New Mauve tutorial!

Want to learn how to align genomes and use Mauve? A new tutorial is now available on and can be found here. We have also added lists of orthologous genes for various species of Bordetella that were created with Mauve following this tutorial. Check them out on the Tools page!



How to use Mauve to align genomes and identify orthologs? ordetella species encode on their genomes multiple copies of insertion sequences (IS) elements. In species such as Bordetella pertussis, identical repeats of IS481 can be present in over 200 times and comprise over 6% of the total genome. These sequences provide sites for homologous recombination which are […]
