Reference Tomb et al., The complete genome sequence of the gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori. Nature. 1997 Aug 7 388(6642):539-47. p. 540 left column, second paragraph from bottomPubMed ID9252185
Method The H. pylori genome sequence was obtained by a whole-genome random sequencing method. 1,590 predicted coding sequences were identified. They were searched against a non-redundant protein database resulting in 1,091 putative identifications that were assigned biological roles using a classification system adapted from Riley 1993 (PMID 7508076).
Comments The 1,590 predicted genes had an average size of 945 bp, similar to that observed in other prokaryotes (refs 7–9 in article), and no genome-wide strand bias was observed (Fig. 2). More than 70% of the predicted proteins in H. pylori have a calculated isoelectric point (pI) greater than 7.0, compared to ,40% in H. influenzae and E. coli.
