Gene families • E. Gene organization in yeast • F. The human genome ← Dystrophin has >65 introns ← Titin 312 intron ← ← Number of introns depends on species. ← How big are introns and extrons? <50bp to ~10kb • introns 14bp, some are greater than 50kilobases o one is 740kb pairs long • Some genes are < 1kb. Some are 100kb o one of the largest genes is dystrophin is 2500kb o Typical size of a human gene is 30kb. • Postitions of introns in genes is conserved throughout evolution.Length of introns ansd sequence varies, but the position is well conserved. • Introns are removed by a splicer, which is an enzymatic machinery. ← What is the point of introns?...
