Additional file 8: Figure S6. of Gene silencing pathways found in the green alga Volvox carteri reveal insights into evolution and origins of small RNA systems in plants

Multiple sequence alignment of V. carteri miRNAs with (A) C. reinhardtii miRNAs or (B) miRNAs of the liverwort Pellia endiviifolia. The alignment was constructed using ClustalW [43]. The color code indicates the measure of similarity between the sequences. Red indicates no or low similarity, a light yellow or white shows a high similarity. The plot on the right depicts the frequencies of similarity over the whole data set. No sequence with conservation/high similarity could be found. (PDF 1889 kb)
