Genes are, as you'd expect, genetically defined as regions of the chromosome with some genetic role. Between genes, we have, well, junk, spam, without meaning or significance, since otherwise, it would be a gene. In the 1990s ...

Others include: promoters regulatory binding sites terminators introns aptamers poly-A sequences ribosome entry sites There's a lot of stuff that's part of genes besides the protein coding sequence. A good way to get a picture of the sorts of things there are besides coding regions is ...

Obviously, there won't be a single number for this. The phenomenon is fairly well understood in yeast. Unfortunately, most studies tend to focus on the rate of formation of specific well-understood rearrangements, and then use that as a baseline. I am having trouble finding a measurement of overall rearrangement rate, although the system is ideal for this. ...
