Abstract

Heterochromatic regions are expressed in a temporal and spatial manner. One example is the Muller F element of Drosophila melanogaster. The goal of this project is to provide insights into the evolutionary impacts of changes in chromosome size. Therefore, it is necessary to have gene annotations for genes on the heterochromatic F-element and the control D-element for comparison across Drosophila species. As part of the GEP, we annotated CG7458 and Chitin synthase 2 (Chs2). This annotation will contribute to an understanding of how eukaryotic genomes help identify DNA characteristics for the regulation of genes in heterochromatic regions.
