Abstract

Genomic analysis was performed on the Breast Carcinoma Amplified Sequence 3 gene family in Glycine max (soybeans). This study determined the extents and characteristics of the Breast Carcinoma Amplified Sequence 3 gene family and determined relationships that could potentially result in the expansion of the gene family. BCA Sequence 3 was characterized by expression profiles, gene structure, protein structure, and possible functions. This classification and organization of information was made possible by online bioinformatics tools.
