The putative origin of replication in prokaryotic genomes can be located by a new method that finds short oligomers whose orientation is preferentially skewed around the origin. The skewed oligomer method is shown to work for all bacterial genomes and one of three archaeal genomes sequences to date, confirming known or predicted origins in most cases and in three cases (H. pylori, M. thermoautotrophicum, and Synechocystis sp.), suggesting origins that were previously unknown. In many cases, the… CONTINUE READING
