Protein carbon content evolves in response to carbon availability and may influence the fate of duplicated genes.


Natural selection can influence even the lowest level of biological organization, the atomic composition of biological macromolecules. In analysing genome-scale gene expression data, we find that ancestral yeast strains preferentially express proteins with low carbon content during carbon limitation, relative to strains selected in the laboratory under… (More)
