<< (..) about half of shared genes are interchangeable across species. >>
<< (..) in unpublished experiments, the researchers have swapped yeast genes with analogous ones from Escherichia coli bacteria or with those from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana >>
<< About 60 percent of E. coli genes could stand in for their yeast counterparts >>
