During evolution of photosynthetic organisms, the genetic information provided by the internalized cyanobacteria has been transferred to the nucleus. The small genome kept by the chloroplast, the so-called plastome, displays a complex organization, comprising operons under the control of multiples promoters. In addition, polycistronic transcripts undergo multiple processing events, thus generating a complex population of mRNAs from a single gene. This chapter describes a method to investigate the diversity of the mRNA population from a single gene by circular RT-PCR. The protocol provided here allows for the simultaneous mapping of both 5' and 3' ends of the same RNA molecule.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 July 2018.
All research outputs
of 23,094,276 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
of 13,208 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 442,658 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
of 1,499 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 23,094,276 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 13,208 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 442,658 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,499 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
