D. mojavensis HMM results. Results for the Dscam-like HMMs built from A. mellifera, D. melanogaster and T. castaneum and run against the translated D. mojavensis genome. For a total of five 'matching' HMMs and above we found only four hits in the genome (i.e. four genes: one Dscam-hv and three Dscam-like), which had HMMs with significant hits in the correct order. The conservative cut-off value, which was subsequently used when searching other species for Dscam-like genes, is shown as a dashed line, i.e. a minimum of six HMMs had to match the sequence in the correct order and all with an e-value below 0.001.
