The genomes of three crocodilians provide insight into archosaur evolution

To provide context for the diversification of archosaurs—the group that includes crocodilians, dinosaurs, and birds—we generated draft genomes of three crocodilians: Alligator mississippiensis (the American alligator), Crocodylus porosus (the saltwater crocodile), and Gavialis gangeticus (the Indian gharial). We observed an exceptionally slow rate of genome …

A cactus graph

Cactus Graphs for Genome Comparisons. Proceedings of RECOMB 2010

We introduce a data structure, analysis and visualization scheme called a cactus graph for comparing sets of related genomes Cactus graphs capture some of the advantages of de Bruijn and breakpoint graphs in one unified framework They naturally decompose the common substructures in a set …
