Fig. 5

Global comparison of six P. stutzeri strains with reference to the RCH2 strain chromosome sequence. We aligned each of the individual genome sequences against the RCH2 chromosome sequence using Basic Local Alignment Search Tool BLASTN [51]. The innermost ring indicates the genomic position. The next ring is a plot of G + C content. Next five rings indicate the presence or absence of BLAST hits in that position, with each ring corresponding to one of P. stutzeri strains. The outermost ring indicates positions of RCH2-specific genes, with clusters of chemotaxis, pyruvate dehydrogenase and Flp pili genes marked orange, purple and green, respectively. The graphical view of the alignments was rendered using BLAST Ring Image Generator [52]
