Table 8 Availability of completely sequenced genomes for Eubacterial validated orphans

From: A survey of orphan enzyme activities

  Complete genome sequence Ongoing genome sequencing
  Count Proportion Count Proportion
Same species 23 31.9% 9 18.4%
Same genus, related species 12 16.7% 16 32.6%
  1. The number of available comprehensive genome sequences for validated Eubacterial orphans was tallied. Cases where the genome sequence of a species does not exist but where the sequence of a related species from the same genus is available are also listed, as are ongoing comprehensive genomic sequencing projects for genomes not currently available.
