i'm currently curious about the meaning of a special genotype abbreviation in E. coli. Particularly, i'm looking for the meaning of zig-12.
What i have revealed so far is that zig refers to the approximate deletion at 87 minutes in the E. coli chromosome (aa is 00, ab is 01, and so on ...ig therefore refers to 87). All these zih-traits (there are alos zih-35, zih-219, zih-3088, zih-3166) seem to be associated with the gene deletion mapping.
Unfortunately i have no clue what the -12 should mean?
Maybe someone of the experienced "old fellows" can help me out?
Many thanks in advance!
