Abstract:

We have developed computational pipeline that compares a target genome with related genomes and find regions that have been potentially engineered. Our pipeline compares the target genome with related genomes and finds unique genes that have no homologs. These unique genes can then be tested for other criteria like DNA composition to narrow down the list of potential engineered genes.
