  1. *Ranking according to occupied base pairs in 5.4 Mb of N. furzeri GRZ as given in column 3. For consensus sequence of one repeat unit, and deduced from sequences of most similar repeat units only. The 24-nucleotide microsatellite comprises a heterogeneous fraction. The genomic clone used for FISH analysis has a G+C content of 58.1%. ND, not determined.
