In E. coli, there are only 47 different tRNAs but 61 potential anticodons. This is because, from what I understand, the third base of the anticodon can pair by wobble rules. However, it is known that ...
First, I am not a biologist, so this question might be naive: All of our information processing and storing is based on 2-level logic, bits with 0 and 1. Now, DNA stores the information in a 4-level ...
Based on my understanding from wikipedia, there is the (RNA) start codon AUG and the stop codons UAA, UGA, UAG. AUG can also encode Methionine, I'm assuming if it appears in the middle of a mRNA ...
I'm interested in a statistical tool to get bacterial codon usage at genomic level. Ideally, the tool should be flexible to analyse hundreds of bacterial genomes. I've looked in MeSH terms database ...
Looking at some more detailed codon usage tables, genes may be further clustered into three gene classes: Metabolic genes, highly expressed genes during exponential growth, and horizontal gene ...
I would like to synthesize a 3.4kb gene (originally isolated from soil bacteria) and transform it into E. coli. There are several companies (DNA2.0, GeneScript, BlueHeron) which will synthesize the ...
