The nucleotide sequence of cosmid clone 9765, which contains 30.8 kb of the right arm of chromosome VI, was determined. Both strands were sequenced, with an average redundancy of 8.17 per base pair by both dye primer and dye terminator cycle sequencing methods. The G+C content of the sequence was found to be 40.3%. Fifteen open reading frames (ORFs) greater than 100 amino acids and one tRNA-Tyr gene (SUP6) were detected. Seven of the ORFs were found to encode previously identified genes (HIS2, CDC14, MET10, SMC2, QCR6, PH04 and CDC26). One ORF, 9765orfF010, was found to encode a new member of the Snf2/Rad54 helicase family. Three ORFs (9765orfR002, 9765orfR011 and 9765orfR013) were found to be homologous with Schizosaccharomyces pombe polyadenylate binding protein, Escherichia coli hypothetical 38.1-kDa protein in the BCR 5' region, and transcription regulatory protein Swi3, respectively.
