Human vs Chicken BlastZ alignments

Human (Homo sapiens, GRCh37) and Chicken(Gallus gallus, WASHUC2) were aligned using the BlastZ alignment algorithm (Schwartz S et al., Genome Res.;13(1):103-7, Kent WJ et al., Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A., 2003;100(20):11484-9) in Ensembl release 55. Human was used as the reference species. After running BlastZ, the raw BlastZ alignment blocks are chained according to their location in both genomes. During the final netting process, the best sub-chain is chosen in each region on the reference species.
