Derivation of genome trees from comparative analyses of complete genomes

The composition on the cover highlights the derivation of genome trees from comparative analyses of complete genomes. The circular maps are associated with two complete Listeria genomes. Beyond pairwise comparisons, protein conservation profiles (with the binary data representations in the background) allow capture of the evolutionary histories of proteins jointly through multiple genomes. The intricacies of the resulting genome trees are reflected in the artistic view associated with a fractal tree (see Tekaia and Yeramian).
