Where did vertebrate genes come from? Here we address this question by analyzing eight completely sequenced land vertebrate genomes and six completely sequenced invertebrate genomes. Approximately 70% of the vertebrate genes can be found in the six invertebrate genomes with the standard homology search criteria (denoted as V.MCL), another approximately 6% can be found with relaxed search criteria, and an additional approximately 2% can be found in sequenced fungal and bacterial genomes. Thus, a… CONTINUE READING

Surprisingly , in many cases the family sizes in V.MCL are only as large as or even smaller than their counterparts in the invertebrates , contrary to the general perception of a larger family size in vertebrates .
