There are four evolutionarily conserved binding sites which can be found in the promoter region of UPR related genes, known as: ER stress response element (ERSE, consensus sequence: CCAAT-N9-CCACG), UPR element (UPRE, consensus sequence: TGACGTGG/A), ERSEII (consensus sequence: ATTGG-Nl-CCACGT), and UPREII (consensus sequence ATTGGTCCGCGT).
We aligned published genomes of nonsylvatic DENV-2 and used them to generate a 90% consensus sequence that formed the target for primer design.
The analysis of the E1 envelope glycoprotein gene identified variations at 4 nucleotides positions, compared to the to the consensus sequence from the Americas (Figure 3).
1), evidenced by the fact that only 26 of the 130 individuals studied showed nucleotide changes from the consensus sequence (Table II).

Cloning of aDNA products is essential because it allows different individual sequences, rather than a consensus sequence, to be obtained.
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.
The Chr 1 consensus sequence for each strain was constructed using the SAMtools consensus parameters.
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.
