Dear Chlamy colleagues,

We are currently investigating the role of introns in gene expression in
Chlamy. A search through the literature suggests that all genes so far
characterised contain introns. Is this true or does anyone have an
intron-less Chlamy gene?

Also, the smallest intron we can find is 62 bases. Can anyone beat this?
(A prize of one beer at the next Chlamy Conference to the winner!).

Best regards,
