However, a highly divergent sequence of DENV-1, which was isolated from a patient who had vacationed in Brunei, was recently reported (7).
Basic Local Alignment Search Tool searches to GenBank with the --650 bp of unambiguous mtCOI sequence from the two divergent sequences lacking overlapping peaks indicated these sequences had 93% identity to bases 1-542 of two m-mtCOI haplotypes from Mytella charruana reported by Alves et al.
Finally, seventeen divergent sequences, representing each of the families/taxa were selected to study the specific regions of positive vis-a-vis negative selection.
These studies revealed that highly divergent sequences were concentrated in specific regions called "hotspots." Such sequence polymorphisms have been used to derive phylogenetic relationships among species.
To remove highly divergent sequences, BLASTCLUST (http://toolkit.tuebingen.mpg.de/blastclust/) is used to cluster the BAG protein sequences in Arabidopsis (Doukhanina et al., 2006), rice (Rana et al., 2012) and maize with the lowest thresholds of coverage 50 (Percent) and identity 30 (Percent) .
The scientists plan to "match the DNA sequence of the passenger pigeon with that of its close relative, the band-tailed pigeon" and "stamp out the divergent sequences from the band-tailed pigeon genome and replace them with synthesized passenger pigeon genetic material." Critics suggest that funds could be better spent on protecting the many modern-day endangered species.
It also implies that recombination has a significant impact on the generation of diversity in HIV-1, bringing together new combinations of quite divergent sequences, and perhaps enabling evolutionary "leaps" that are not achievable by simple accumulation of substitutions.

The apparently higher levels of variation found among ORFs within genotype M is mostly caused by the comparatively divergent sequences obtained from Pteropus vampyrus (NiV/MY/BA/2010/MY; accession no.
Assay 1 (Table 1) was replaced by assay 2 (Table 2) after the characterization of additional THV strains indicated divergent sequences.
