    Full Name of the Resource : Functional genomics of organelle introns database
    Resource Category : Databases -> Nucleotide Sequence Databases -> Gene Structure, Introns and Exons, Splice Sites

    Brief Description : Introns in organelle genomes demonstrate wide variation in both features and behavior in Nature. Three classes of organelle introns are now recognized: 1) Group I, 2) Group II, and 3) Group III which are related to Group II introns. These introns have attracted considerable attention because of two remarkable properties: 1) the ability to self-splice, 2) the ability to function as mobile elements. These properties are being explored in order to understand gene evolution and as potential tools in genetic engineering and genomic analysis
