This is mostly the case. Mammals did break theContinue reading “Bacteria breaking the rules – again. This time, its coupled transcription – translation.”

The technology has come a long way since then, both in the lab and computationally. One of the first bacterial genome sequencing projects started was one undertaken to sequence the complete EscherichiaContinue reading “Bacterial genomes, then and now”
