Abstract

Tandem genetic duplications of various lengths occur at high frequency and at many chromosomal locations in bacteria. Most duplications are formed and lost by recombinational mechanisms. Since they readily give rise to haploid segregants, duplications are characteristically unstable. Va...read more
