Reference Mural RJ et al, A comparison of whole-genome shotgun-derived mouse chromosome 16 and the human genome. Science. 2002 May 31 296(5573):1661-71. p.1666 top paragraphPubMed ID12040188
Method Comparison of the structure and protein-coding potential of Mouse chromosome 16 (Mmu 16) with that of the homologous segments of the human genome identifies regions of conserved synteny with human chromosomes (Hsa) 3, 8, 12, 16, 21, and 22.
Comments Genomewide SINEs (Short INterspersed repetitive Elements) plus LINEs (Long INterspersed repetitive Elements) account for about 46% of bases in the human and only about 36% of bases in the mouse genome. Human genome is 10% larger than mouse genome
