||Researchers used synthetic operons to systematically examine
whether the number, length, or order of the genes in an
operon modulates gene expression. Decay of full-length cfp and cfp-lacZ mRNA measured by Northern blots following treatment with rifampicin.
||It should be noted that because the mRNA lifetime
is calculated from the degradation rate, it does not include
the time taken to transcribe the mRNA.
