Mapping of S. aureus JKD6008 contigs on S. aureus N315 genome. Using a related template genome, rapid mapping of sequence reads, or of pre-assembled contigs is smoothly achieved. As in Fig. 2, the number in the left scale indicates the location in the genome template (in kilobases), arrows in different colours mark the consensus regions of mapping, i.e., red indicates the forward strand and green reverse. All mapped sequences are listed. Together, after mapping, they represent the major part of the JDK6008 genome.
