Sample text

Viruses come in many different shapes and have wildly different lifestyles. Some have genomes made from RNA instead of DNA, and others have single-stranded rather than double-stranded genomes. 3 Genomes and Genes In general, the genomic structure of prokaryotes is very different from that of eukaryotes (Figure 2-5). Genomes are organized into chromosomes. Prokaryotes often have a single circular chromosome, and eukaryotes usually have multiple linear chromosomes. People are sometimes surprised to find that genome size and chromosome number aren't reflected in organismal complexity.

Saturated sequences can't be used to measure time, but they are still very useful because they indicate which sequences aren't under selective pressure. By inference, those that remain similar over long periods of time are under selective pressure. As a practical example, when comparing the human and puffer fish genomes, you find that most of the conserved sequence is in genes. One of the great debates of evolutionary biology is the relative importance of natural selection and neutral evolution in the formation of species.

Figure 3-3. Beginning to fill the alignment matrix The match score is the sum of the preceding diagonal cell (-1) and the mismatch score (-1), which equals -2. The horizontal gap score is the score of the cell to the left (-1) and the gap penalty (-1), which is also -2. The vertical gap score is the cell above (-2) and the gap penalty (-1), which totals -3. The maximum score is -2, but this can come from the diagonal or from the left. This is where you must make a consistent, arbitrary choice for example, always choose the diagonal over a gap.
