I'm doing a genome annotation of a non-model annotation using Maker and have a question about repeatmasking.
My institution does not have a license to use RepBase now that it requires a paid subscription. Is there a good alternative to using RepBase for repeatmasking within Maker? I have made a custom TE library using RepeatModeler and following the instructions included in the maker wiki's Repeat Library Construction-Advanced (http://weatherby.genetics.utah.edu/MAKER/wiki/index.php/Repeat_Library_Construction-Advanced). Would this be sufficient on its own for repeatmasking or is the RepBase database really required for maker to work well?
