Haloquadratum walsbyi : Limited Diversity in a Global Pond

Figure 6

Categories of strain-specific regions, plotted according to the relative numbers in each type.

Pie chart showing the types of strain specific regions in both strains. Blue: mobile genetic elements, which includes transposons and transposase-free mobile elements (MITEs, PATEs, and SMRs). Green: insertions and deletions (indels). Red: Deletion-Coupled Insertions (DCI). Long indels and DCIs (> 1.5 kb) are filled colour sectors while medium (0.15–1.5 kb) or short (20–150 bp) sequences in these categories are dotted. Numbers at the outer edge of each sector are the numbers of cases in each category. Data from Table S4.
