Can recombination take place in bacterial protein coding gene?
I am trying to learn the selective pressure of a bacterial metal resistance gene. It seems to be a good idea to screen for recombinant sequences before conducting selection inference for viral genomes, however, I am not sure if the same applies to bacterial genes (rather than genomes), can recombination occur in bacterial genes, and is it necessary to filter out recombinant sequences?
Thank you for any insights!
