We describe the draft genome of the microcrustacean Daphnia pulex, which is only 200 megabases and contains at least 30,907 genes. The high gene count is a consequence of an elevated rate of gene duplication resulting in tandem gene clusters. More than a third of Daphnia's genes have no detectable homologs in any other available proteome, and the most(More)
C* is a data parallel programming language originally developed for the Connection Machine. EEorts are now underway to standardize a revised version of C* 6]. We think that standardization of C* is premature at this time, since the language contains a number of unproven constructs and obvious aws. We are concerned that standardization of a parallel language(More)
