A full repertoire of octapeptides which are present in at least 30 bacterial proteomes of total 131 currently available is computationally derived and filtered. An original search technique is used that, in terms of computational time and memory, is similar to the Suffix tree method. The presence of a given sequence in a large number of proteomes qualifies it as a conserved sequence. The larger the number of proteomes where it is found, the higher is the conservation. The concept of… CONTINUE READING
