Whole genome comparison of E. coli B REL606 and E. coli K-12 MG1655. Strain-specific regions are indicated by discontinuities on the diagonal line (those >10 kb are marked by arrows). Short vertical lines on each axis represent coding sequences that reside on the forward or reverse strand. Segments that occupy the same location on each genome and encode equivalent functions but are highly dissimilar are shown in bold. Except for those marked with asterisks, all the strain-specific regions coincide with genomic islands that were identified by genomic anomalies. Ticks are marked every 500 kb.
