Genomic Heterogeneity in a Natural Archaeal Population Suggests a Model of tRNA Gene Disruption

Figure 2

Genomic heterogeneity in tRNAThr(GGU) gene loci in the composite genome and cloned sequences.

Schematic representation of the composite genome of C. subterraneum and the nucleotide sequences of clones JFF006_G04 and JFF014_A09 are shown (types A, B, and C, respectively). Homologous regions between the composite genome and the cloned sequences are shown in the same colors, and the similarity scores (%) against the corresponding regions in the composite genome are indicated on the cloned sequences. The genomic positions of the two distantly located regions in the composite genome are shown as red and blue numbers.
