Figure 2

Comparison of strains using different indexes. The four columns correspond to (from left to right): (1) mean %identity provided by BLAST when the match occurred on more than half the length of the 500 bp of submitted flanking sequence ; (2) proportion (%) of flanking sequences that matched on more than half their length between the two strains ; (3) proportion (%) of tandem repeats of a different size in the two strains ; and (4) plot of the positions of homologous tandem repeat loci in the two genomes which indirectly reflects large scale genome rearrangements. Species are listed according to the first index (mean %identity)
