I am trying to get some information about the degree of homology/similarity between the human and mouse genome (whole genome, not sequence by sequence). In particular, I would like to get this information about: homology at the nucleotide level (whole genome and exome) - homology at the coded aminoacid level (exome). ×Close.

By picking one newly discovered gene from each pair of chromosomes and telling its story, Matt Ridley recounts the history of our species and its ancestors from the dawn of life to the brink of future medicine.

Genes with similar sequences in two different species of organisms, such as humans and mice The C terminus sequence of the AP3 protein is conserved among the ancestral flowering plants.

We showed 11 genes that were close to HCRTR gene family and it could be seen that genes around HCRTR2 were more conserved. Except for HCRTR2 of fishes and birds who lost one flanking gene, all 11 flanking genes were detected in other vertebrates. As for HCRTR1, mammals kept 6 flanking genes and 4 of them changed gene direction compared to Zhen Cai, Zhen Cai, Hehe Liu, Liyun Wang, Xinxin Li, Lili Bai, Xinmeng Gan, Liang Li, Chunchun Han.

Since additional mouse sequence is available in the form of working draft assemblies, we chose to extend the analysis by including some mouse contigs that correspond to genes in the human class I region as well. The total mouse sequence covers.
