The volatility of the maize genome

, : The volatility of the maize genome. Maize Genetics Cooperation Newsletter ( 67): 5-6

The instability of the maize genome arises from the many tranposons that have often gone unnoticed until revealed in the presence of the right reporter allele. Examples include the quiescent Uqs (ubiquitous; controlling elements), some of which have turned out to be Ac. Other examples are chromosomal breakers such as C-I-b836024 which proved to be a fully active Ac.

Codon volatility is defined as the proportion of a codon's point-mutation neighbors that encode different amino acids. The cumulative volatility of a gene in relation to its associated genome was recently reported to be an indicator of select...

It has been suggested that codon volatility (the proportion of the point-mutation neighbors of a codon that encode different amino acids) can be used as an index of past positive selection. We compared codon volatility with patterns of synonymous...
