Application of the Neutral Indel Model to genome sequences for diverse metazoans

Abstract:

The Neutral Indel Model is able to predict accurately the distribution of indel events in alignments of neutrally evolving genomic sequence. Here, I apply this model to a diverse range of metazoan species pairs, to a number of ends. First, I apply the Neutral Indel Model to alignments of genome sequences for species within the mammalian clade in order to estimate the quantities of functional DNA shared between species pairs. I demonstrate that as the evolutionary divergence between species pa...
