5. We consider those TEs located inside genes or in the nearby gene regulatory regions to be most important. This way, TEs in our lists will be more likely to affect the nearby gene and avoid including neutral TEs. In Drosophila melanogaster, promotor and regulation regions are considered to be 1kb from the gene.
Remember that in our data file, gene distance is measured in bp and not in kb. And remember, module 2 box to transform the number and get the information you want.
How many candidate TEs do we have for the “out-of-Africa” adaptation (regions with recombination), within less than 1kb of a gene?
