Detailed overview:
Title: Dfam
Creator: Wheeler, Travis J.; et al.
Abstract: The Dfam database is a collection of Repetitive DNA element sequence alignments, hidden Markov models (HMMs) and matches lists for complete Eukaryote genomes. Transposable elements (or interspersed repeats) account for a substantial portion of eukaryotic genomes. Accurate annotation of TEs enables research into their biology and can shed light on the evolutionary processes that shape genomes. Dfam represents a collection of alignments and HMMs of such transposable elements and other repetitive DNA elements. The Dfam website gives information about each model, and provides genome annotations for a collection of core genomes. The models may also be downloaded from the ftp site, for example to mask repeats in new genomes. [Information of the supplier]
