Example text

W´ ojtowicz and J. Tiuryn size distribution of gene families in a genome seems to be invariant over time [17,18,6,7,23,8,16,20,22]. e. in the total absence of selective pressure or at least we have to assume that at the genome level selective pressure does not substantially change the shape of gene family size distribution. We are fully aware that such a purely neutralistic model cannot be truly realistic. However, it explains the biological observations and it can be very useful in further discussions in this topic.

Algorithmical point of view, the set of all common intervals of two sequences can be computed in quadratic time [22]. Note however that gene deletions or insertions, that are natural evolutionary events, can destroy common intervals, and we discuss this issue in Section 4. In Section 2, we describe precisely our method to compute a gene matching. In Section 3, we present two experimental studies of our method. We first consider 8 genomes of γ-proteobacteria, and we compare the results of our method with the LCS method of [5]; this experiment raises interesting facts about the properties of these two notions of conserved structures in the comparison of more than two genomes.

The results are given in Tables 1 and 2. Table 1. 2 First, it is interesting to notice that the number of true positives gene pairs in consistent components decreases when one reduces the minimal length of matched LCS, which is expected, while it increases when one reduces the Inferring Positional Homologs with Common Intervals of Sequences 31 Table 2.
