Evidence for symmetric chromosomal inversions around the replication origin in bacteria
(Genome Biology, 2000-12-04)
Background: Whole-genome comparisons can provide great insight into many aspects of biology. Until recently, however, comparisons were mainly possible only between distantly related species. Complete genome sequences are ...
Macronuclear Genome Sequence of the Ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila, a Model Eukaryote
(PLoS Biology, 2006)
The ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila is a model organism for molecular and cellular biology. Like other ciliates, this species has separate germline and soma functions that are embodied by distinct nuclei within a single ...
Genomic Insights into Methanotrophy: The Complete Genome Sequence of Methylococcus capsulatus (Bath)
(PLoS Biology, 2004-10)
Methanotrophs are ubiquitous bacteria that can use the greenhouse gas methane as a sole carbon and energy source for growth, thus playing major roles in global carbon cycles, and in particular, substantially reducing ...
