The Genome of Dictyostelium discoideum.

  author={Adam Kuspa and William F. Loomis},
  journal={Methods in molecular biology},
The Dictyostelium discoideum genome has been sequenced, assembled and annotated to a high degree of reliability. The parts-list of proteins and RNA encoded by the six chromosomes can now be accessed and analyzed. One of the initial surprises was the remarkably large number of genes that are shared with plants, animals, and fungi that must have been present in their common progenitor over a billion years ago. The genome encodes a total of about 10,300 proteins including protein families involved… CONTINUE READING
