Trinity partitions the sequence data into many individual de Bruijn graphs, each representing the transcriptional complexity at a given gene or locus, and then processes each graph independently to extract full-length splicing isoforms and to tease apart transcripts derived from paralogous genes.
Interactions between miRNAs and complementary sequences on genes and pseudogenes that share sequence homology are thought to be a back channel of communication regulating expression levels between paralogous genes.
Due to an evolutionary conservation of the BAG domain, putative orthologous and/or paralogous genes have been identified using homologous analysis in yeast, animals and plants (Takayama et al.
The normal patterning of lumbar and sacral vertebrae as well as the changes in the axial pattern, such as lumbosacral transitional vertebra, results from mutations in the HOX- 10 and HOX-11 paralogous genes.
