We used the Bio Edit program (Hall, 1999) to determine the consensus sequences
which were subsequently analyzed by BLAST to confirm the genetic similarity to Rickettsia species.
Voucher sequences from GenBank, reference sequences from BOLD (Altschul et al., 1990) databases and consensus sequences
of each species generated from this study were compared and aligned using the CLUSTALW software on MegAlign Pro (DNASTAR Inc., Madison, WI).
HCV NS5A and NS5B consensus sequences
obtained from Uruguayan patients were aligned with sequences from HCV representing all genotypes and main subtypes isolated in different geographic regions of the world.
DNA sequences were edited, and consensus sequences
were obtained using the Bioedit software package.
Recently it was confirmed that consensus sequences
forming stable G-quadruplex structures are responsible for RNA replication and inhibition of protein translation of hepatitis C virus .
These HSE sites were dispersed in the isolated region and had consensus sequences
identical to those found in eukaryotes.
Generation of full-length class I human leukocyte antigen gene consensus sequences
for novel allele character ization [published online ahead of print September 27, 2016].
Briefly, consensus sequences
from the WSB, PWK, and CAST strains were mapped to the alignment and gaps filled with Ns.
According to a previous report, CIAV binding factors and consensus sequences
of the binding sites  in different hosts were searched and noted (Table 3).
Fully phased consensus sequences
were generated for each allele and exported from Twin[TM] in FASTA format.
were identified and alignment of sequences was done using Geneious software (Auckland, New Zealand).
