NOMAD_I is an internal part of retrovirus NOMAD.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
NOMAD_I is an internal part of the NOMAD endogenous retrovirus flanked by the NOMAD_LTR long terminal repeat. NOMAD was active recently since its provirus copies are flanked by identical LTRs and its ORFs does not have many false stop-codons. NOMAD generates 4 bp-long target-site duplications .

Number of matches to this model that meet the "Gathering" threshold and more stringent "Trusted" threshold. For each threshold, two numbers are shown: (1) the number of matches to this model after removing redundant hits to other models ("non-redundant"), and (2) the total number of matches above threshold, including those with better scoring matches to other models ("all hits").
The model is 6572 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 907. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
