Repeat Map of E. coli. The Repeat Map of the whole Escherichia coli genome reveals the 3-mer frequency pattern characteristic of exons. The majority of this genome sequence is protein coding, making it a better example than the human genome. The visible pixel pattern is dark, dark, light, which repeats every 3 pixels and is due to codon bias. This is an average of all local alignments ranging from offset 1 to 250, so it effectively negates the fact the individual exons exist in different reading frames.
