  1. Truncation refers to shortening of the gene sequence due to partial deletion or genome rearrangement. Small hypothetical genes with multiple matches are not included, as these are likely to be remnants of mobile elements. Genes annotated as truncations in wMel are not included, as these are likely to be inactive in wMel.
