The genome sequence of the genetically tractable, mesophilic, hydrogenotrophic methanogen Methanococcus maripaludis contains 1,722 protein-coding genes in a single circular chromosome of 1,661,137 bp. Of the protein-coding genes (open reading frames [ORFs]), 44% were assigned a function, 48% were conserved but had unknown or uncertain functions, and 7.5%(More)
The reference sequence for each human chromosome provides the framework for understanding genome function, variation and evolution. Here we report the finished sequence and biological annotation of human chromosome 1. Chromosome 1 is gene-dense, with 3,141 genes and 991 pseudogenes, and many coding sequences overlap. Rearrangements and mutations of(More)
An approach to restriction-site mapping and contig building that uses fragment-size data from multiple complete digests of a set of clones that oversample a genomic region is presented. Maps containing both fragment-length data and clone-end data are maintained for each restriction enzyme. Synchronization between the maps for the different enzymes is(More)
Three strains ofPenicillium chrysogenum selected for high penicillin yield and of independent lineage were marked with suitable genetical characters prior to the synthesis of several heterozygous diploids. These parental strains had domestic codes, C, D and Y. Two diploids, between differently labelled mutants of strain C and Y, produced similar amounts of(More)
Several heterozygous diploids were made between genetically labelled derivatives of two strains ofPenicillium chrysogenum which produced relatively large amounts of penicillin and were of divergent lineage. The derivatives were labelled with spore colour and nutritional mutations. The diploids, although uniform in having wild type spore colour and being(More)
