- ‘The endogenous AtHD1 is a single-copy gene located on chromosome 4.’
- ‘In each species, we determined DNA sequence variation of five single-copy genes located in chromosomal regions with either high or low recombination rate.’
- ‘We have only used provably single-copy genes from completed genomes, and therefore this analysis is different to most other analyses in this respect.’
