Figure 10: Differences in Translation vs. Database Matches. Nucleic acid databases were searched for matches with specially designed queries (see figure 8): compressed (Comp.), overlappingly translated and extended (OTSExt.) and Non-OTS (Ext). All three forms could be translated into the same protein sequence but in different ways. The GC content (#/30) is color-coded. Columns represent the mean ± S.D. The significance of differences between groups is indicated on the connecting lines.
