Hi all,

I have a draft genome of bacterial gene and try to find out whether it has an operon for respective rRNA genes (5S, 23S, 16S). I found that it has all three rRNA genes using RNAmmer, however, I'm not sure how I can find their operons.

If you have any idea, I would really appreciate that.

Thank you in advance!

By "find their operons", you mean you want to find the genomic regions where they are located, and how many copies of the operon the draft genome has? If this is an Illumina-only draft assembly, I am afraid you won't be able to confidently ascertain both points above.

Thank you for your response! Yes I was thinking that way. This is an Illumina-only draft assembly. I found the location for each rRNA genes, but still isn't it possible to recognize the operon for each genes??
