@MattDMo Yeah, it was pasted from an essay/review which I wrote for next generation sequencing. I will add the references.

comment Can compounds be predicted from Polyketide synthases gene clusters?
Each module adds a two (not three) carbon extender unit to the growing polyketide chain. Pleas correct it in your text.

I would love to talk to you about this subject after my final :-) Why are you interested?

comment Recombinant protein fraction in E. coli
I also had a feeling that the protein concentration should be more uniform, especially for the same protein (GFP in this case). I also imagined it would not be lower than 40%.....

comment How are the boundaries of a gene determined?
@ghchinoy Yes, that could be interesting, but I don't think it is more complicated than I already explained to Richard. You can of course add a few more "checks" the software can do, like the length of the ORF.

comment How are the boundaries of a gene determined?
@RichardSmith They are basically looking for start codons (ATG, GTG) that define the beginning of the open reading frame (ORF), and stop codons (TAG, TAA, TGA), that define the end of the ORF, and also checks whether the number of bases between the start codon and the stop codon is devisible by 3.
