Figure 2

Genome structure visualization. Direct comparison of two genomes at a time demonstrating some examples of large-scale genomic rearrangements. Each protein is plotted by the genomic location of the coding region and is color-coded by the degree of similarity based on the BSR as is demonstrated in the legend. A. Comparison of C. caviae GPIC and C. pneumoniae AR39. This comparison contains two genomic rearrangements of different sizes as indicated by the arrows. B. C. caviae GPIC and C. muridarum strain Nigg comparison reveals a more extensive genomic rearrangements suggesting that while proteomically these organisms are similar the genomes have diverged significantly. C. E. coli CFT073 (GenBank Accession Number AE014075) vs. E. coli K12 (GenBank Accession Number U00096). E. coli CFT073 contains a number of unique insertions that are represented as breakpoints in the plot and highlighted with arrows. The high level of synteny and similarity are exhibited by these genomes.
