lindheimeri revealed that the 15 base-pair
deletion is homozygous.
Blue Heron announced today that they were the primary supplier of synthetic DNA to the Venter Institute in their creation of the 582,970 base-pair
genome of the bacterium Mycoplasma genitalium, published online today in the journal Science.
The researchers found that, contrary to current belief, the transition between the secondary and tertiary structures involves rearrangement of some base-pair
bonds, not just bonding by the unmatched bases.
The DNA portion recognizes the base-pair
sequence of the target RNA, and the RNA part breaks the sequence apart, explains John J.
arrangement of these sections varies so much among individuals that even close relatives can be distinguished with this technique.
