  • sequence
  • We also acknowledge Genome Canada for support of EST library construction and sequencing through the Protist EST Project and grant RR-009231 to EO from the National Institutes of Health (the National Center for Research Resources) which supported the RAPD and Cbs work and an EO subcontract to NSF grant MCB-0132675 which supported sequence analyses related to number of chromosomes and their copy number.

  • Boveri
  • In a series of experiments beginning in the mid-1880s, Theodor Boveri gave the definitive demonstration that chromosomes are the vectors of heredity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Aided by the rediscovery at the start of the 1900s of Gregor Mendel's earlier work, Boveri was able to point out the connection between the rules of inheritance and the behaviour of the chromosomes. (wikipedia.org)
  • genome
  • We report here the shotgun sequencing, assembly, and analysis of the MAC genome of T. thermophila , which is approximately 104 Mb in length and composed of approximately 225 chromosomes. (blogspot.com)
  • tandem
  • Tandem repeats are ubiquitous and abundant in higher eukaryotic genomes and constitute, along with transposable elements, much of DNA underlying centromeres and other heterochromatic domains. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Maize centromeres are enriched in the tandem centromeric satellite repeat CentC and centromeric retrotransposons (CR). (biomedcentral.com)
  • Alpha-satellite: tandem repeats of 171 bp for several million bp, found near centromere. (cram.com)
  • class
  • In maize, centromeric satellite repeat (CentC) and centromeric retrotransposons (CR), a class of Ty3/gypsy retrotransposons, are enriched at centromeres. (biomedcentral.com)
  • regions
  • Homologous recombination events were observed when the linearized plasmid carried short terminal regions homologous with the chromosome. (genetics.org)
  • found
  • The least number of chromosomes are found in Ascaris megalocephala i.e., 2 (\[n=2\]in Mucor hiemalis in plants ) while in a radiolarian protist ( Aulocantha ) has maximum number of chromosomes is 1600 ( Ophioglossum reticulatum , 2 n = 1262 in plants). (studyadda.com)
  • ends
  • Native chromosome ends in S.cerevisiae have a number of subtelomeric repeat elements, which vary between ends and strains. (embopress.org)
  • base
  • The chromosomes of most bacteria, which some authors prefer to call genophores, can range in size from only 130,000 base pairs in the endosymbiotic bacteria Candidatus Hodgkinia cicadicola and Candidatus Tremblaya princeps, to more than 14,000,000 base pairs in the soil-dwelling bacterium Sorangium cellulosum.
