Assessing the impact of comparative genomic sequence data on the functional annotation of the Drosophila genome
Genome Biology 2002, 3:research0086-0086.20 (30 December 2002)
Analysis of conservation in eight genomic regions (
apterous, even-skipped, fushi tarazu, twist, and Rhodopsins 1, 2, 3 and 4) from four Drosophila species ( D. erecta, D. pseudoobscura, D. willistoni, and D. littoralis) covering more than 500 kb of the D. melanogaster genome. All D. melanogaster genes (and 78-82% of coding exons) identified in divergent species such as D. pseudoobscura show evidence of functional constraint. Addition of a third species can reveal functional constraint in otherwise non-significant pairwise exon comparisons.
The transposable elements of the Drosophila melanogaster euchromatin: a genomics perspective
Genome Biology 2002, 3:research0084-0084.20 (23 December 2002)
Using Release 3 of the euchromatic genomic sequence of
Drosophila melanogaster, 85 known and eight novel families of transposable element have been identified, varying in copy number from one to 146. A total of 1,572 full and partial transposable elements were identified, comprising 3.86% of the sequence.
A Drosophila full-length cDNA resource
Genome Biology 2002, 3:research0080-0080.8 (23 December 2002)
High-quality full-insert sequence for 8,921 putative full-length cDNA clones in the
Drosophila Gene Collection has been generated and compared to the annotated Release 3 genomic sequence. More than 5,300 cDNAs have been identifieed that contain a complete and accurate protein-coding sequence, corresponding to at least one splice form for 40% of the predicted D. melanogaster genes.

Comparative genomics of Arabidopsis and maize: prospects and limitations
Genome Biology 2002, 3:reviews1005-reviews1005.6 (14 February 2002)
Arabidopsis genome seems to be of limited value as a model for maize genomics. In addition to the expansion of repetitive sequences in maize and the lack of genomic micro-colinearity, maize-specific or highly-diverged proteins contribute to a predicted maize proteome of about 50,000 proteins, twice the size of that of Arabidopsis.
