    Nucleic Acids Res 32:D489-92. 2004
    ..The Alu elements are annotated with respect to coding region and exon/intron location. This design facilitates queries on Alu sequences, locations, as well as motifs and compositional properties via a one-stop search page...

    Rotem Sorek
    Department of Human Genetics and Molecular Medicine, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Ramat Aviv 69978, Israel
    Mol Cell 14:221-31. 2004
    ..Based on these findings, we identified 7810 Alus within the human genome that are prone to exonization. Mutations in these Alus may cause genetic disorders or contribute to human-specific protein diversity...

    Department of Zoology, George S Wise Faculty of Life Science, Tel Aviv University, Ramat Aviv, Israel
    Mol Biol Evol 22:496-500. 2005
    ..Finally, we show that codon volatility can increase in the absence of positive Darwinian selection; that is, increased codon volatility is not indicative of positive selection...
