PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Comparison with the nucleotide polymorphism in the entire gene sequence or the non-coding region

Sibin Yu   (2011-03-29 10:51)  Huazhong Agricultural University email

In the Discussion section, the level of nucleotide polymorphism (pi = 0.00006) is for the non-coding region of OsAMT1;1 in O. sativa. Please note it is better to use the level of nucleotide polymorphism (pi = 0.00004) in the entire gene sequence for the comparison with that of the 111 chosen gene fragments, although both the levels lead to the same conclusion.
