Chapt er 14, page 13 Chapt er 14 Highlights: I. The Eukaryotic Genome A. The eukaryotic genome is larger and more complex than the prokaryotic genome B. The yeast genome adds some eukaryotic functions to a prokaryotic model C. The nematode genome adds developmental complexity D. The fruit fly genome has surprisingly few genes E. The puffer fish is a vertebrate with a compact genome F. The rice genome reflects that of a model plant, Arabidopsis II. Repetitive Sequences in the Eukaryotic Genome A. Highly repetitive sequences are present in large numbers of copies B. Some moderately repetitive sequences are transcribed C. Transposons move about the genome III. The Structures of Protein-Coding Genes A. Protein-coding genes contain noncoding internal and flanking sequences B. Many eukaryotic genes are members of gene families
