Quick question on genes - thanks!

Thank you! So, is this right - a particular sequence of contiguous coding triplet-bases (allowing for interspersed introns) that constitutes one 'end-to-end' gene (and therefore one 'end-to-end' polypeptide chain), can also be 'reassembled' in a different ...

Quick question on genes - thanks!

Hi Can I just check a couple of points please? (1) Genes are long sequences of (coding) triplet-bases. Are those triplet-bases (a) always contiguous (allowing for non-coding introns interspersed along the sequence)? Is there therefore always a point on the DNA strand that is the start of the ...

Determining gene order of cotransfers?

... are more likely to be transferred together than genes which are further apart? What's the closest together that genes can ever be? Are they ever contiguous (allowing for initiation/stop codons etc)? (Sorry to ask a basic question - I'm still getting my head round all this gene mullarky!)(it's ...

Recombination in RNA viruses,Ruzic,Kovac

... A second process, recombination, can occur ineither segmented or unsegmented viruses when `donor'nucleotide sequence is introduced into a single, contiguous ` acceptor ' RNA molecule to produce a new RNA containing genetic information from more than one source. In this paper we focus on this type ...

Re:

... removing a single layer of membrane and then having a special term for everything else (including all of those internal membranes which can be contiguous with both the nuclear membrane and cell membrane) seems rather senseless to me. Just call the whole thing a cell and be done with it. ;)
