The distribution of repetitive sequences, or microsatellites, formed by either one or two base pairs and longer than eight units, has been studied in almost 1 Mb of the sequenced Arabidopsis thaliana genome. Except for those formed by only G and C residues, the repetitions are more abundant in the Arabidopsis genome than can be calculated from its nucleotide composition. They are distributed in proportions higher than expected in introns, and in the intergenic regions both proximal and distal… CONTINUE READING
