We (Patrick Ferris and Ursula Goodenough) are engaged in limited
sequencing of regions of the C. reinhardtii mating-type locus, and
have found several instances of overlapping genes (e.g. the 3'UTR
of one message completely overlaps, on the opposite strand, the 3'UTR
of the contiguous gene as well as part of its coding sequence and its
We would appreciate learning of any other examples of such
relationships in the Chlamy genome, whether published or unpublished.
