Follow up analysis of RpoB homologs

Posted by jeisen on 19 Mar 2011 at 09:25 GMT

The Unknown 2 is peripherally related to the RpoB homolog from the giant Mimivirus (data not shown) and thus may represent uncharacterized relatives of mimivirus [80].

We have carried out a follow up analysis of RpoB homologs specifically to look at relationships between the novel sequences we found and those from DNA viruses. This work has been submitted to PLoS Currents Tree of Life. The submitted preprint is available through Google Knol here:
