We describe here a bizarre organization of the single large subunit (LSU) and small subunit (SSU) rRNA genes in the mitochondrial DNA of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Each gene is discontinuous, with gene pieces encoding specific rRNA domains ("modules") interspersed with one another and with intact protein coding and tRNA genes throughout a 6 kbp region… CONTINUE READING
