Gene Diagrams

Here we exhibit the results of parsing a gene diagram. The details are similar to the previous examples. The full gene grammar is available for perusing. Here is a gene diagram with one of the three genes found highlighted:


The primary components of a gene are the segments and an (optional) backbone. The highlighted gene has three segments. Two are crosshatched and the third, middle segment, has further subdivisions. The grammar used had no provision for the long vertical or diagonal connecting lines showing the correspondence between sites in the three gene variants in the figure.
