Distribution of genes in the genome of Arabidopsis thaliana and its implications for the genome organization of plants.

Abstract

Previous work has shown that, in the large genomes of three Gramineae [rice, maize, and barley: 415, 2,500, and 5,300 megabases (Mb), respectively] most genes are clustered in long DNA segments (collectively called the "gene space") that represent a small fraction (12-24%) of nuclear DNA, cover a very narrow (0.8-1.6%) GC range, and are separated by vast… (More)
