The complete nucleotide sequence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome VIII reveals that it contains 269 predicted or known genes (300 base pairs or larger). Fifty-nine of these genes (22 percent) were previously identified. Of the 210 novel genes, 65 are predicted to encode proteins that are similar to other proteins of known or predicted function.(More)
Viridans group streptococci are major constituents of the normal human oral flora and are also identified as the predominant pathogenic bacteria in native valve infective endocarditis. Little information is available regarding the regulation of gene expression in viridans group streptococci, either in response to changes in the oral environment or during(More)
Telomeres are essential for genomic integrity, but little is known about their regulation in the normal human mammary gland. We now demonstrate that a phenotypically defined cell population enriched in luminal progenitors (LPs) is characterized by unusually short telomeres independently of donor age. Furthermore, we find that multiple DNA damage response(More)
Representation of subcloned Caenorhabditis elegans and human DNA sequences in both M13 and pUC sequencing vectors was determined in the context of large scale genomic sequencing. In many cases, regions of subclone under-representation correlated with the occurrence of repeat sequences, and in some cases the under-representation was orientation specific.(More)
Yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs) provide a powerful way to isolate and map large regions of genomic DNA and their use in genome analysis is now extensive. We modified a series of procedures to produce high quality shotgun libraries from small amounts of YAC DNA. Clones from several different libraries have been sequenced and analyzed for distribution,(More)
