Chargaff' s second parity rule (PR2) states that complementary nucleotides are met with almost equal frequencies in single stranded DNA. This is indeed the case for all bacterial and eukaryotic genomes studied, although the genomic patterns may differ among genomes in terms of local deviations. The behaviour of organellar genomes regarding the second parity rule has not been studied in detail up to now. We tested all available organellar genomes and found that a large number of mitochondrial… CONTINUE READING
