  • Recently, attention has been drawn to eukaryotic genomes with very few introns ( [1][1], [2][2] ) and to the biased position of introns within genes ( [3][3] ). We show here that intron-poor eukaryotes for which genome data is available have a 5′ bias in the position of their introns within genes
