SNP density (number of SNPs per unit physical length) was chosen as an indirect metric for the degree of sequence conservation. SNP density was calculated for lncRNAs, PCGs, and random genome regions.
Sequence conservation can only be observed in lectin genes from plants of same species as Allium sp.
stramonium followed by insertion of 9 bp in all Solanum species indicating stronger sequence conservation at genus level.
These algorithms primarily look for sequence conservation across evolution or other attributes that a variant might be important for gene function.
Since, genetic conservation of CHIK V is being maintained only between human and peridomestic mosquitoes, a high degree of sequence conservation is observed within several other group of alphaviruses, e.g., North American Eastern equine encephalitis virus (13,14), Highlands J virus from North America (15), Western equine encephalitis virus (16) and Sindbis virus (17).

This level of sequence conservation translates into similar protein structure, but distinct biochemical activities.
Modest sequence conservation within gene 1 has enabled the design of oligonucleotide primers for use in diagnostic reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reactions, which will be useful for the detection of new coronaviruses.
IMG 1.2 also features enhanced comparative analysis capabilities, including VISTA exploration of sequence conservation for selected organisms and KEGG pathway and COG category profiles across all organisms.
As indicated in Table 1, sequence conservation was high among all of the soybean omega-3 fatty-acid desaturase sequences at the DNA level as well, with the highest identity reaching 94% while the least conserved still contained 68% identical DNA sequences.
The spacing, orientation, and sequence conservation of these putative regulatory elements suggest that they may be functionally involved in the hypoxic regulation of Ldh-B in these fish.
These projects revealed a surprising level of sequence conservation to the human.
