Occurrences of the largest genome fragments unshared between B. pinnipedialis B2/94 and B. microti CCM 4915 in selected Brucella genomes. Occurrences of the largest genome fragments unshared between B. pinnipedialis B2/94 and B. microti CCM 4915 in selected Brucella genomes. For each organism, the number of positions in its genome that are found similar to the original fragment is reported. The column "Origin of sequence data" indicates "GenBank" for sequences deposited in the complete genome division of GenBank, "Patric" if the sequence originates from the Pathosystems Resource Integration Center of the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute, and "Broad" if he sequence originates from the Brucella genome sequencing project at the Broad Institute.
