Sequence Annotation Notes
2003-09-22The start site for YBR095C was moved 69 nt (23 codons) downstream based on the automated comparison of closely-related Saccharomyces species. Evidence supporting this change includes: 1) This is the predicted start methionine in the majority of Saccharomyces species orthologs analyzed by Kellis et al. and/or Cliften et al.; 2) Significant sequence conservation begins abruptly at this predicted start methionine.
