    • Decoupling of genome size and sequence divergence in a symbiotic bacterium 

      Wernegreen, Jennifer J.; Ochman, Howard; Jones, Isaac B.; Moran, Nancy A. (American Society for Microbiology, 2000-07)
      In contrast to genome size variation in most bacterial taxa, the small genome size of Buchnera sp. was shown to be highly conserved across genetically diverse isolates (630 to 643 kb). This exceptional size conservation ...
