Discovery of numerous novel small genes in the intergenic regions of the Escherichia coli O157:H7 Sakai genome

PLoS One
PMCID: 5597208
PMID: 28902868
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0184119

[…] the novel genes without annotated homologs, respectively ().Transcription termination mediated by ρ-independent terminators [] in the region 300 bp downstream of the stop codon was investigated using FindTerm. For 20.8% of the novel genes with annotated homologs a terminator was predicted. For those without annotated homologs, the fraction was slightly lower (). […]
