Analysis of two large functionally uncharacterized regions in the Methanopyrus kandleri AV19 genome
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
For most sequenced prokaryotic genomes, about a third of the protein coding genes annotated are "orphan proteins", that is, they lack homology to known proteins. These hypothetical genes are typically short and randomly scattered throughout the genome. This trend is seen for most of the bacterial and archaeal genomes published to date.
