Figure 2.16The rice chloroplast genome

Only those genes with known functions are shown. A number of the genes contain introns which are not indicated on this map. These discontinuous genes include several of those for tRNAs, which is why the tRNA genes are of different lengths even though the tRNAs that they specify are all of similar size.
