161 A comparison of genomes of populations of a species living under conditions of long-term isolation provides an opportunity to estimate the role of genomic changes in speciation. This equally applies both to the coding and noncoding genomic regions; the latter is known to account for at least 90% of the genome in the majority of eukaryotes [1]. In terms of differentiating the coding and noncoding parts of genome, the phenomenon of chromatin diminution is of exceptional interest, when part of… CONTINUE READING
