    Background: DNA palindromes are a unique pattern of repeat sequences that are present in the human genome. It consists of a sequence of nucleotides in which the second half is the complement of the first half but appearing in reverse order. These palindromic sequences may have a significant role...

    The D4oop of mtDNA is a noncoding locus actively used as an individualizing marker in molecular genetic research. Uneven distribution of SNPs in the D-loop suggests that the functional load within this region is irregular. The nucleotide sequence analysis was used to evaluate the structural and...

    The initiation of replication in bacteria is regulated via the initiator protein DnaA. ATP-bound DnaA binds to multiple sequences at the origin of replication, oriG, unwinding the DNA and promoting the binding of DnaB helicase. From an Escherichia coli mutant highly perturbed for replication...
