rRNAs

Known rRNA sequences (INSDC accession nos. DQ355266, M11585, M18170, X00755) were searched against the genome sequence by BLASTN. For 5S-rRNA, any hits with 60bp or more in length and nucleotide identity of ≥80% were selected. For the other rRNAs, any hits with 90% or more nucleotide identity were selected.
