, when the number of loci included in a particular sequencing run is increased, there is a need to optimize the uniformity of coverage because the genotyping and the consensus sequence generated are only as good as the lowest point of coverage.
Consequently, there is a clear need for a NGS based HLA genotyping method and analytical pipeline that not only can generate accurate HLA genotyping information, but also generate an accurate, fully phased HLA consensus sequence for both genotyped alleles.
In order to compare the consensus sequence (~1400bp) with other sequences available on GenBank database <http://www.
The higher the depth of read coverage, the better statistical strength this consensus sequence has, as correct reads at any individual position increasingly outnumber individual read errors.
In Escherichia coli the SOS gene network is under control of the RecA protein which, as consequence of DNA damage, induces the autoproteolysis of LexA repressor which binds the 16 bp palindromic consensus sequence named LexA-binding box.
This T-cell epitope is observed in all the serological variants of DEN, with each serotype having its distinct consensus sequence for the epitope.
