- We identified a large number of genomic elements that superficially reassemble CRISPRs but don’t contain diverse spacers and have no companion cas loci. We called these elements false-CRISPRs and further classified them into groups (including tandem repeats and STAR-like elements).
- A FASTA file contains repeats of the false-CRISPRs (download)
- A FASTA file contains the "arrays" of false-CRISPRs (download)
Annotations of the false-CRISPRs are shown in the sequence headers.
Below shows a typical CRISPR and other genomic elements that superficially reassemble the CRISPR’s repeat-spacer structure.
