- Large gene overlaps in prokaryotic genomes: result of functional constraints or mispredictions?Albert Pallejà
Biochemistry and Biotechnology Department, Rovira i Virgili University, C Marcel li Domingo s n, 43007 Tarragona, Catalunya, Spain
BMC Genomics 9:335. 2008..Here we examine the longest overlaps and assess whether they are the product of special functional constraints or of erroneous annotation...

Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, Rovira i Virgili University, Tarragona, Catalunya, Spain
BMC Genomics 10:281. 2009..However they must be long enough to maintain essential regulatory signals such as the Shine-Dalgarno (SD) sequence, which is responsible of an efficient translation...
- Adaptation of the short intergenic spacers between co-directional genes to the Shine-Dalgarno motif among prokaryote genomesAlbert Pallejà
Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, Rovira i Virgili University, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain
BMC Genomics 10:537. 2009..In this paper we analyze how the presence of SD may influence the stop codon usage or the spacing lengths between co-directional genes...
