Scientists present a computational method for detecting specific integration sites of endogenous retroviruses in a genome, even without the use of a reference genome. They use de novo clustering and statistical models and demonstrate the approach in a study of deer. Pippin Prep sizing was used to narrow the fragment size range to 300-330bp prior to sequencing on the Ion Personal Genome Machine.
