Abstract

Since 2006, numerous cases of bacterial symbionts with extraordinarily small genomes have been reported. These organisms represent independent lineages from diverse bacterial groups. They have diminutive gene sets that rival some mitochondria and chloroplasts in terms of gene numbers an...read more

Chromosomal Deletion

Chromosomal deletion includes the loss of a gene sequence of DNA. The location and the genes deleted determines the significance of this abnormality. There are many identified genetic disorders that are a result from chromosomal deletion including cri du chat and Prader-Willi syndrome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal deletions here.
