Identification of genes with fast-evolving regions in microbial genomes.


Complete sequences of multiple strains of the same microbial species provide an invaluable source for studying the evolutionary dynamics between orthologous genes over a relatively short time scale. Usually the intensity of the selection pressure is inferred from a comparison between the nonsynonymous substitution rate and the synonymous substitution rate… (More)
