Sauropsids form a complex group of vertebrates including squamates (lizards and snakes), turtles, crocodiles, sphenodon and birds (which are often considered as a separate class). Although avian genomes have been relatively well studied, the genomes of the other groups have remained only sparsely characterized. Moreover, the nuclear sequences available in databanks are still very limited. In the present study, we have analysed the compositional patterns, i.e. the GC (molar fraction of guanine… CONTINUE READING
