Strand-specific Single-stranded DNA Sequencing (4S-seq) of E. coli genomes
Authors:  Takahiro Masuda, Nobuaki Kono, Masaru Tomita and Kazuharu Arakawa, date: 08/05/2019, view: 1175, Q&A: 0
Most bacterial genomes have biased nucleotide composition, and the asymmetry is considered to be caused by a single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) deamination arising from the bacterial replication machinery. In order to evaluate the relationship ...
